A Crime of Passion


Above is Diane Launier, proprietress and co-curator of Galerie Arludik and me, in front of a broken window where my little one man show will open this Thursday evening in Paris. She is very upset because sometime in the wee hours of the parisian night, someone smashed the window of the gallery and made off with only one thing, a copy of my new book, A Sketchy Past
I'm not making this up! 
Naturally, she was very unhappy about it. 

Naturally, I wasn't.

  1. i wonder if the criminal thought the title "a sketchy past" meant it was a book about learning how to be better at crime? only to later realize it was an art book!

  10. Diane is such a good sport for posing for that photo! :) Must be quite a nice thing to know that your book was the only thing they wanted when they could've taken a load of stuff too!

  11. The thing is that the thief couldn't have his precious little sketch in his 'stolen' book! XD

    Thanks for the 'brother of Scrat sketch' you draw in mine at Artludik. ;D

  13. The thief didn't take an ORIGINAL?? I'm assuming the book was the only thing within arm's reach. You know you've made it when people are stealing your art. Congrats!
