hehehehehehee..... bewbiez, :D let me explain.

I happened upon an art column the other day:
"WHY ARE YOU AN ARTIST!?" it asked (oh, so subtly) "WHAT MAKES YOU AN ARTIST? DESCRIBE WHY YOU ARE AN ARTIST IN A PICTURE!" It practically screamed.
The replies were as predictably sincere as they were terrible; a young girl flying away on a winged wolf, a man pulling his chest open to reveal a cascade of hearts and roses, sketches of misunderstood artists putting bricks into the foundation of a great civilization...
You get the idea.

I'm sure that some of these people mean what they say, but I thought about it and in encapsulating myself as an artist I came up with the above. My process... My passions.

I don't do art in order to forward mankind's aspirations and I don't do it to bear my soul...
It's a compulsion, an addiction, a personal pleasure. An activity as self-gratifying (and occasionally as messy) as masturbation.
A guilty pleasure, I could as soon stop eating as I could stop sketching.
But I have no illusions about what I do. It's not high art, and nobody will unearth my pieces after the fall of Western Civilization and consider them as aesthetically representative of our strange age.
It is just this, only impassioned instances as fleeting and as guilty as the enjoyment of breasts without their owner's consent or acknowledgment. What you see above is a shameful self portrait, a meta-narrative, a glimpse of my happiest moments all rolled into one.

I wouldn't have it any other way.

My friends and ex-girlfriend keep asking me why I'm being so obsessive about learning to make art, especially art that involves naked females. I keep telling them I want to become a "boobie artist", a title I coined for it's sheer simplicity and ease of concept communication. It's not about the money (although getting paid to do something I love would be awfully nice), it's not about the fame (like I'm going to get famous? right...), it's not even really about the titillation. It's about doing what you have a great passion for.

Thanks for the imagery, I can honestly say I know how you feel. :)
