m: i became aware of your work about 2 or 3 yrs ago...how long have been putting stuff out on the street?
e: april was actually my 4 year anniversary.


m: how come this month 4 yrs ago it happened? had you wanted to get work out before?
e: not really, i was sort of vaguely aware or street art, i had been thinking about it 2 years before that. that it would be an interesting experiment to take some lithographs i was working on and seal them in a plastic covering and leave them on the streets for people, but i sort of lost interest…and just got back to studio work.so to answer the question of why it has been 4 years i basically was working at a web firm as their senior programmer and one day this guy comes in with a book of neckface. so i just started drawing in chalk this little character, the "ELBOW-TOE"


me: i read that your name comes from a sort of spoof off of neckface.

e: yeah, someone at my job had been complaining about him and i was sort of joking around that if i was a graf writer i would be ELBOW-TOE


me: ha.
e: that was a few weeks before i saw that book, so it must have been some alignment of the stars or something.
