Interview: Mick Ebeling

Ideas, News No Comments

We got the chance to ask a few questions to one of our speakers, Mick Ebeling. His talk is session #1 was today was about the project that started The Not Impossible Foundation, The Eyewriter, for his friend, the famous street artist and ALS patient, Tempt.

You spoke about the powerful impression yesterday’s TEDxKids session had on you. What did you want to be when you grew up? A basketball player. Hands down, no questions asked.

How close did you get to realizing that dream? I played basketball as a kid, and even played in college for two years at the Air Force Academy.

The Eyewriter is the first project for the Not Impossible Foundation? Yes, in fact, we refer to it as project 001, and we’re looking for project 002.

Is Tempt making art now? My friend, Tony, his street art name is Tempt, is making art. We’re getting a gallery show together soon of his work.

Our thanks again to Mick Ebeling for answering a few questions. If you’re interested in seeing some of Tempt’s eye tags, you can view them online here.
