I love the unexpected email. I received a message from a man in Lebanon. The opening line:
"Your talent,intelegent,knowledge makes you a once in a live time legend."
Way to get my attention! The rest of the message was a gracious and humble request for a piece of me, something, anything, signed. How cool!
I sent a message back asking for confirmation of the mailing address and to find out where the impetus for this request was coming from. Turns out he's doing a project on culture and art. So, I'm sending him one of my new handpainted postal stickers, complete with autograph. Hope he likes it!
These are something I've been playing around with for a little while. Not to sell, but to give away.
Speaking of giving away things, last year I gave two pieces to Roger Steffens and his Bob Marley Ark-hives. He's included my work in the current issue of The Beat, Volume 27 No. 2 2008! I'm mentioned in the Forward and the article "Bob Marley: Art & Soul", which also has pictures of the pieces and of me! I'm published! I'm so honored to be included in this annual Bob Marley issue.
Unexpected generosity of spirit. Good deal.
