"Amazingly, much of the best cartoon work was done early on in the medium's history. The early cartoonists, with no path before them, produced work of such sophistication, wit, and beauty that it increasingly seems to me that cartoon evolution is working backward.

Of course, some reporters took this as a personal challenge to intrude, but in general, my quiet life let me concentrate on my work." Bill Watterson
