"I have been drawing a long time…. At first, when I started drawing, I used just a black pencil and smaller paper than now…. Sometimes when I put the paper down to draw, for a long time I leave it there trying to think of what I'm going to make. I always think maybe it will be better this way – or that it will be better that way. And sometimes when I really get stuck, I just go ahead and draw. A lot of times, I don't make what is in my head because, as I go along, it even gets better. Maybe a lot of the artists are like me. They get stuck, and as they go along, it just comes."1
