Saw this quote and thought I'd try and do a caricature of the guy who said it...The American poet, Robert Frost ( 1874-1963). I always get lost in poetry...which is good. I never try and translate.I think the same goes for all Art....Maybe its best left unquestioned. I remember at Art school being told something like: 'objects lose their aesthetic value when given a name.' I think poets use their words for their aesthetic value.

Was the interview for the job just a normal one? It wasn't a normal job after all. Did he keep anything hidden? Its always best to tell the truth in an interview. They will find out in the end. How did he handle the questions. I'm wondering how it all went....The Vatican: "You tell us why you think you should get the job, Francis."....Francis: "I used to be a bouncer!" The Vatican: "You got da job Franky."

I drew this work of art in my little sketch book this morning whilst waiting in a hospital corridor for somebody else's appointment. The only pen I had was running out of ink and I didn't for some reason have my normal 3 or 4 fountain pens with me..With little ink I had one chance of making this thing work!!.It was a small work and various people passed me in my seat trying to see what I was inspired me to draw mad faces with my pen...But these guys were the doctors and not the patients. All in a days insanity...
