"I asked the famously satiric draftsman Saul Steinberg if he was gifted. He said he was not, but that the appeal of many graphic works of art was the evident struggle of their creators with their obvious limitations. Put another way by me: we like some works by some artists who couldn’t do what Michelangelo could do, but who damn well made pictures anyway.
I asked many people more committed than I am to the making of pictures by hand when it was that their art gave them the most satisfaction. When it was framed and exhibited? When it was published or sold? When it was praised by loved ones or an important critic? When? Three of those I asked were my own daughters Edith and Nanette, and my son Mark. Others were world renowned.
All replied without hesitation that they were most at one with the universe when making a picture in perfect solitude. All the rest by comparison was annoying balderdash. I say that too.”
-Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Yesterday would have been Mr. Vonnegut’s 91st birthday. Thanks to a man who taught me more about life at a young age than my adolescent brain was probably ready to handle. He has helped me become a better person through his words and I’m still sad I never got to shake his hand, though I am honored to own some of his own artwork.
The impossibly friendly @canyonwebb gave me a truly generous & moving gift, this original issue Gonzo patch once belonging to Hunter Thompson himself. I don’t even know what to say, but I’ll wear it proudly.
