"The Roadrunner series tries to capture the essence of speed-of a boy moving in space at incredible velocity. Speed was once analyzed in a definitive manner by my daughter when she saw a self-portrait of Van Gogh for the first time: "Well," she said, "he must have been terribly fast to have bitten off his own ear!"
