HOMAGE TO JON STEWART

Jon StewartJon Stewart has been an enormous influence on me, my art, my work, and my entire perspective on life.

Far beyond being an entertainer, he is a teacher and a philosopher. He inspired me beyond words as I was waking up to the world around me, and he opened my eyes to news, information, ideas & perspectives which nobody else was brave enough or smart enough (or visible enough) to say: truly one of the most important educators of our time.

I am excited to see where he goes in the future, and I am also excited for a new wave of talent to be bold enough and brave enough to continue in his footsteps.
