I stopped painting about 4 months ago and it wasn’t until now that I could bring myself to admit why. When I design, I have a purpose. I’m trying to communicate something, I’m trying to get someone’s attention, I’m trying to create something completely new. I’m not always successful in that, but I definitely try. When I painted, I didn’t have a purpose. I was simply aiming at achieving a visual masterpiece.
