Dan Castro / Skypie

I kind of feel if I know how to do it, too well, then I’m not having fun— I’m more like executing. So the moment that you shut off and just start doing the same thing that you did for somebody else, or kind of project, again and again, you’re kind of losing what makes it so special. So yeah, just get out there and do it!’

—Dan Castro, Director, Art Director, Editor
