“If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to articulate those parameters and that in itself defines you, then do it. But I am an actress, man. I live in the fucking ambiguity of this life and I love it. I don’t feel like it would be true for me to be like, ‘I’m coming out!’ No, I do a job. Until I decide that I’m starting a foundation or that I have some perspective or opinion that other people should be receiving…I don’t. I’m just a kid making movies.”
So I saw American Ultra last night! It was crazy seeing stuff I drew on the big screen! I designed the Apollo Ape and Chip the Brick characters for the film, filled the sketchbooks that Mike draws in, and drew on the walls of the house they live in. In addition to the stuff I made specifically for the movie, the set decorators used my personal artwork to decorate the house. It’s all kind of mind blowing for me to see, and it’s easily the biggest deal of my freelance art career so far.
Here’s a drawing that features pretty prominently in the movie.
