I felt a certain existential restlessness that was characteristic of my generation who were trying to find form. What was being churned out was insufficient. My stories required a different language, that of image and text, without either of which the story would be tonally incomplete. Text and image could well bring out the restlessness symptomatic of my generation. That was my contribution to storytelling.

You have a distinctive comical-critical commentary at the crux of your texts. What do you attribute that to? Read more...
