David Mackintosh draws a lot when he's on his own. In fact, all the pictures in this book were done that way, except once when a boll weevil walked across his desk as if it owned the place. As a student he lived in a house with the bathtub in the backyard, and on summer nights slept with the windows open, listening to mosquitos on the ceiling.
