Name: Carolyn Kopecky
Website: "Artwork at mnartists.org/Carolyn_Kopecky, video stuff at livestream.com/mtnternet."
What's your job?
"I'm a freelance artist. Most of the work I do right now is designing a giftware line called Kopecky! under a company called One Hundred 80 Degrees. I draw pictures of cute little characters that are turned into household knick-knacks, like candles or salt and pepper shakers. In the summertime I also give Segway tours of Minneapolis."
Other than your job, what are your claims to fame?
"I get to play with other artists on two live television shows every week on MTN. I make puppets and props, wear crazy costumes and dance on Sunday nights for Freaky Deeky. Monday nights I draw on Philo, an interactive show where we create a comic strip in an hour, the story based on the callers' ideas."
What's your relationship status?
"Ridiculously in love with Hamil Tremaine Griffin-Cassidy."
Where are you most likely to be seen?
"At the Soap Factory, where I have a studio. I also like pretty places like Psycho Suzi's and the Kitty Cat Klub."
Where are you most likely not to be seen?
"Most downtown clubs seem overcrowded with creepsters."
Besides your significant other, with what people are you most likely to be seen?
"Freaks and fox puppies!"
Where were you born?
What neighborhood do you live in?
"Northeast Minneapolis. I love it."
What's your ride?
"An old green Schwinn, my feet, and fantastic friends who drive me to the grocery store."
What's the best way for someone to start a conversation with you?
"Shout 'bunny!' and point."
