And finally, everyone comes and exclaim: oh, what picture is already ready. No, I say, here you need to draw more than two thousand pieces. Man does not see this. But I see why. I am looking for perfection, and if I can not achieve it, I am discomforted. This is a hellish job. I write at an enormous speed: dozens of smears per second. I work in extraordinary ecstasy. Only in such a state, I manage to bring the work to the fact that it was my brand name, if not without a signature: it is a picture of Marchuk, and more draw, “- tells about his work Ivan Marchuk.
