I keep pinching myself and it keeps hurting. So I guess I'm still not dreaming. My artwork is hanging in the same room as Juan Logan and Chuck Close... and I'm still a living artist. That's a great honor. I never thought when I first painted 'I Wanna Kill Sam" back in 2005 that it would be at the Mint. The piece was made out of pure anger, frustration, helplessness, and... hope. Maybe that's why over the years so many people have related to this piece. Maybe we all want to kill Sam.
