Compliments, by nature are things thrown at you without any previous preparation. When on the receiving end, one should be able to accept, embrace and contain them, as it as compliment are in fact the most sincere form of human gift.
Two days ago, after having posted on my moving encounter with Glen Baxter, I was presented with such a gift, for which I hold a I tremendous esteem. It came from one of my better admired contemporary illustrators: Paul Slater .
As Facebook wall is suffering from an ephemeral quality, I’ve decided to put this rare and precious trophy on my digital mantelpiece. Thank you Paul.
