I want to raise men who are strong, who are confident, who are not afraid to stand up for themselves or those who need standing up for. I want them to see that strength lies in their integrity and humility. I want them to see these things as good, and manly, and esteemed. I want them to be admired for being a man, not ashamed.
Some artists, they dream of a small studio: exposed brick walls and a view of the river in four equally glorious seasons … and hours of uninterrupted painting. I imagine it’s quiet there.

After all, it’s the living that’s making art out of me.
