Call me crazy


This book took 13 years and 5 days to create. In the pages to follow, expect to jump into a time capsule of sorts because I've compiled all the art I could find that I've made over the years.

I hope you're impressed and inspired because it certainly impressed and inspired me and I made it! Point is, it gives me great pleasure to give you the gift that art is.

call me crazy again

a retrospective coffee table art book from artacrobat

this book is dedicated to cassandra pryor, my mother...

march 2023

...and also to you!

I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to you. Every day, I wake up with a renewed sense of purpose, knowing that I get to create and share my gift of art with all of you. And with this book, we can mutually benefit from the beauty and inspiration that we put forth into the world. My deepest desire is that each and every one of you is able to live the life you truly want, to listen to yourself and decide what you want out of life. Living beyond doubt, and enjoying every aspect of your life exactly the way you want. Let's create a life that is truly fulfilling and a masterpiece of our own design. Thank you for being a part of this journey with me!

Ah, my dear friend, listen closely,

For I have a thought to share with thee,

Love, while a wondrous thing indeed,

Is not the only thing that we need.

For love alone cannot quell the strife,

That plagues our world, taints our life,

To heal and make things right, you see,

Love in action is what we need to be.

It's not enough to simply feel,

Our love must be expressed, for real,

In deeds, in words, in every way,

Love in action must hold sway.

So let us not be content with love alone,

But strive to make our love be shown,

In every action that we take,

Love in action, for our world's sake.
