We've already seen digital picture frames pre-loaded with viruses; I'm not eager to have my refrigerator hacked or my alarm clock turned against me.
I love producing! It's so much fun to start with a blank canvas and create the picture you want to create and see it all come together.

Edmond de Goncourt
I've made 122 movies, and I daresay there's a picture of mine showing somewhere in the world every day.
When I was young, my favorite picture book was 'Fletcher and Zenobia,' written by Edward Gorey and illustrated by Victoria Chess. It's long out of print now, but its mix of macabre humor and 1960s psychedelia made it a perfect children's book for the times.
