Danielson: Or Why I'd Be Happy Paving the Way for a Sufjan Stevens

The conversation below unfolded from our need to unpack how profoundly we felt this film captured some aspect of our shared sense of calling, as people of faith, to do art.

A few months later The Danielson Family came to Los Angeles and Elijah and I had to go.  I drew this sketch while standing there on the front row.  That's not anger on his face I was trying to capture, it's Daniel Smith's blistering, vivid, precise intensity.
