„I love to draw homes because I love architecture. I love drawing buildings and all their angles and shingles and nailheads. I also love to draw homes because they naturally suggest narratives about the people (or what-have-you) who inhabit them. And I love to draw them because our own homes mean so much to us.“
„I liked the idea that someone as seemingly staid as a Japanese businessman might live in a house this strange and wonderful. And I liked the idea that a real Japanese businessman’s house might be, in its way, as fantastic as imaginary Odin’s house, Valhalla. This juxtaposition felt like it captured the soul of ‘Home’ to me.“
