"As a little boy I used to visit my father and watched him working in Jiri Trnka Studio. I kept watching him one, two hours all the whole day long.Thus I saw the irigins of drawing – a good drawing. And I did also try it myself. One day Mr. Trnka came to me and asked whether I wanted to be a painter and whether I know what that means. It means to draw three hours a day, to draw everything and every day. That’s all you need to become a painter."
