Who said you should never meet your heroes?
The finished piece is rather delightful and allows me to spiel forth on many of the topics i enjoy so much including my formulas and tactics for creation including philosophical and personal motivations. Cam remixed my words with fresh source material including hero cards, paper point collages, Grateful Dead music and inter-disciplinary artists – and allows enough time for me to get some legs under my stories and give props to my friends and heroes. Thanks for that.
