thought du jour
several months ago i was attending a bookmaking/lettering workshop in orlando. of course, when i'm in orlando, i go shopping. this sign is displayed on the window next to the entrance of sam flax, an art supply store that i love to visit. hmmm..."artist seeks admirer". (actually, i think that you could substitute any occupation for the word "artist" and the same would be true. "policeman seeks admirer", "doctor seeks admirer", and so on.) no matter what we are called to do in life, i think that we always want to know that others appreciate our talents...that we're doing a great job and that our work makes a difference in someone's life. so, to all of you artists out there, i totally admire you!
