Paint Should Be Your Tatoo
Had a killer interview with Matt Sesow a couple weekends back. The interview is forthcoming from Rock Heals (next week, God willing).
Matt and I used to work together before he quit the office life and holed himself up in his Adams Morgan studio where he works and lives. He estimates that he has painted over 10,000 paintings since he started in 1994. He's been a self-supporting artist for more than 5 years now.
One of my favorite statements from the evening was, "Kids who want to be artists shouldn't get tatoos. Paint should be their tatoo."
As the photo above proves, Matt practices what he preaches.
