There’s no shortage of those stories of people who wanted to do something other than what they are doing, or did for the entire life, like writing a novel, learning to play an instrument, traveling, etc. So many things complicate life, preventing dreams from taking shape. Responsibilities, people and events all put the kibosh on passions. Subscribing to the simple philosophy of “just do it” seems almost terrifyingly simple, so brazen and lacking foresight. It’s as if people are happier if things are really complicated because that complication can help squelch the little voice in your head that reminds you that you once had dreams.

My friend Karin Jurick already mentioned on her blog that she spotted my work, along with another friend of mine, Neil Hollingsworth, in the November 2008 issue of Southwest Art Magazine.
I’m on the bottom right of the left page (the bubble gum machine). Neil’s work is the PB&J on the top left of the left page.
It’s kind of exciting to see your work in a publication.
