If you could make up an ice cream flavour what would it be?
Victory. The ingredients are ground meteorite, saliva from whoever's currently the oldest person on Earth, a single pubic hair from Prince, and coconut.
If you could marry a cartoon character who would it be? Why?
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (comic book version). She’s too good for me though. Besides, an animator and a cartoon character seems like a recipe for codependence.
What would be your last supper?
I'm allergic to dairy products but if I'm going to be executed anyway then pizza and ice cream please. Hang on, why am I being executed? Surely that's the real question here?
Who’s your favourite film maker?
Do you have a nickname?
Thumb. Only one person calls me that so far but I like it.
