DV ON THE DETAILS

"Does anyone read a picture book from the beginning? I don’t. That’s one reason I think the Japanese are so smart — it’s instinctive to start at the end.

The eye has to travel…

I have the kind of eye that will travel over a magazine page, find a tiny, insignificant-looking detail no bigger than your fingernail — and get totally mesmerized. My immediate instinct is to want to blow it up — making it big!"
