10 Questions // Marcus Poston : Manhattan

1. What inspires you these days?

2. Who are your heroes?

Anyone who can wake up in the morning feeling like shit and get through the day without making anyone else feel that way.

The moment when I have unquestionably earned and received love.

The idea that I might never receive that which I have earned.

5. What makes you laugh hard?

Dudes outside of bars that say, “hey ladies”.

6. Who are your favorite artists of all time?

The ones I’ve met … anyone that has the balls to say they are one … the ones that propagate their art regardless of fame, exposure or attention.

7. What is your guiltiest pleasure?

Why would I ever feel guilty about feeling pleasure?

8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
