- "I was missing [drawing] interior pages so much because I haven't done any since last summer, so I sent an email to C.B. Cebulski asking him for a new, whole project. He proposed me "Star Wars!" Quick test: guess how long it took me to accept? I did two "Darth Vader" covers as well, recently, so I have come much closer to the Star Wars Universe lately."
