I don't read or watch TV to get ideas. My work is basically sitting down at the drawing table and getting silly.
Gary Larson

Gary Larson

Gary Larson
You know those little snow globes that you shake up? I always thought my brain was sort of like that. You know, where you just give it a shake and watch what comes out and shake it again. It's like that.
Gary Larson
The message is not so much that the worms will inherit the Earth, but that all things play a role in nature, even the lowly worm.
Gary Larson
