The challenge of simplifying characters down to little squares was my hobby for a little while. Some were easy. Spider-Man proved impossible.

A million comics to be drawn and put together in a million ways and a million comics in a million styles to buy. I'd like to get them all. I'd like to draw them all. I'd store them in a giant version of one of those plastic capsule vending machines, but I wouldn't need a quarter. And each and every time I wanted a comic, I'd just turn the wheel and one of the million comics would tumble out.

This race-car book was only going to take the form of little eight-page installments every now and then, but it's taken me over, and the real joy of it for me is just how loose it is. No plans, no thumbnails. Total liberation.
And if in a scene I happen to want to have a band playing Weezer's In the Garage in Portuguese (cause the race took place in Brazil)(and cause In the Garage kind of sums up my whole attitude with this comic), that's what will be.

Way way back back when I was twenty-four, I wanted to be the Jack Kerouac of comics, and I had this idea of drawing comics all across the country. I stop in a place for a little bit, draw a comic, and then move on. A series of comics written on the road. I was serious. I even wrote emails to a number of my friends living across the country proposing that me put me up during this artistic adventure.
But I never did it. I felt like I needed my space: my drawing board, my lamp, my giant pieces of bristol, my precious brushes and pens. There was all this gear that I just couldn't go lugging around. Comics tend to make you sedentary. Hence the cartoonist physique.
However, now, ten years later, I find myself kind of doing the cross country comics thing. I've been working on this race car comic for the last couple of months in my sketchbook. It's small and portable, and I've taken it with me. I've drawn pages in my home Boston, Toronto, Maine, Chicago, Sacramento, Phoenix, and on the flights in between.
I don't know what Jack Kerouac would thing of this silly race car comic, but I'm having a great time.
