Comments
from the article "Andreas prefers not to explain everything (1995)":
Do you like to work with others?
Andreas: I prefer to work alone and hesitate to involve others to help me. On the other hand I do have my limits and it can be refreshing to work with the ideas of others. It has given me the opportunity to make things I could never have made by myself.
That's why I made Dérives, with stories that have scenarios of different collegues. If you write a scenario for yourself you like to omit things you don't like to draw. I for one don't like to draw crowds. An other scenarist can make you do it anyway an thus you develop as a draftsman.
Dérives contains a short story of Frédéric Bézian. He added an element to my work that I could never have done myself. With him I would like to do an album sometime.
In Dérives you use, as in all of your work, the most farfetched drawing techniques. Are you still looking for the most befitting technique or do you just like to experiment?
Andreas: I want to do as much different things as I can. I could never, like for example 'Morris', work my whole life in the same style. I also think different kinds of stories require different drawing techniques. It should correspond to the athmosphere.
from the article "Dérives and Fantalia (1995)":
It's also the time of Dérives. This album appeared only long after the stories were published in Métal Hurlant. How did that go?
Andreas: The prepublication in Métal Hurlant was interrupted after TouristeTouriste, the third story of Dérives after a scenario of my German friend Ferdinand Scholz. Later, when I was at Delcourt, he said to me: "He, we could publish those short stories you did for Métal." Then I added three more.
All scenarists of Dérives are you friends. Why did you ask exactly these people for a scenario?
Andreas: I wanted to step away from my hobbies for once. I realized that I was closed in in my own genre and avoided certain subjects for the simple reason I didn't like to draw them. That's why I asked them to write whatever they wanted. Unfortunately more than one person made it a typical Andreas story. But one or two - especially Frédéric Bézian - really made something I could never have written myself. That gave me the opportunity to use different techniques to serve the scenario...and sometimes the scenarist. Because the story of Antonio Cossu is a bit like Cossu, the story of Bézian is like Bézian, his drawing style even influenced me somewhat. The same holds for Gérard Goffaux.
