Asking a cartoonist for an artist statement is asking for trouble. I could say I’m trying to portray the inner self through the outer expression but I’d rather not. In fact I think that's creepy. The fact is I have no idea what I’m doing making all these creatures and no idea why I’m doing it other than I get a little crazy if I don’t. I’ve been doing them for a very long time so maybe it’s become some kind of addiction. It could be because my father, (a well respected businessman), and myself generally sat down to dinner with an 8 inch stack of Uncle Scrooge and Bugs Bunny comic books…each. This may have damaged me in some way. I know it damaged my mother.
