‘The most important question is: the content of your work – What can you show in art that is not shown? What is important to say at this time? What is your mission? What are you passionate about? Focus on being really good at drawing, the basis of everything, whether it be computer animation, or painting, if you can’t draw, you can’t think. No intelliget artist, no intelligent art’.
