A Thank You In Retrospect

"If you think you can’t do it… you’re right! YOU can’t!"

These words were framed and hung on the wall behind the desk of the art director for Good Housekeeping Magazine Bruce Danbrot. He looked this very green illustrator dead in the eye, pointed to the sign, and handed me my first assignment for the magazine. Decades later, there hasn’t been a day that’s gone by where I haven’t been confronted with seemingly unsolvable creative problems in the industry. Thanks, Bruce, or showing me the way!
