DiCarlo's pizza, Ohio Valley-style pizza

It's square pizza that's baked with the sauce, and the pepperoni and cheese go on at the end. I'm from Steubenville, and every pizza place in Steubenville is that style; it's very specific to that area. If you go home, you have to bring that back. But there's DiCarlo's in Hilliard. Every once in a while, if I have a craving for that, I'll venture there. My cousin moved to Kansas and he was craving it all the time. He would try to convince the pizza shops, like, "Please don't put the toppings on till after," and they would be like, "We can't do that. Legally, we can't." He was determined to get that but he never could.

Casey Neistat

He's one of my biggest inspirations right now. He's a filmmaker. Very handmade, handcrafted, with a handheld camera. He would edit it in iMovie. I just love his aesthetic. He's really big on YouTube now. He travels a lot and does a lot of videos with his travels. He did a video for Nike where they gave him money for an ad for their FuelBand and he took the money and traveled across the country with it. He always states if you're doing it how everybody else is doing it you're doing it wrong. I've taken that to heart.

The South Drive-In

It's like stepping into a time warp. The old speakers are still there. It's just a great vibe. That's the thing I like about it: the atmosphere, the experience. Once it gets summer, we go once a month, I'd say. A group of us, five or 10 go. We have it down. We meet at a certain gas station. We get snacks. I get pizza. We carpool down there. We get out with our lawn chairs and sit out. Some people have blankets. It's become a mini tradition.

Anyway Records

I've become friends with [Anyway Records founder/owner] Bela [Koe-Krompecher] over the years. I've had a chance to do a lot of poster work for him. I like the history of it. He's worked with Guided by Voices, but he's still current and working with The Kyle Sowashes and the Whiles. Some of my good friends are still playing. My band released a record on his label. It's an institution. He used to do a lot of posters in the early '90s, like painted on newsprint. He has a few of those and we're going to have a retrospective of Anyway Records in July. We're really excited about that.

David Bazan house shows

Dave Bazan, I've seen him play in three or four house shows in Columbus. He just shows up with a guitar, literally walks in with a guitar and just starts playing. Being in the house shows with him, his voice filling that space, is amazing. I saw him at Kenyon College the first time in a small little room. I've seen him more times in a house show situation than I have in a bar. House shows are a different experience. Especially for a touring band; it's perfect for them because they're not fighting the bar crowd, they're guaranteed money already and they're with people who want to see them, not to be at the bar. The more intimate the better show.

VHS tapes

We have a VHS collection at the shop. It started when we worked out of the basement, we just had an old VCR, and now it's become this thing we collect. People would see it at our shop, and they'd be like, "Oh you have a VHS collection, here are 50 tapes." It's really cheap to collect those. You can get a tape for 50 cents. A lot of stuff wasn't on DVD yet, too. A lot of horror movies are really fun to watch on VHS. I bought "Teachers" and it was filmed at the old COSI building and I didn't know anything about that. And then we went to this tape swap and didn't know there were people doing the same thing.

Pentel color brushes

I do a lot of poster art and typography and I've been using this Pentel color brush. My friend Lisa Ragland is one of my favorite local illustrators. She does this great typography. She put something on Instagram and I said, "What brush do you use?" She stopped by and said, "Try this out." I had never used it before and sometimes it's hard to find tools that you like, but that one, once I got the hang of it I really liked it. I've been using it a lot in my work. You have to kind of hold it a certain way and squeeze the ink out of it, but once you get the flow of it, it's easier to use. You can get a varied line quickly. It's kind of sloppy, but that's kind of what I was going for. Not as precise, but kind of quick. Whereas before I would have to fake the thickness and fill in.
