    Actually, I can see that you have not seen enough of my artwork to make an informed statement. Especially since this article was written a little after 1997. I have evolved much since that time in my life-- besides-- the offoffoff blurb about me was no where's nearly as concise as I would have liked it. And about the "outsider" comment, yes, like most artistic geniouses in history, I have a mental illness. But, unfortunately a program for such people-- HAI (Hospital Audiences Incorporated) have decided that I'm not enough of an "outsider" for them. I have a friend that's an outsider artist. Maybe we can all get together and my friend and I can pick on you like you want to pick on me. Thanks!

    your art..

    I'm not going to beat around the bush.. frankly, I think your art leaves something to be desired. It's nothing special. Just what people term as "outsider art." So I think the person who sent you that message was just trying to be polite, maybe humouring you. If you don't believe me, then why is it that you only have one alledged supporting email?
