I don’t necessarily know if comedy has a place in art, per se. I just know that I have no other perfect outlet to house my own sensibility, comedic or otherwise. In the mid-‘90s, before I was an artist, I was a journalist, and I thought I might make a go as a political cartoonist. Woops! Cue the Internet and the virtual death of print media, pretty much placing all controversial, independent-minded staff political cartoonists out to pasture. After that, I spent a decade as an animator until it appeared computers seemed to be the only way any studio wanted to create cartoons. I packed my pencils, paper, and old world, ‘get off my lawn’ purism, and somehow, found my way back to a more journalistic pursuit making large-scale, glorified political cartoons – I just called them ‘art’ instead.
