Kip was recently interviewed by the popular German publication, “Aufrecht Gehen Zeitschrift” (Walking Upright Magazine).
A few translated highlights:
One subject that is near and dear to Kip’s heart is his lifelong campaign to bring respect to mittens. “I think we’ve made some headway,” he notes. “So watch out, gloves.”
Kip also talks about his renowned collection of Salvadore Dali placemats. Over the years, Kip would purchase a placemat here or there, whenever he could afford to. Eventually, his entire family was able to sit down to dinner together. They would often discuss color, texture, and sometimes, even style, while passing the garlic bread.
In the same interview, Kip laments his profession’s lack of scheduled bathroom breaks, and addresses his early fear of aphids. He also speaks candidly about the bison he was finally able to forgive.
