Recently someone asked if i meant to put a line through my signature, so
i figured i'd address this question for my next blog entry. The short
answer is yes i did......i do. First of all it might help to know that i have a
tendency to be a bit of a symbolic or as my friend Dan says "cryptic" thinker, some might say supersticious
but that word sounds too O.C.D for my liking so we'll go with symbolic or cryptic
for now. If you have ever looked up close into one of my paintings
you've probably noticed many symbolic gestures or references to things, and i do this in an attempt to give
the viewer a clue into what i'm trying to convey without flat out saying
it. i also believe self interpretation is better than saying " this is
what i meant, so you have to come to that conclusion as well.'' after all, art is subjective. You
might have also noticed words or phrases that get scribbled out, often
that's me writing something personal then crossing it out for personal satisfaction- a bit of minor self therapy perhaps. So why the line in the signature? Well here's my "cryptic" answer- the line through the name is just a personal reminder that no matter how others may see me or how many achievements i might gain, we are all one in the same. i.e- NOBODY'S FAMOUS.
P.S. yes i realize that my 'i's' are all in the lowercase, but we'll address that at a later time.
