Show business is just like high school, except you get paid.
Never underestimate a child's ability to get into more trouble.
Having children is like having a bowling alley installed in your brain
It's hard to decide if TV makes morons out of everyone, or if it mirrors Americans who really are morons to begin with
Having a family is like having a bowling alley installed in your brain.
A cult following is a nice way of saying very few people like you.
It was taunted as reality. It was dangled as a carrot. In terms of people's hopes and dreams, to say that that is less of a reality than the daily grind they find themselves in is maybe not correct.
I kind of just lucked into and fell into the other profession. It was really just an outgrowth of the fact that when I was in art school, I had no money whatsoever.
I try to not get to the point where one is making wallpaper, or simply painting money. I want to make sure that I am at least trying to weigh myself down, that there's a challenge each time.
I had a teacher in art school who said something about the only works he really enjoyed seeing or found much in were works where he had a sense that a discovery was made in the course of making this object. I like to hold to that as my marching orders.
I've been doing it all along, ever since I got out of art school.
If there is some art involved, I'd like it to be that it came through the cracks of daily work.
I never stopped making pictures. There were times when more of my income was coming from other sources, and I had to devote more time to television and movies and records.
It really is a day job, and it also seems to have virtually disappeared-with no remorse, really. It gives me more time to paint.
To be able to get up and be in my studio and work all day is a great joy.
