Art, Art, and Artistry : Reflections, Suggestions, and Mad Critiques
The collected columns on the artist and the creative process drawn from a lifetime of critical observation, critical self-observation, and artistic creativity. Quote from author: "A trained artist is trained to create what the public wants in order to make a living; a true and natural artist creates what the public needs, in order to make a needed impact." This book is what the public, and particularly the trained artist, needs to hear. A true and natural artist will be glad to find there is a kindred spirit in the world.

About Numi Who?
The author has spent a lifetime of free creativity in several mediums (writing, music, virtual world-building, photography, and graphics) that exhibit utter originality (he is free from academic dogma, trends, and fashions), bold innovation (he has no urge (or need) to mimic or copy); and in quiet, peaceful obscurity behind a creative "Do Not Disturb" sign (he is not beholden to the public or critics (he knows better than both), he does not create for approval or acceptance, but what is needed; and he is not dependent on his art for income. "I am not an artistic whore." - Author.
