It's fitting that, early in Patrick O'Keefe's graffiti career, his art got him busted AND hired on the same day. From then on, his career has been a collision of timelines from across the art-verse, starting with graffiti, then studying animation at Sheridan College, painting at Emily Carr, followed by working in gaming, and more recently, art direction and visual development on Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Patrick traces these threads with Bobby and they talk about the many points at which their lives have intersected even before this interview.
