It is impossible to find the right superlatives to describe his magisterial draughtmanship...Someone in California would say "WOW!"

Isn't it unfair, Jonzee, that one strives during a life time to unravel the complex and mysterious mechanism of expressing life through lines and some pupil of Buffy, The Vampire Slayer would come and "celebrate" that effort with a "Cool" or a meningless "So Inspiring"?

For conformation on the unfortunate humor, I too, am known for the "WOW" statement, plus I was bread in California. To come undone of such meaningless popular words like "Cool", "Amazing", "NICE" etc., and of the need for the most part, to say something to fill-in the silence is undoubtedly annoying to say the least.

In my opinion, I say this for it's my self-analysis, observation & experience, which comes from a need to prove, to fill-in a void or a place of inadequacy, perhaps even a lack of knowledge which causes the behavior to be some sort of groupie or to be considered. It’s some sort of a “needy” space. OR a superiority complex. I could be wrong. In time the person’s character is eventually conveyed.

Thank you for the opportunity to express my views in your forum.

Is it acceptable to say, what a joy, how delightful these superb drawings are?

Ilove these and so many of the other artists you have introduced here Oscar. Thanks.
