"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 am doing the kind of research that legitimate natural history artists do, but I do it in a very lazy way compared to them. I don’t want to ever pretend that I’m like one of those guys. There is another level to this sort of natural history-art thing that actually doesn’t interest me, but I do a kind of imitation of it."
