Frans Vischer
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Keep aiming for greater heights, but be grateful for what you have.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Walt Disney. I admire his attempts to combine art with mass appeal.

Q. What is your favorite occupation, when you’re not writing?

A. I spent many years in feature animation. I love bringing a character to life, to put myself inside a character's head, and have them behave like real individuals.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A.

Abraham Lincoln. I would ask Mr.Lincoln about keeping your convictions in the midst of great adversity.

Winston Churchill. Same as Mr.Lincoln.

Dr. Martin Luther King. Seeing thegood in people, their character, despite being surrounded by racism.

Michaelangelo. Creative freedom, making meaningfulart within the limitations of the church.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Waiting. I like to keep busy. I hate waiting for comments or approvals. I always have projects in the works, so on down-time I switch gears and jump onto something else.
