Success, What is it good for anyway?

What is success?  In 1994, before cell phones and before the adopted use of the internet, I graduated from art school, then like a hobo without a destination headed out into the world.

Behind The Polish

Portfolio websites are a facade of perfection showing only the successes of one’s career.  They show the work after all the work sweat and sometimes tears are done.  After any mistakes are polished out the work is hung in a digital “glass” box and preserved as if in a fountain of youth for artwork.   But […]
