Photographing the beauty of the process of … beauty.
“the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations (as shape, color, sound, etc.), a meaningful design or pattern, or something else (as a personality in which high spiritual qualities are manifest).”
First of all, a shout out to WORDPRESS for being VERY unavaiable when I tried to sign in on my computer. I not only GOOGLED customer service, but tried ‘HELP!’ and eventually tried the entire internet for a legit phone number to help me log in! I’ve been a customer for over 4 years!
Back to the artist.
Here he is – in all his glory, and all my pride – and I hope, artistic measure.
Artist with pencil. But, how amazing is it that I get to capture THAT in his hand?

Why? Why am I hangin’ hopes on this artist?
Because I love that he hates every picture except one. I love that he puts EVERY wrinkle into every bum – I love that he draws dots on ‘cartoon’ wonder bread. I love that he’s so freaking authentic that he makes my heart burst.
I love ‘cartoons’. I love animated shows. But, what Jim does? It’s an artistic rendering of life LIVED. And I love that. Love it.
