I Love U So Mutt, 2012
Today we speak to Adeline who has an imaginary friend and his name is Yellow .
Yanda: Tell me something about you?
Adeline: I have an imaginary friend, his name is Yellow.
What do you do first when you get up in the morning?
I put on my glasses.
What daily routines you cannot do without?
Walking my dog in the morning, also a coffee after that is neccesary…
What’s your definition of happiness?
When Yellow is happy, I am also happy.
What are the things that keep you sane?
Stories of random acts of kindness or courage.
How has working for others and yourself shaped you so far?
I have discovered that there is always something to learn from anyone, if your mind is open.
Do you think working without restrictions or working for yourself can be the hardest thing to do?
Yes. Yellow would not allow that – if i have free time, I am only allowed to work for him (and he is full of restrictions).
Any heroes? What do you admire about them?
I like David Shrigley, and I can’t find the words to describe what I admire about him. That’s how awesome he is.

How do you keep educating yourself?
Get off the internet, travel with little money, walk around and observe things/people. Books are nice but Yellow gets bored with them easily.
Can taste be taught or nurtured?
Taste can be nurtured, yes…
What about hunger?
Have you ever shown your work to your parents? Do they understand what you are actually doing?
Yes. They don’t really understand, but they are happy that I can feed myself, pay the bills, and give them pocket money doing something I like.
Lastly what websites do you surf?
