sometimes when I am going back through past work and see an unfinished sketch,  I find the inspiration rekindles… it’s like meeting up with an ex and discovering that you still can have really great sex

ANGIE: Do you have any thoughts on why you leave pieces unfinished?

MITCH: Generally, I tend to build up a head of steam on a piece and work on it; however, especially on complex or detailed pieces, I tend to either lose my inspiration or my focus. Rarely, I may come back and finish a piece, but generally they lay there like half finished skeletons

ANGIE: Do you think that you could force inspiration ? or do you find that you have so many ideas, that leaving one in the dust is often a relief?

MITCH: I tend to be overwhelmed with ideas, and when one grabs my attention from the ether, I focus on it entirely until I am distracted by something else. However, sometimes when I am going back through past work and see an unfinished sketch,  I find the inspiration rekindles… it’s like meeting up with an ex and discovering that you still can have really great sex
