You’re primarily known for your pen and ink drawings, but recently returned to working in oils. What led you away from paints and why did you come back to them?
I started painting in high school for all the wrong reasons: I thought it was the only was anyone was going to take me seriously as an artist. Up until then I had been drawing in ball point pen. I loved cartoons and comic books but I was also loved the masters, I was a real art nerd and I didn’t know how to combine these two passions.
