It’s the most difficult thing I’ve ever done, and all I know is I started it thinking that one day I would be like Andy Kaufman or something and I would just keep it up. Then one day I realized I wasn’t going to do it. Maybe one day it will be the most beautiful thing that happened to it.
It’s so hard to just sit back and relax and look at something. You don’t know how many lines you’ve missed, and what’s still in your head. One day you start drawing and you come back from that and it’s like, “Oh my god, I miss this.” I have to learn to take all that out. That is the whole reason I have an art gallery and make it a place where everybody can come and see my paintings and learn to experience that. I mean, that’s what I want them to be.
Your paintings have an incredible depth to them. How do you approach that?
I never draw to really connect to them, like a lot of people do. I just try to visualize as much as possible.
Do you have specific rules for how you paint?
Absolutely, to be honest. There are certain points I’ll do things differently than the others, because sometimes I want to make an image for my friends, and sometimes I don’t. But yeah, it’s all about trying to visualize. When you have to come up with ideas for some of your paintings and you feel like you could do this better, it’s all an effort.
Why did you start making things? What was it that you liked about comics so much?
When I started making comics, it was just something that I read. I was born into the culture and I was just really into it. I got my first comic book when I was like 9. We started watching it with my father, and then the whole thing was like a big, super superhero thing. I wanted to be in one of those superhero movies. When I saw the Superman movies, I didn’t like that. And then my brother got his comics, and he liked the fact that he could do things, that he had a super-powers. And the whole “I can do any thing” thing, and “I will never be good at anything but be good at this and this,” and so that’s how I started.
I thought, “I can make all this stuff, and everyone will like it.” I just really got into it
