    Then you probably already are, Joe. Although, in this case, the name of the post is also the name of the piece and, for once, it’s not a typo. The piece is called “I Want to be and Artist.” I assume the artist he his referring to is Jean Michel Basquiat as that is the dominant portrait on the vase. I highly recommend, if you are serious, that you watch the interview as he brilliantly discusses contemporary art.

    Silly me, Bill. I was thinking you needed to work on your grammar when I saw the post… ha ha
    I got the Basquiat reference right off the bat. I like his work a lot. I watched some of the video but didn’t have time to watch the whole thing. I will try and do that this weekend. Greyson seems like an interesting character. I dabble in photography, and have shown and won awards for my work but it’s nothing serious. Just a hobby, I guess.
