"Max Hopper - The strip was called Art in Shambles and it featured the regular misadventures of some retarded,
Forrest Gumpish version of Picasso and we can remember thanking God that it wasn’t yet another lame knock-off of The Far Side.
Created by local boys for the lowbrow art underground, we liked it a lot."

Oct. 2002 - Dimestore Publications, Ian Shires
"A fun read! More minimalist in it's art, and it uses that to it's advantage.
It's a wacky romp of the ins and outs of the art world. Interesting work!"
