Interview / Entrevue

As a child I read a lot of comic books—mostly at the homes of family and friends, and in the waiting rooms of dentists and doctors. Though I didn’t hide the reading of comic books, I thought they were more for fun rather than “getting good grades in school”. Now as a writer, graphic designer, and a grad student I know that comic books were a gateway to my trade and contribute to my interest in the graphic novelization of academic projects.

One of my favourite lines is from a poem by Czeslaw Milosz called “Secretaries”:

"I am no more than a secretary of the invisible thing… "

I like a clean desk.

Did I do my homework?

Pilgrimage to the island of Kudaka in the Ryukyus—walk along the beach, watch/listen to the sea.
