Personal Quote:

(On Terry Gilliam, director of Brazil) Having discovered Terry's work and seeing that he followed a similar course, beginning in the visual arts as a cartoonist working with Monty Python, I felt a kinship to him and felt like he was someone I wanted to emulate in my career. The visual design in Brazil is so astonishing, my head almost exploded. See more »
