NOTE: I tried uploading this to YouTube knowing that they would claim a copyright violation. I figured I'd give it a go anyway. Didn't work. Instead, I've uploaded it directly to my website.

This piece proves that I have no shame. I'm pretty sure I harnessed my inner Biggie Shorty for this one. I thought about strapping a canvas to my back to do this, but then decided to ditch the canvas and let me become the canvas. I ended up having a lot of fun with it. My son and I laughed so hard we cried at the final cut. I've been trying to take a quick vacation from the serious work that I usually do. My straight face throughout this video is a bit of a jab at myself and other artists who take themselves too seriously. Sometimes, you just need to have a little fun.
