Congratulations You’ve Been Selected To Win Another Day On Planet Earth was made possible by hundreds of friends on Kickstarter and 350 copies were self-published and sold in 2012. Now, in 2013, after one year of reflection, I’ve chosen to stop printing it forever, recycle the remaining copies and UNLEASH this book online “Name Your Price” with the option to download for free.
These selected 400 drawings out of a series of 1000 reflect very well who I was after leaving college to focus on art full time: excited, biting, confident, playful, and most importantly, critical of myself and others.
In retrospect I believe some of this work is too arrogant to pass off as my current attitude toward communicating. Hubris limits possibilities for both of us and what I used to consider positive “tough love” feels oppressive. Now I believe the self-critique that makes moments new will arrive without being explicit. I’m excited to continue to practice sharing awareness checks and challenging assumptions in my work without being an ass.
Thank you for joining me as my work matures. I hope this book can be a learning experience for you as it has for me, and I stand proudly next to who I was, excited for where I’m going.
Every download and any donation is so appreciated. Thank you & enjoy!
