'Having myself as a character in my recent comics seems like the least autobiographical aspect of them. I’ll use ‘Olivier Schrauwen’ as a ‘John Doe’; a fairly uninteresting, middle-aged everyman. The fact that he is a graphic novelist only adds to the randomness. The stories are diaristic in a more oblique, semi-spontaneous way. I try to accommodate autobio-elements by working chronologically, a page a day and changing the story at whim, according to the mood of the moment. So the stories are not so much autobiographical in a factual way rather then they’re attune with the way I feel, and what I’m occupied with at a certain time.'
