I define my work as a feminist act and a political act because I'm black and a woman. You don't necessarily have to claim that, but the act of making art itself is a political and feminist act when you're a woman.
Ninety percent of games lose money; 10 percent make a lot of money. And there's a consistency around the competitive advantages you create, so if you can actually learn how to do the art, the design, and the programming, you would be consistently very profitable.

I don't believe in the school of hard knocks, although I've had them. All that stuff about whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger is so not true. Do you know what makes you stronger? When people treat you and your art with dignity.
An artist's only concern is to shoot for some kind of perfection, and on his own terms, not anyone else's.
Not everybody trusts paintings but people believe photographs.

Fashion is only the attempt to realize art in living forms and social intercourse.
I think you can leave the arts, superior or inferior, to the conscience of mankind.
My painting does not come from the easel.
Art is parasitic on life, just as criticism is parasitic on art.

One eye sees, the other feels.
In a democracy, you need to have a strong judicial system. You need freedom of speech, you need art, and you need a free press.
The artist who aims at perfection in everything achieves it in nothing.
Art imitates life and, sometimes, life imitates art. It's a weird combination of elements.

The essence of all art is to have pleasure in giving pleasure.
