Brett’s Q & A continues…

TribeLA Magazine: What is your favorite indulgence? Do you cook? What is your specialty meal? What is your favorite restaurant in LA where you indulge yourself?
Brett: I have an addiction to Trader Joe’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups. My favorite restaurant in LA is Little Toni’s in North Hollywood. Hands down the best pizza in the city!

TribeLA Mag: Who or what holds a special place in your heart? How does this factor into your creative process?
Brett: My 4 year old twin daughters, Citrus and Zofija. I work ten times harder as an artist than I ever did since they were born.

TribeLA Mag: What is your all-time favorite piece of writing/art/music you’ve created?
Brett: My 40″x70″ oil painting of Candyland in my “Retropop” series. I’ve sold all but three paintings in that series and I purposely set the price so high it’s never sold. I don’t know if I ever want to let it go. Eventually I will. Every work of art I create belongs on someone else’s wall.
