“We live in hard times and people are in pain. Is that the best time for complex art? For me, the answer is always yes. Because I am complex. The situations we deal with are complex.
If our art is to be true, it cannot be simple.” — @Mike_Eagle@twitter.com at #xoxofest
“Twitter is bad. You shouldn’t do it.” — @ContraPoints@twitter.com at #xoxofest

“Art does not always have to be written in blood and suffering. It does not always need to be created by people who can’t afford to eat.”

Thank you for a great #xoxofest. I met so many new friends, reconnected with old ones, and had such a lovely time in Portland. Let’s do it again sometime.
And remember: “It’s okay. You should do it. You belong here.”
@matthewbischoff it's really telling, since xoxo was essentially founded on Twitter.
