We had a chance to have a very impromptu chat with Tim Holtz as he made an amazing make-n-take at the Ranger Inc. booth. Tim was, as you might expect, gracious, friendly and passionate about his work. Here’s what we asked him and his responses.
CC: How many days a week do you spend creating?
Tim: Every day.
CC: For how many hours? Like a full time job?
Tim: Yes. And I love it. People ask me all of the time “What do you do to relax?” and I answer “This” or they ask “What do you do with your free time?” and I answer “This“. This is what I love and I do it all day, every day because I love what I do.
CC: You are among people who understand that.
CC: What percentage of items would you say are projects you create that you don’t end up liking?
Tim: Not many. Probably less than 10%. Is that bad for me to admit? (laughing) Mostly because I am very stubborn. Of course, I have waffles here and there, but if something isn’t working, I don’t give up, I keep working on it until it does.
