Were you e’er interested in forcing and art?

February 24, 2010

Bloglines just presented me with this rather spectacular text.
It’s an interview with me that obviously must have been put through some sort of translator. And the result is a fabulously comical article that I’ve copied and pasted below.

There are wonderful phrases such as “Gordon Browness’s boiling mandibles,” whatever that might be (Sounds like he might be taking the bullying too far!). And I’m talking about “Cameron’s Brobdingnagin balls of cheeks”
Apparently when I studied journalism, I spent my work experience “drawing instead than composing” and now I “sleep in the UK and force for The Times.”

It’s worth a read!
10 points to anyone who can figure out what I actually said!

Interview with Morten Morland

Times cartoonist Morten Morland on school desk graffitoes and Gordon Brownness ‘s boiling mandibles ‘.
Q: Were you e’er interested in forcing and art?
Ever interested in drawing, not art – I turned upwards in a village in Noreg and I cognized no-one who cognized anything about art. But I forced day in and day out at school and at place.
One day I buried my drawing tablet at school so I begined pulling on my desk. The whole desk land up as a great large circus with acrobats over it.
The cleanup crew left my drawings until the vacations when all the desks were given a rattlingly good clean. When I returned from vacation there was a note attached to my desk stating We ‘re really bad we shoulded take your drawings but we were sayed to shine all the desks ‘.
How maked you get into political cartooning?
I was analyse journalism and took upward a work arrangement on a concern paper – like a Norse version of the Financial Times. So their cartoonist travelled forth on vacation and I finished passing my whole work experience drawing, instead than composing.
Now you sleep in U.K. and force for The Times. Make you believe that sometimes as an foreigner you observe things that others deem allowed, a telling point?
Goodly I hold no pre-conceptions or historical neckties to any party in UK. My begetter was n’t bankrupted during the Thatcher epoch or anything like that. That Holds a good thing and a bad thing because if you hold that kinda background it can sometimes give you an border.
Are some politicians easier to force than others? Make you hold a front-runner?
I ‘m rattlingly savour Gordon Brown at the minute. There Holds a line locomoting from his temple downwardly to his cheek which relates to nada, but it borders his jawbones so beautifully.
Before on a great deal of artists pulled Brownness with a large mentum but really he holds n’t got a large mentum, that Holds not rather right. I consider most people hold now realised it Holds the jawbone country that Holds important. When he speaks there is this separate motility of the mandibles, they churn and boil. And there Holds the chin bead.
The chin pearl?
Ticker Brownness on TV and you ‘ll see that at the terminal of each sentence or word his mentum, his mandible but fall away, instead as though he is literally, automatically relinquishing the last words from his mouth.
And you stated Cameron holds mentum and cheeks and poshness ‘?
Yes, Cameron ‘s great because he holds this pointy mentum so these Brobdingnagian balls of cheeks. But he holds n’t got the upper crust large lips like Boris holds, Boris is lovely to make. I ne’er really savour making Blair , peradventure because by the clip I begined working in UK he was already an founded sketch fig.
Make you hold any favorite cartoonists whose work you wish or admire?
Swell the first cartooning book I saw was by Kevin Kallagher , the American cartoonist who forces as KAL in The Economist. Norse cartooning holds more links to American cartooning than Brits. I looked at that book and conceived oh yes, I see, this is how you make a sketch. ‘
My first sketches for The Times holded many stylistic links to KAL – large caputs and little bodies. But I realised rattlingly promptly that was n’t a popular thing to make here.
Large caputs and little bodies make n’t travel downwards goodly in the British cartooning cosmos?
Definitely not. I was ne’er sayed straightly, only someways conduct to understand this was not the maked thing. The attack was you ‘re not verily a cartoonist, you ‘re but a hombre who forces large caputs and conceives that Holds comical. ‘ It Holds but not the British tradition, I intend moving back to Gillray, it was n’t maked so either.
Morten Morland ‘s sketches seem in The Times every Monday.
