Blog / 2015 / Original or Special

January 19, 2015

I just published a book about originality, imitation, and why I don’t claim the copyright on my art, and it is available here. I talk a lot about these sorts of things on this blog, but also about portraiture. Specifically, I am interested in the specialness it confers on its subjects. You can hire me to paint or draw your portrait!
