I haven't done a book for about 3 or 4 years now.
How do I feel about war? Well anybody I guess, I hope, I don't like it.
England was incredibly dull and everything exciting seemed to be in America.
Well I was an asthmatic child. So that for most of my childhood I was in bed. Bedridden.
So war is an extremely sad business, because the majority of people don't want to be in it.
Where as in animation you have to kind of do a series of drawings in between to complete the movement.
I just recently did a film with Disney, and they put the drawings straight on the computer. And it's all painted on the computer now and not by hand anymore.

I have been to several wars to draw. I went to Vietnam. And made drawings in Vietnam during that period of the war there, and found that to be a very very sad situation.
