Discovering what I think

August 25th, 2014

Joan Didion said: “I don’t know what I think until I write it down.” And before her, Flannery O’Connor said essentially the same thing: “I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.”

The same could be said for coming up with cartoon ideas. And also for coming up with answers during interviews. Recently, I had the pleasure of doing an interview with Michael Lang, who along with Corey Hart of Single Source, filmed and edited this mini-doc/interview. Mike asked great questions, which is to say, he got me to open up and say things I didn’t always know that I knew. In my book, the sign of a great interview is when, as the subject of the interview, you learn a little something about yourself.
