Q: You love to write and illustrate. Have you written any of your own books, if not when will you?
A: No, I have never written a book. I am currently working (inbetween everything else) on a “How to Draw Caricatures” book, but every time I think I’ll have a little time to work on it some big job comes along and it’s shoved to the back burner.
Currently the big job keeping me from working on the caricature book is, coincidentally, a book… written by someone else, however. This project will take me the entire month of May, but the end result I hope will be something I am proud of.
Writing is something I enjoy but not something I feel I am professionally good at. Maybe one of these days I will have a brainstorm and come up with a really good idea that I can run with… but I’m still waiting for that epiphany.
Thanks to Michael Garisek for the question. If you have a question you want answered for the mailbag about cartooning, illustration, MAD Magazine, caricature or similar, e-mail me and I’ll try and answer it here!
