Inspiration can come from anything, when you are an artist you can be inspired by the smallest of situations or the grandest of opportunities.
For instance last week , a day before my born day, NOV 23, I was at a arthritis foundation of NY benefit auction. Now, I barely have enough for the studio let alone an auction. I was only at the $500 a plate function as a show of support. The foundation was giving an award to Earl Monroe for Sportsman of the Year.
I was at a table with The President and COO of HIP yeah that HIP, it was so funny here was this struggling kid in the room with Millionaires, the auction was not even close in my price range, at first I thought I was like going to get something, they had a Tiffany Necklace and the bidding was at $150, not expensive, but this was the beginning of the night, by the time everyone ate dinner, the Lobster was great, that paged looked like a phone book list it was full.
My table was full of people from HIP from the VP of Marketing to the VP of Sales it was cool, and all around the room you had very rich powerful people coming together to raise money for a great cause, Arthritis, my grandmother has it so I know it needs all of the support we can give it.
