Western art is built on the biographical passion of one artist for another.
I do not think that obsession is funny or that not being able to stop one's intensity is funny.
The figure is still the only thing I have faith in in terms of how much emotion it's charged with and how much subject matter is there.
I've never had an easy relationship with critics. I hold a lot of homicide in my heart. If this was another time, I'd be packing a piece.
My attitude towards drawing is not necessarily about drawing. It's about making the best kind of image I can make, it's about talking as clearly as I can.
I have come to terms with a lot of things, because, when all's said and done, there's really very little one can do about a lot of things. You just accept them. The point is you just have to keep on working and you just have to keep on living.
