Because my main medium is illustration, people often assume that I’m not into paintings. Wrong! I’ve tried painting in past but found that it’s just not my thing. Which means that I have an even higher regard for those who do it well. I’m also addicted to chocolate — not just regular chocolate, but quality chocolate. So when I first saw Will Cotton’s paintings at the Mary Boone Gallery in Chelsea, New York, in 2002, I immediately fell in love with them. They are beautiful, witty, funny and sexy. I want to drown in his enormous landscapes of chocolate, candies and cakes.
