Some folks look at ART as a pathway to other things: a career, fame, money, as if the ART was only a means and not an end in itself. For ME, the ART is the WHY. It's why I do all of this. I make the art because I always make the art. If someone likes it and buys it later, neato! If not, I still made the art and I'm still happy with the art because it's a piece of me, a chunk of my me-ness, (which is fairly immaterial), made REAL---given an existence OUTSIDE of me. And that's a freaking strange thing---to have parts of me that are from me but no longer in me OUT THERE interacting with all of you. It's a strange thing---but I like it!!!
