Quotes edit

  • I had more flow as a designer. I could just drop down into the zone and stay there for hours. With cartooning, I'm constantly coming up for air, procrastinating, looking for reasons not to be doing it. I spend all day granting myself special dispensation, with 'creative process' as my cover story. Carpenters and deli countermen can't do that, so I think they may feel better about themselves at the end of the day.

  • Whether you think we belong in Iraq or not, we can't tune it out; we have to remain mindful of the terrible losses that individual soldiers are suffering in our name.
    • Reported in Kerry Soper, Garry Trudeau: Doonesbury and the Aesthetics of Satire (2008), p. 50.

Quotes about Trudeau edit

  • I, for one, think good political cartoons retain their value for decades. You can learn a lot from those old "Doonesbury" books.
