Seyran mostly gets the inspiration for his cartoons after midnight. He goes out in the fresh air, watches the stars in the sky and at thinks about what he should draw. Themes find him itself in the dark of the night. Then puts it on paper and goes to sleep.
“We always need humor and satire during our life. Our life is like humor and satire. Our joy looks like humor, our grief looks like satire. Humor and Satire!”
