It’s been an amazing year, full wonderful new people and amazing experiences, as well as a year of some special personal accomplishments. Its also been a year of tremendous sadness, the end of my marriage, my son moving away. Still, I feel blessed to have known and shared…LOVE. ANd not just with my former wife, whom without I would have never known the joy of being Dad to my son “lil nobody.” I LOVE you Tammy, I hope you find the happiness you deserve.
As an artist I’ve made my journey this year about spreading love, I’ve tried to walk that talk as a man, I’ve fallen short of the mark on more than one occasion. Nobody’s perfect. But I have been trying my best to be a better me. I promise to do better next year. GOD I LOVE YOU for your patience.
And New York, I LOVE You and Your Graffiti and Street Art Fans for LOVING your bastard son, a NOBODY like me. (and for those who don’t LOVE/like me, I LOVE you for even noticing this NOBODY exists – made you look, and i LOVE that). To My friends in NORWAY, you know i LOVE you! Marte, Kjetil, Bjorge, Nora, Wheat Queen, I LOVE YOU! Goslar! Portugal! Hamburg! Luxembourg! France! Switzerland! Amsterdam! Rotterdam! Holland! DAMN! Italy! Miami! England! Brazil! To anyone and everyone anywhere around the world who took the time, even a moment to share in my art… I LOVE YOU.
Being a Street Artist, being NOBODY, has made me feel like “somebody” very special. If, we’ve crossed paths, I hope I took the time to make you feel special too, to give a little of that back. I hope I brought something special to the streets. After all, most times I was an uninvited guest. That’s why I tried to leave gifts that made you think, TAKE/GRAB/COLLECT smile, laugh, discuss, or react in anyway that brings about dialogue or change. Hopefully discovering nobody was “here” was an unexpected surprise, a song that you could’t get out of your head, that you grew to LOVE.
And remember this “nobody” LOVES you, and LOVE NEVER FAILS!even though in my opinion Love Stories Suck… (but perhaps SOMEBODY will prove me wrong in 2012) Now that would be a Happy… um New Year!
