“Nobody can tell you what you’re doing is good, meaningful or worthwhile.”

“"It takes time." I never wanted to believe this, but I think it’s the only advice that anyone gives which is actually true. You just have to sit for a long time, for many years, and then something develops. There’s no wise words that are going to help you, because there is no substitute for doing it yourself. There’s no teacher who can say anything that will be a substitute for your own time and effort.”
Claire Greenwood (source), talking about zazen, but true in a much wider sense, obviously

“To achieve style, begin by affecting none — that is, place yourself in the background.”

“The problem isn’t coming up with ideas, it is how to contain the invasion.”

“Sometimes it takes (…) the fact that you’re writing for a friend, that you’re not writing seriously, that you really find what it is you’re wanting to say, and how you want to say it.”

Bill Sienkiewicz 1989: The Brain of Mister X (unlettered pages published 2004)

Another Sienkiewicz deep cut.

Several of Sienkiewicz’s unlettered pages for an unfinished story from 1989 were finally published in Mister X: The Definitive Collection trade paperback, volume 1.

No reason is given for the cancelled project, or any other kind of context for that matter. The only reason I could date this as coming from 1989 was thanks to Sienkiewicz adding the date alongside his signature on one of the pages.

Elio answers the question of how he makes such realistic-looking pencil lines in Photoshop with a level of patience and generosity I would find difficult if I had been asked the same question, and the answer was “with a pencil.”
