Heatley's decision to write and draw stories from his life without the veil of privacy is a fairly daring one. The subject of Heatley's comics are what other writers and artists might shy away from or skirt around through their whole careers. Pretty ...more

“Gay men should not adopt the sophomoric model of heterosexual dating; gay men should always have sex first.”
John Rechy

Thomas Pynchon
“Perhaps history this century, thought Eigenvalue, is rippled with gathers in its fabric such that if we are situated, as Stencil seemed to be, at the bottom of a fold, it's impossible to determine warp, woof, or pattern anywhere else. By virtue, however, of existing in one gather it is assumed there are others, compartmented off into sinuous cycles each of which had come to assume greater importance than the weave itself and destroy any continuity. Thus it is that we are charmed by the funny-looking automobiles of the '30's, the curious fashions of the '20's, the particular moral habits of our grandparents. We produce and attend musical comedies about them and are conned into a false memory, a phony nostalgia about what they were. We are accordingly lost to any sense of continuous tradition. Perhaps if we lived on a crest, things would be different. We could at least see.”
Thomas Pynchon, V.

Andy Warhol
“Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.”
Andy Warhol

Doris Lessing
“It was all wrong, ugly, unhappy and coloured with cynicism, but nothing was tragic, there were no moments that could change anything or anybody. From time to time the emotional lightning flashed and showed a landscape of private misery, and then — we went on dancing.”
Doris Lessing
