Below are a few questions we asked Charlie about himself and his piece, take a look!
- What does ART mean to you? It means I can express my ideas both grand and mediocre.

- What was your favorite class growing up in high school? The NO JUDGEMENT art class of course
- Where did you first get your interest in human anatomy/Skeletons? Disney’s Silly Symphony Skeleton Dance cartoon from 1929
- What kind of movies do you find yourself watching the most? I like gross-out spooky movies.
- What’s one moment of feedback positive or negative you were given on your art that you will always remember? I showed my dad a painting of a rotting head and he said I should paint horses.
- Tell us about your Character from City Cryptid: Ningen. What’s his personality like? What’s his full name? Where did this character originate from and how does it play to the cryptid theme? Docile unless disturbed. (It is disturbed in my version). Full Name: Icee Origin : The slushy waters of the Antarctic ocean.
- What made you want to be a part of the City Cryptid Mini Series with Kidrobot? Cryptids are awesome and I wanted to learn more about them.
- Is this your first piece you have done with City Cryptid and Kidrobot? Yes it is.
- Why do you think this Mini series fits into the social scene/political situation/current everyday life or do you think it was just for fun? As I mentioned before its important to remember that in this world mysteries remain.

Q & A with Toy Designer One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj on release of The Rejects - Dark Chocolate Edition on Kidrobot.com. "I’ve been paralyzed and in a wheelchair for almost 20 years and I spent so much of that time creating all this weird, emotional art to help deal with it. I got to a point where that got old and making these silly characters was way more therapeutic than trying to put my feelings into a painting. So now I make my little guys to make myself laugh or smile and hope that it does the same for others." -One-Eyed Girl AKA Kasey Tararuj
