“I thought of the idea during one of my many trips abroad, it all started when I tried to communicate to a group of teenagers in Kabul, Afghanistan, I took out my pen and notepad and started drawing, soon I had a large crowd of curious onlookers asking questions to which I could draw a reply. I found that wherever I have traveled around the world I have been able to get an idea across by drawing a picture, it just made sense to me to put a collection of these drawings together so that others could do so too”
