Theatre Of The Absurd
Absurdity is an artists friend. My mind works in mysterious ways. I think it is from watching too many cartoons as a kid. When I was little I got up at the crack of dawn, ran to the basement turned on the TV and filled my head with lots of funny stuff. I'd watch Colonel Bleep followed by Davey and Golieth, Gumby, Diver Dan, and Beany and Cecil. I really believe it helped me creatively. Bugs Bunny didn't play by the rules. I didn't want to be a policeman or fireman. I wanted to work on Tennessee Tuxedo. Come up with gags for George of the Jungle. When I was growing up there were seven channels and television was god. Now I have seven hundreds channels and there isn't a thing to watch. How did that happen? Drawing is my TV now and I usually tune into myself for amusement.
