My mentor..

Posted to Utterances




...was a well known Canadian Sculptor by the name of E.B. Cox . I worked and partied my ass off with him for 4 years in the 70's . He past away last year at the age of 93...told me to be a great artist you have to be a sex maniac and a thief...although he was one of the most original human beings I have ever known....I miss him. I spoke to him 2 days before he died and he still encouraged me to carry on...at the time I felt closer to death than him...
