"Oh, all sorts of things [inspire me]," explains Esquivel, "Everything. Patterns in architecture, in living, the way certain things break, how colors blend and snap under shadows or sprays of light. Also people, their gestures, their sounds, the way they phrase themselves and how they wear their influences through their art and speech. Words too. I’m always fascinated by words; how they can scoop up the strange, soupy sensations of life and create these distinctions. I don’t know, there’s something very meaningful in that."
