Jeremy Vandermeijinterviewed Marc as the first installment in the Origin Interviews on the Come Up to My Room blog. The Origin Interviews are an extension of the 2009 panel discussion The Origin of the Designer.
As generous as Marc’s creative output in the world is, he can be reclusive as to his direct thoughts and opinions even on topics that are of great importance to him. So it is a treat to read gems like this:
Jeremy: What do you yearn for?
Marc: An anti-gravity belt and ecocities.
Jeremy: Are you master of your own destiny?
Marc: Actually, I think of myself more as an “emotional navigator and democratic council” of my own destiny, rather than a “master”.
Read the whole interview in which Marc talks about why he left architecture school to become a cartoonist, the state of production of his latest graphic novel, travelling to save money, and why social Darwinism is good for design.
