Steven Grant on Selling Out

"Selling out is creating a skinny, plain nebbish character who an entire generation seems to identify with because his superpowers don't change the fact that he's awash in home troubles, bullied at school and ineffectual with girls, and suddenly he's a swingin' handsome hunk with a cool motorcycle and supermodel girlfriends."

Professor Charles Goslin (1931 ? - 2007)

"What is familiar to us is reassuring, and ultimately boring. What is different about us is beautiful, stimulating, and wonderfully disturbing."

Professor Goslin was not only a great teacher, but also quite a character. I have always felt extremely fortunate to have been one of his students and I'll never forget his classes. I miss him already.

Hearing him speak again through reading his words (see links below) I realize that I can always afford to heed his advice...

I will post images of his work as I come across them
