'Mark Mulroney was born in a house. A house in Southern California with three rooms and not enough closet space. The bathroom was carpeted. His parents hated that carpet.

Mulroney attended Catholic school where he adopted a healthy dose of shame and regret. He would get in to trouble quite often for talking back and fighting so he would be put on restriction and end up spending a lot of time in his room, alone, drawing. Year after year, more fighting, more time in his room, alone, drawing. He got so used to being on restriction that he decided to make a career out of it and that is where he finds himself now, alone, in his room drawing.'
