  • "Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.."
    Scott Adams
  • "I decided to be more brave about what was coming out. I used to draw that stuff in secret and throw it away. Flush it down the toilet. I wanted to see what the readership could take."
    Robert Crumb
  • "While I still admire the hand-painted backgrounds and looks of traditional animation, it's hard not to sit up and take notice of computer animation."
    Jim Davis

    Walt Disney
  • "I love the idea that we put in jokes the kids don't get. And that later, when they grow up and read a few books and go to college and watch the show again, they can get it on a completely different level."
    Matt Groening
  • "To me, it's not work. When I draw and I write, I find it relaxing. It's not like 9-to-5, where a man goes to a job and he isn't really interested in the job. Luckily, I get paid for doing what I'd do for nothing."
    Bob Kane
  • "I grew up wanting to be an artist, for some unknown reason. I wanted to have paintings up on walls. And, you know, I sort of struggled very hard to become an impoverished artist. And when I finally realised that goal, I thought, 'Well, now I'm going to have to do something to earn a living.'"
    Bill Leak
  • "My cartoons have also had me labelled a misogynist, a blasphemer, a homophobe, a royalist, a misanthrope and a traitor, to name but a few. I would sum it all up by saying: I am a cartoonist."
    Michael Leunig
  • "Absolutely, we were influenced by The Simpsons. We'd be stupid not to be. They put that out there, and we took a cue from that.'"
    Seth MacFarlane
  • "If I were a better artist, I'd be a painter, and if I were a better writer, I'd write books.. but I'm not, so I draw cartoons!."
    Charles Schulz
