b'\'I was not interested in advises (sic), how to work, nordid I copy anyone elses work. I was happy that I hadstartedandImstillcurioshowitdevelopsandgrows. All I draw comes from me, my own feelings.With my pictures, where you find different animals,human beings and all sorts of creatures, I feel happyand free. The subject "Love", "Men and Women" and"Nostalghia" are the most important to me. I candraw for hours, day after day. I have to care for mytwo sons, so I do my drawings whenever I can in mysparetime. It makes me happy and I hope it makesother people happy as well.Mehrdad Rashidi.'
