Are you really sure that a floor can't also be a ceiling?

Originality is merely an illusion.

Drawing is deception.

He who wonders discovers that this in itself is wonder.

My work is a game, a very serious game.

What I give form to in daylight is only one per cent of what I have seen in darkness.

Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible. I think it's in my basement... let me go upstairs and check.

We adore chaos because we love to produce order.

I don't use drugs, my dreams are frightening enough.
