I'm so sick and tired of "me too" pics. Doing something original or seeing it is what gets my juices going.
*Very good* advice from a **Master**. I'm also tired ..."Ennui-ed out" by so much of the "follow the lead Lemming", in contemporary art, too.

Only one thing puzzles me ... the difference between "signature" and "style". To me, they are synonymous ... but I guess Gibson makes some distinction between them.

I've got to take time to read the whole interview.
