One of the myths about being an artist is that you can create a work and sit back and reap the profits.

In reality you sit, and sit, and sit until you find yourself starving: a starving artist.

The truth is, if you hope to sell work, in addition to being an artist you have to become a marketer and sales person too. And you must hustle hard.

The body paint industry mourns the loss of probably the most painted man in history. He collected almost every body painter I know, and transformed our work like no other.

I was able to paint him twice. I've never spent more time painting one torso.

He was a BIG man, with a HUGE heart, but just a body too small for his soul.

You will be missed…
