ARTIST STATEMENT


  • Can you help me write an

    artist statement?

     

                                        Here’s a book.

     

    Too long.

     

                                        Here’s the internet.

     

    Too confusing.

     

                                        Here’s an example.

     

    Nope.

     

                                        Here’s a hug?

     

    I needed that.

     

                                        Who cares about an

                                         artist statement?

     

    Some adults.

     

                                        Then, you better write

                                         for kids.

     

    I do.

     

                                        Glad I could help.
