Interview / Entrevue

When I was around seven or eight I got my hands on some comic books that my parents confiscated for their lewd content. Years later, when they returned the comics to me I remember thinking I hadn’t missed much. I’d been drawn to the illustration style more than anything else. There was also a MAD Magazine or two that I kept hidden. Perhaps it was my unadventurous literary taste or the fact that books were seen by my parents as a more legitimate form of reading, but I never had to hide a book at home.

“You are riding a drawing.” from Bento’s Sketchbook by John Berger.

I need a clean desk when I start to work because it tends to get cluttered quickly.

Were there any important incidents/insights that I forgot to write down in my journal?

I’ve always wanted to live near a large body of water.
