"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."
"I came up with the idea of having a story as a kind of framework to plug elements into, to let the characters have a place to exist and to grow, and to give context to the different sensibilities that the characters have. So, in essence, the story is the glue that holds everything together."
