"When I get up in the morning I know exactly what I'm going to be doing. I'm going to be working. I don't kn ow exactly what the works are going to be about but they find their way." Leonardo Drew, Art 21
"I had the ability to copy a cartoon directly from the television at a young age. but at the same time, there was no original thought.
I began to question what I was doing up against what I had seen and what I had felt. More probably what I had felt." Drew Art 21
" My ability to draw and paint well was actually getting in the way of me realizing something larger. It's hard to look past something so beautifully done and then ask the question 'what's underneath that. I decided it was time for me to stop using what I did well and said, 'ok you're going to have to learn how to create." Leonardo Drew, Art 21 What then is creating?
