An artist needs the best studio instruction, the most rigorous demands, and the toughest criticism in order to tune up his sensibilities.

I first fell in love with Wayne in my 2D art class. How he sees information and beauty in the mundane things in life is both quirky and classic. I love the rythm, texture, color, and subject matter of his works.
