What was the breaking point? At what point did you decide to paint a basketball player? I began drawing in sketchbooks (with soft pencils) (and shading with my fingers) and copying images the same year I fell in young love with the Jordan/Rodman era-Bulls (1997ish). I was 13 or 14 at the time, I believe. These were never paintings, though a color pencil was used to determine Rodman’s...
Dr. Malcolm: The Jeff Goldlum Solo
John doesn’t subscribe to chaos, particularly what is has to say about his little science project. [[MORE]] John, you’ve heard of Chaos Theory? Non-linear equations? Strange attractions?

What are you reading right now? I am reading several books, well typescripts of books, right now. I can’t name them, but I am reading in my role as series editor for Indiana University Press’s Break Away Books. Many of them will become books pretty soon. Do you have a favorite library?
