Remind me to not try to peek over your shoulder at what you're drawing.

Hi, Jim... the art is amazing.. progressively so in fact.
I have a question I was interested in your opinion on. One which has altered the course of my own artists eye....
Ahhh, Ok.
I am torn over the idea that the highest I could attain for with my own creative efforts is to create art that me as well as anyone who views it to something positve and perhaps uplifting to humanity... as opposed to creating even more disturbing images that seem to serve only to stir and give more strength and momentum to the negative weakening juggernaut of so much other art I see these days.
It's something I would love your perspective on especially since my talent for art has tended toward the morose. And I know you view terror as being sacred .

I guess my short question should've been.. Do you ever think creating creepy stuff was a bad motive to feed and bad for people who like viewing it?
I look at that magic quality of your work and can only wonder what it would be like if you created art that made me feel great instead of creeped out.

Gosh, I'm sorry Steve is creeped out. Some of Jim's work creeps me out a little, often it makes me laugh, and it always makes me think. Which makes me feel pretty great.

Really Nice.. I have an affinity for your work since I discovered it , maybe a few weeks ago. I am trying to remove figurative influence from my work at teh moment,a nd leave just teh abstract. but after I finish this one run of paintings under their current disiplin, I am gling to scrap that, and may find myself influenced by your work

you're art is so cool, i can't even believe it. it makes me want to eat s much acid, and flip through it. it's like alex greys' mind in the hands of robt. williams. but better! just saying.
