"One day (maybe it was the early Nineties) when my life was a little less full than it is now, I spent an afternoon being stoned with a friend. We ended up in a bar and we started drawing animals without heads. The animals we drew had not been decapitated; they had been born without heads and had lived like that. Over the years there have been quite a few headless creatures in my work. Perhaps my interest in them was started on that day."
