What is your favorite kind of pen/pencil?

I like just about any sharp pencil, as long as the eraser is nice and healthy—none of that dried out nonsense allowed.

Do you listen to music while you work? What kind?

Lately I’ve been loving The Goldberg Variations, Glenn Gould playing Bach. At times you can hear him breathing or the sound of the piano pedals moving and the key action. And also Con Todo El Mundo by Khruangbin
