The Lore of Meanwhile

Go forth and work!

Upon the misty isle of Sarasota, legend holds of a great sanctuary of the arts that was called Ringling College of Art and Design. It was upon the two thousand and thirteenth sun cycle, that the five ancients: Perez, Prochnow, Pratt, Barker and Thiel, from their high thrones, ordained that a selection numbering twelve or the most worthy minds of Ringling be brought before them to participate in a monumental production of epic proportion.

The twelve were commanded to inscribe pictorials of their darkest nightmares and brightest dreams upon scrolls of papyrus. Whence completed the papyrus would be bound together with the hair of a wildebeest, replicated using the machines of the holy ones, and distributed throughout the lands.

GO FORTH AND WORK! Bellowed the mighty thiel to his disciples. And so they labored, by sun and by moonlight. Much blood and sweat mingled with the pigments that poured from their tools. When the final page was done, copies were shipped throughout the land, bringing enlightenment and the word of Ringling to the masses.

Doodling for the refrigerator started it all. From the beginning the process of transforming ideas into drawings has struck me as magical. And, over the years, that magical process has had its way with me, leading me from stick figures to art.
