“The humour isn’t ‘added,’ it’s an integral part of my take on things. I was just trying to be honest. Years of cartooning have taught me that the truth is funny enough. I try to avoid "gagging”; any humor in my work comes from my honestly finding life funny. In fact the more painful it is, the more funny it is. ”
