Ask me anything   people make me cry because they're beautiful

A publisher once asked me who my target audience was. For some reason I blurted out, “I’m the Gagne sleeper of LSD.” He asked what that meant and I just shook my head. “I guess you’re not my target audience.” Of course, I didn’t know what the hell it meant either. I was on a lot of drugs in those days.
I do know that I liked the phonetics of the phrase. “I’m the gȯn-yā sleeper of L.S.D.” I repeated it to myself continually like a mantra, like a Beastie Boy’s lyric, for several moons. And for the record, the Beastie Boy voice was Adam Yauch. What Beastie Boy usually voices nonsensical mantras in your head?
And if you are unaware A gagne sleeper is a style of choke hold made popular by 1950s pro rasslin champ Verne Gagne. So, I guess this means my audience would be folks that enjoy old time ‘rasslin and psychedelics. Yep. This feels spiritually true. Thoughts? What feels spiritually true to you?

Part of the "Stones & Bones" Series

"I always varied pens but rarely drawing surfaces.
Out of paper for a short time, I turned to the two inert materials: stone and bone.
These inert materials seemed so ordinary!
This is not the case. They are still “living” materials: rough, bold, smooth, cracked, absorbent ….
Taming the variety of surfaces on a volume is a real adventure!

So I put aside the paper and canvas fabric to experiment with new drawing sensations.
Hand fits. The fingers feel every bumps. The spirit leaves guided by reliefs. The tip of the pen folds and unfolds. I even had the feeling that this matter thank me for taking care of.

Today, I look differently. I understand them differently.
This experience has enriched my own drawing skills.
The “inert and dead” matter, gave me some lessons.
The following images are the result.”
