Being a genius is not so easy. I always have to try and come up with something new. Take the latest technique I am beginning to work on for example. There was a class in marbleizing paper that I read about. Right then and there, this thought popped into my head. Could I do a drawing, so that only the face was marlbled? So I actually had to take the course. Then I recently tried out my theory and man was I right. I think I may have invented something. I know once tattoo artists start to see this on the interweb, then they will be actually doing it to real human people. When you see people with marble tattoos on their face, remember it was because of me.

World famous photographer, Craig Cutler, happens to be my friend. Recently he took a photo of me in Manhattan at night after we had dinner. The other day he told me that the photograph is now on his portfolio website in his Leica journal section. Early in my life, I spent a few years as a male model in NYC. The Times Square giant billboards of me started to get a bit embarrassing so I quit. Craig told me to not let the fact that he put me on his site, go to me head. Obviously it has because I'm telling everyone about it. http://craigcutler.com/

When Yun and I were in Myanmar, we hung out with our friend, Perrie Briskin. Recently she was in town and came to visit us. She gave me a whole bunch of these drawings as a gift. In Myanmar there are tons of little kids who go around selling post cards to the tourists in order to make money. One day Perrie spotted a little boy selling these drawings. He told her he wanted to make his own hand drawn post cards. She was impressed by his entrepreneurial spirit. Perrie thought I would love to have them which I do. I've got about 20 of them. They just held their first real election and Perrie was there to witness history. Hopefully this little artist will grow up in a freer country where he will be able to make a living with his talent.

This is my latest ceramic piece. It has been fired once. It is waiting to be fired a second time with a clear coat on it. I showed this picture to Yun and she asked me what the dark grey thing was on the plate. I was a bit surprised because I thought it was pretty clear. I told her it was the shadow from the floating macaroon. Then it became obvious to her. Sometimes when I do things, I am so close to it I can't really tell if what I do works or not. Is anyone else confused?
