"In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king." This was written by the Dutch Philosopher, Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus. Among humanists he has enjoyed the sobriquet "Prince of the Humanists". This remark goes right to my ideal; an artist's task is to be king of visual communication. An artist's work is one of research, seek and find. If the rest of mankind does not do this daily work, then we, as artists, have the responsibility of a king. I give you yesterday's drawing. I am educating myself; Like any teacher, I hope my viewers will follow along. My drawings are getting stronger, more precise, more clearly emotive, more intellectually satisfying, more engaging. I do not want to be king. I want to be among the many who communicate through the visual references I send their way.
