"In the paintings where it's there—the tenderness—I work for it. I'm not afraid of it. If I could put my bleeding heart in there, I would."
"In the Louvre I saw a picture of Genevieve sitting with the wolves and the lambs...I had stopped making images of people for a couple of years; I just wanted to make animals. But then I saw that picture, and I thought, ‘It’s really important to put them all together.’ So I drew my friend Genevieve as the Genevieve, and then I made all these wolves (I didn’t make lambs)."
