Ted McKeever revient sur sa carrière après avoir annoncé son retrait du monde des comics :
[quote]As far back as I can remember, I’ve always drawn. My mom had come back from the drug store one day, when I was around five years old, and she bought me this “doodle pad,” filled with blank newsprint pages. I can still remember sitting by the window, and just drawing for days with absolutely no idea what I was doing. But I drew, and learned how to draw with each completed page, filling it with some awesomely funky stuff. I know, because I still have that pad — haven’t looked at it in about 20 years though. But the first drawing I ever did is in there.
Anyway, that’s how I’ve always approached drawing. I jump in, start on whatever it is I have in my head, and then basically, make it up as I go along. It’s kind of like cooking. You know, taste as you go along. Add a bit more salt, hold back on the butter — art’s the same for me. I have an idea of what I want to do; what I want the finished piece to look like. Then I jump in. Whether it gets there exactly, or not, depends on how focused I am on it. I’ve always maintained the same basic structure of how I work, along with the philosophy to never use another artist’s work to copy off of. I’ve always felt that if art doesn’t come out of your own head, then it’s not truly your own.
The bottom line is, I’m constantly developing a style that is, at its core, that five-year-old sitting at the window, scribbling down on blank sheets of newsprint, whatever comes into his head, trying to figure out how to make it look, and work best, with absolutely no idea why, or how. But to just do it.[/quote]
