The Green Man Teaches Art in Prison

Men! Find the artist within, especially if you are under court supervision! It’s called sublimation and it is part of civilization. I know you think you are tough guys but where life is nasty brutish and short you won’t last a minute!

When drawing the naked female, behave yourself, and don’t worry about breasts. They are not circles, anyway, they are fatty triangles and just one more cancer risk made for feeding babies.

If you are one of those artists that gets the Line right the first time, knock yourself out: but most of us are like the British artist David Hockney. We can’t draw and must Find the Form using girlie swirly lines like my Mom did when she would draw us kids!

Art ain’t knowin’ how to draw! It’s your Daemon! It’s your Wound! Let it Bleed!
