"THIS IS WHAT I SAY THE PIRATE PIG IS. . . "
This is where we debate who and what we are. We each will take a stab and throw a stone or two. Then, we will list the points on which we agree.
Just Kibbe: My primary motivator for starting/continuing the Pirate Pig website is to build stronger friendships among us, and to encourage each of our individual creative endeavors. From this, great things (most likely currently unconceived) will sprout. I see the Pirate Pig as a Creativity Incubator, which through its name and myriad activities (events, books, paraphernalia, website, etc.) encourages us all to produce, and to provide us with outlets for presentation to each other and the public, and give us the momentum to keep honing our skills.
Nate Mohatt: I see us a friends and artists, who have banded together for greater camaraderie, identification, and promotive force. The Pirate Pig is for me then a collective (almost a co-op) that seeks to strengthen and promote its members' art, as well as to a lesser extent the art of the extended network of friends.
