I actually think that there is definitely a value in studying art at an art school. I myself went to an art school for five years and I have to confess that I don't use, right now, any of the things that I supposedly learned while I was there if I learned anything at all. I was very arrogant and I didn't feel that I should be studious because I felt that I knew more than they did.
I had a discussion with the editor of the magazine and he said that he wanted to have a painting that would represent mankind - mankind meaning, of course, a man and a woman. We discussed the whole thing, I did some sketches and we came up with the drawing that culminated in that painting. So it was a combined effort of myself and the editor.
