I've never taken any issue off the table for lack of suitability. Only for lack of imagination.
Garry Trudeau
For the most part, editors no longer view 'Doonesbury' as a rolling provocation, which is fine by me. It makes no sense to intentionally antagonize the very people on whose support you most depend.
Garry Trudeau
The strips about the military do seem to provoke moving and thoughtful responses. It's nice when the strip resonates, but more importantly, I need to know when I'm getting something wrong. The last thing I want to do is contribute to the suffering that wounded warriors already endure.
Garry Trudeau
I try not to second-guess editors; they're the clients, and I have no expectation that my strip is going to make it into every paper every day.
Garry Trudeau
Comic-strip artists generally have very modest ambitions. Day to day, we labor to fit together all these little moving parts - a character or two, a few lines of dialogue, framing, pacing, payoff - but we certainly don't think of them adding up over time to some larger portrait of our times.
Garry Trudeau
Well, it's a humor strip, so my first responsibility has always been to entertain the reader... But if, in addition, I can help move readers to thought and judgment about issues that concern me, so much the better.
Garry Trudeau
When you're young, with less on the line, it's easier to be audacious, to experiment. So I introduced the concerns of my generation - politics, sex, drugs, rock-and-roll, etc. - to the comics page, which for many years caused a rolling furor.
Garry Trudeau
I've been trying for some time to develop a lifestyle that doesn't require my presence.
Garry Trudeau
I found that not having a public profile was not hurting the work, and it freed me up to be the satirist I wanted to be.
Garry Trudeau
In any event, it's not exactly a secret to regular readers what my views on the war are.
Garry Trudeau
Because I was a diminutive, arty kid, I felt like a misfit in high school - but who doesn't?
Garry Trudeau
I think it's very dangerous for people who do anything that's public to venture on the Web and check out what people are saying about them. Yes, you're bound to find things that will delight you - but you also find things that will make you brood and feel bad about yourself. Why would you intentionally invite that into your life?
Garry Trudeau
Humor can inform and break down stigma, which is a huge issue in the military.
Garry Trudeau
The systematic dismantling of reproductive rights, much like the takedown of collective bargaining, has been taking place in full view.
Garry Trudeau
There's always been some concern that adult subject matter should be quarantined from a page that attracts children. Unlike late at night, when 'South Park' and 'Colbert' are on, impressionable minds are wide awake when the newspaper arrives.
Garry Trudeau
Comic strips are like a public utility. They're supposed to be there 365 days a year, and you're supposed to be able to hit the mark day after day.
Garry Trudeau
Satire is a form of social control, it's what you do. It's not personal. It's a job.
Garry Trudeau
I'm a pointillist, just working my tiny little piece of the canvas. I'm not so good at perspective.
Garry Trudeau
I'm still passionately interested in what my fellow humans are up to. For me, a day spent monitoring the passing parade is a day well-spent.
Garry Trudeau
Becoming the new feminine ideal requires just the right combination of insecurity, exercise, bulimia and surgery.
Garry Trudeau
Life is like a movie-since there aren't any commercial breaks, you have to get up and go to the bathroom in the middle of it.
