Blog / 2015 / Original or Special

January 19, 2015

I just published a book about originality, imitation, and why I don’t claim the copyright on my art, and it is available here. I talk a lot about these sorts of things on this blog, but also about portraiture. Specifically, I am interested in the specialness it confers on its subjects. You can hire me to paint or draw your portrait!

Maybe this post made you think of something you want to share with me? Or perhaps you have a question about my art? I’d love to hear from you!
