I'd much rather hang out in a cafe. That's where things are really happening.
And I think I find, I know a lot of people around, in different cities, and so it's not - it might sound strange - but it's not that hard to say good-bye, because I know there's other people where I'm going. I can sort of fit in in a lot of places.
I tried to draw people more realistically, but the figure I neglected to update was myself.
And, in some ways I like traveling, in other ways I'm sort of fed up by the whole notion.
When I was there, something clicked in my head; I found myself interviewing people, searching out facts and figures. Later on I became much more self-conscious of what I was doing.
It's a visual world and people respond to visuals.
When I went to Bosnia, I was there to tell someone else's story and I was more methodical.
I don't often go to a place just to check out all the cultural sites of a city.
There's probably one more story about Bosnia that I'd like to do, because I spent a fair amount of time on the Serb side of the lines, which isn't apparent in the other books.
I don't like just traveling in for a short time. I've done that before, because sometimes you work for magazines and they have a budget, and if you're working for them, they want something by a certain time.
It became clear to me that I had to push it toward a more representational way of drawing.
Of course, I'm drawn to a place like Iraq because It's the biggest story of our generation.
With comics you can put interesting and solid information in a format that's pretty palatable.
I think I'm generally a good listener anyway.
I think any journalist who spends time in a place realizes that there are lots of stories around beyond their primary story. You meet so many interesting people and have all kinds of experiences.
