The Boat.Charcoal on Paper. 70 cm x 50 cm (approx). SOLD

Isolation is the gift; all the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And you’ll do it despite rejection and the worst odds and it will be better than anything you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods and the nights will flame with fire."

~ Roll the Dice by Charles Bukowski

Just wanted to drop a note on the illustrations in APJ's memoir - awesome! I just cannot wait to read the book and see more of your illustrations. How about a blog on how you got to do this awesome work? And BTW, did you like the book?
