artist all my life. I bleed ink .and paint, too, but it clots faster than the ink. messy. I quit my day job this year to pursue the lofty idea that I will somehow live the rest of my yea-tirs as a fulltime artist. I just decided to become more involved in the Threadless community because I truly believe that we, as artists -- an entire different species from the other bipeds that roam the earth -- need to support one another, as do any other self-aware and successful groups of specialists. So here's to you fellow artisans .... Cheers!
