Personal Quote:

When I started it, I didn't think anybody would notice. It was one of those family things, and after three or four weeks, I thought the joke had worn thin and I stopped it. And then the letters started coming in. I found myself spending more time answering mail than drawing, so I gave up and put it back in. And kept it in. - on hiding his daughter Nina's name into his work See more »
