“Don't you dare!”

I think that reflects Donald's attitude on some days.

Donald Duck and I

I think this special bond between me and Donald Duck can't really be tied to any particular biographical detail about me. It's more a combination of the character's design and story that made him so appealing to me to work with.

Donald Duck, Homer Simpson

The advantage of my work reaching into the realm of contemporary art is that I can ask questions there that I probably wouldn't be allowed to in the industry. Like for example: does Donald Duck sometimes feel the same way about one of his nephews as Homer Simpson does about his son Bart?
This picture can't really be misunderstood, because I think it is obvious, but I'm including it anyway just to be on the safe side: This is satire, it is a satirical allusion to the physical father-son conflicts between Homer and Bart Simpson. And the interesting thing is that it feels – of course – wrong to see Donald doing this. Although I think Donald is perfectly capable of sometimes feeling like "attacking" one of his nephews, but never actually doing it.
