The best cartoons expose some truths and, to quote the Bible, “the truth will set you free.”               -Kheven LaGrone

I’ve been censored too many times to mention. Mostly in the Bay Area.
-Keith Knight

When his art is released, the artist has no control over how a viewer may react.  Not everyone will understand what the artist is trying to say or do and in most cases an artist will displease as many people as he pleases.
–Nate Creekmore

DURING “LUTHER’S” VERY EARLY DAYS, HATE MAIL UNWITTINGLY SUPPLIED ME WITH A MOTHERLODE OF MATERIAL.   
–Brumsic Brandon

I don’t feel that I’m any more or less of an outcast than any other individual.  No one is without his or her quirks. Maintaining very much focused on the idea that we (people, groups, individuals) are all equally absurd.
-Nate Creekmore
