Will your first India trip figure in your work?
Yeah, sure it will.
What has caught your eye so far?
Everything, everywhere I turn. India is incredibly rich visually; much more than the west.
You shy away from crowds, and yet you met your fans here.
I’m a solitary person. But you have to be open to people, though it gets exhausting after a while. I accepted this because I wanted to see India. Meeting fans is a job, you have to do it once in a while.
Your favourite cartoons as a kid were?
Disney stuff—Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck. I was not interested in high culture till much later, when I was 19 or 20. That was when I discovered ‘Art’.
Any comic character you wish you’d created?
Why didn’t you tinker with the text at all in The Book of Genesis?
That was my intention. To be faithful to the text was the only purpose I could serve...
