About art, definitely. Honestly, I just don't have the "eye" for it. Some of this shit is just beyond me. I don't have an artistic bone in my body. But I've been emailing MarBear about my stick figure drawings. I have a good feeling about those.

See, just from looking at that piece, I would have never gleamed into it anything other than "some schmuck just superglued a rock onto a plane of glass and is going to get $5000 for it. I've got to get into this art shit myself."
