Mr Pink, it started as a 6-Year-old to draw Comics . How did it come about?
My sister collected mass Comics. I looked at this literally since my birth, preferably those of Carl Barks. I loved the liveliness of his characters. For me, they were like real people, so real such as my parents.
How do you, as a self-taught such a high level can?
Actually, I would have the family business to continue. In the Comic book industry, I stumbled in. My enthusiasm and constant Practice have certainly contributed to the fact that I've come this far. And my obsession with Detail.
How can you tell the difference between a professionally trained comic artists, and you?
A trained draftsman can do much more work in much less time. I needed often twice as long as other signatories. But otherwise I would not have wanted that. If I want to make a work that can be done as quickly as possible and convenient, I would have stayed in construction. But I wanted to live my dream.
you are in Europe, more famous than in the United States. How come?
Americans are only interested in things that are new. Everything that is older than five years is already considered old, and Comics are not new. As I travelled the first Time to Europe, I was surprised by the sense of Tradition. In Europe, young people are interested in what their parents do, and decide for yourself what you find good. Americans like only what your friends see also great – they mimic each other. That's why it frustrates me when I see that more and more young Europeans are imitating the Americans. Stop trying to imitate the US culture! Anyway, it's on the Crumble.
What would you give to a young comic book artist?
Go on the safe side, draw your Comics as a Hobby and build a life. Maybe a miracle is obtained as is the case with me, and you're lucky enough to be able to out of your Hobby a profession.
you Are drawing a Comic?
no. I draw only for my Fans. The Comic book industry has taken me to the enthusiasm. Big names like Disney take advantage of their artists and to publish ugly colored Comics under my name. I'm not complaining, because I earned the work a lot. But if somewhere my Name is on it, I want the quality is right. That was always my top priority.
