Bill Sienkiewicz QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
After that I jumped, especially being in art school, to the illustrators.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
Again, I feel really fortunate to have so many guys who really are an inspiration.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
And I've never viewed comics as assignments for the client.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
And that, to me, is the main attraction to comics. It's an avenue to say what you want to say.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
And within the world that you've created, the physics of that world have to remain constant; they can't be amorphous and changing.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
But I'm aware of the fact that I'm working in a commercial venue where I'm producing something that I wouldn't normally be approaching the way I'm doing it.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
But if I really want to produce my own work and tell stories, then I will.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
But there's still an avenue for smaller comics and personal expression.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
But with comics you're reading and assimilating an image simultaneously, instead of just reading or watching the tube.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
Cartooning is an honorable thing.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
Comics are really my life blood in a lot of respects.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
Do the story in the way it really demands to be done, which may mean using several different styles or only one style; but it's still about respecting the story.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
Each generation builds on the stuff.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
Especially with Elektra, because I'm doing a lot of the covers for the new version of Elektra.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
For a while I felt very alone; sort of out there in the world of comics, especially here in the States.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
I didn't want to feel constrained, so I took on the Mutants.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
I feel very connected and fond of the Elektra character, very protective in some respects.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
I find that I'm interested in seeing in a way like a David Lynch aspect of it, where you take things that are presented in a very straightforward manner, in terms of realism and the lighting and everything else, but there's still a response that tends to be very creepy.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
I still love a lot of the guys who just paint.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
I want to say 90% of stuff out there is just crap that got made. The main point is that it got produced.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
I wanted to be complete, because I figured that, visually, there was an avenue to explore with painted stuff.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
I wanted to learn how to paint rather than just doing black-and-white work.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
I was lucky enough to be given books that weren't top sellers; books that were kind of under the radar.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
I'm also doing another Batman project, a Two-Face story which I think is one of the most interesting stories I've read in a long time.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
I've found even with myself that some of the directions, and my own innate sense of how I want to approach things has been, I don't want to say stymied.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
If somebody can inspire me, it feels really special.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
If you're going to establish a certain level of unreality than you have to deal with it.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
It's interesting, because in the corporate stuff there's a dichotomy there, depending on the creator. Even what, in essence, may be a very safe corporate approach, there is some stuff that is allowed to be pushed.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
It's odd because I don't really think that people that work in comics really feel like they're actually proprietors of the characters, but I do admit to having that sense with her.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
Kyle Baker's work is really funny, but it's also got a very clear vision.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
Like Godfather, you look at a movie like that, or something that James Gray has directed, a film with minimal or pin lighting as opposed to everything being lit bright and flat, where everything is evident.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
Nothing is really media driven or committee driven, so you can actually just produce something.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
One of the problems I have with a lot of movies these days is that everything is too well lit. In the world of digital creations there is a tendency to show too much.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
People who can pull you in and take you on a journey, as opposed to simply adding flash. Again, that feels very clinical, and I don't respond to that the way I used to.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
So cartooning, for me, is an honorable thing. It's pushing the envelope. It's the truth of something through exaggeration.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
So I look at a lot of stuff now that I did and some of it looks tame to me, but my interest in terms of what I want to say with it is a little different.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
So much of Jaws was amazing because the mind filled in what was missing.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
So there's kind of a simultaneous aspect to pushing the boundaries, and being very safe.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
So, when the special effects are at the service of the story and draw you into it, that is really the magic.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
Star Wars is more about the surface or how things are put together and constructed, as opposed to the story which drives it.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
That was a real learning element for me, because I realized that the more true you are to yourself, the more you will lose people.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
The story that Chris (Claremont) did with the demon bear, I was only going to be doing two or three issues of that. But it turned into quite a few.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
There is a whole generation of people who are going to see movies or watch TV who don't want to work.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
There were times when I've done advertising and different avenues, but comics, in a lot of respects, the level of integrity and personal point of view that you can bring to it, is much more at play than it is anywhere else in any other capacity; any other field of illustration.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
Things have changed quite a bit since the early '90s, you know with Image comics and comics becoming so popular for movies.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
To me, I always felt that Elektra was much more of a character that men would put their fantasies into. I felt there was a level of mystery to her.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
To me, that's one of the things that I love about doing this stuff. One day I can work on this piece in watercolor, and then work on something else on the computer, or work on something else that's a completely different approach.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
To me, the technique was almost irrelevant; it was what was coming across.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
Toasters was a really interesting experience for me because it did take a lot out of me. It was wonderful, certainly very liberating, and I loved it.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
What's interesting about Fellowship of the Rings is that so much of what was going on, like moving from one sequence to another when they were attacked by the cave troll, that gigantic creature was just amazing to me.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
Yeah, I jumped around a lot, partly because I had just sort of focused on one influence, Neal Adams, when I was growing up.
Quotation of Bill Sienkiewicz
You're telling the story, creating the sets, doing the lighting, the designing, and establishing the pace.
