WE CANNOT POSSIBLY KNOW WHAT WILL MANIFEST IN OUR LIVES. WE LIVE AND HAVE EXPERIENCES AND LEAVE PEOPLE WE LOVE AND GET LEFT BY THEM. PEOPLE WE THOUGHT WOULD BE WITH US FOREVER AREN’T AND PEOPLE WE DIDN’T KNOW WOULD COME INTO OUR LIVES DO. OUR WORK HERE IS TO KEEP FAITH WITH THAT, TO PUT IT IN A BOX AND WAIT. TO TRUST THAT SOMEDAY WE WILL KNOW WHAT IT MEANS, SO THAT WHEN THE ORDINARY MIRACULOUS IS REVEALED TO US WE WILL BE THERE, GRATEFUL FOR THE SMALLEST THINGS.

Q&A with Maritza Lugo
Once called the Indie Renaissance Girl, Maritza Lugo —aka Mindsay Mohan — is a self-taught freelance artist who lives in New York. She is the one behind Hello Giggles' Illustrated Tweet Of The Day. That's where my love for her drawings has started.
M: Give me a Cliffs Notes version of you as an artist : Indecisive, passionate, emotional, filled with so many ideas, I don't know what to do with.
M: Show me a picture of your work space :
M: Top 5 influences, GO!
In no order: comic book art, Roy Lichtenstein, other artists, emotions, film/music.
M: One drawing. The story behind it:
The story behind this one, is there is no real story. I'm moved by expression and frankly, wanted to do something out of my comfort zone, which is usually portraits. This happens to be the lead singer of Sleigh Bells, and I love lines, millions of them. This is probably my favorite drawing because it came out of nowhere and means the world to me.
M: On a short video, answer your first thought, free association, to these words:
Lunch — Horcruxes — Ryan Gosling — Pink — London —
