Artist= 1 Part Crazy, 2 parts Heart Sea

People want to entertain the insanely genius, eccentric, bizarre creative inspiration that artists live at least in fantasy.  Sherlock Holmes, Van Gogh tours or some bad rendering of Leonardo DaVinci on cable television for example, satisfy the banal attempt at living vicariously through the insanity of lone creative genius.  However, they do not want this on their doorstep or in their daughter's bed.  God forbid they actually have to deal with it in reality.  No, they just flip quickly to the "American Babylonian Idol" and get their dose of sublime mediocrity.  You see, all is a game.  The system, the money, the fame and on and on and on, and only an artist is willing to flip the card over to reveal the true chaos of it all.  That is why artists are 1 Part Crazy and 2 Parts Heart Sea.

Easter Monday 2008

Things got out of control for me at one point in my life and I had some kind of nervous breakdown.  Life's pressures will cave in and suck you in like a sinkhole.  Art has always been my anchor through life.  No matter where I go or what I do, I always have art to keep me inspired and moving forward through life's multiple circumstances.  This piece is special to me, because it was done at a time when I was going through some rough stuff.  Now I have this and other pieces to look back on with a reflective mind.

MasterDMT $ Earsnot 1997-98

I met Earsnot in 1997 when I was a student at SVA.  He stood out then as the smartest kid graffiti writer on the scene.  I knew he was headed for something great.  He came up to my studio and we did a couple quick jams on paper.  I still have this one.  He did the funny green man on the right.  He was clearly a genius and did not need any instruction about what to do and how to be culturally effective.  I'm glad to see he is so successful today.  He worked for it.
