Carved Linoleum Map of Paris This is making the rounds a lot lately. I spent some time reading through his website and taking a look a the rest of the work. It’s impressive. No wonder at 23 he was already awarded an ADC Silver Cube. However, what really caught my attention were a few lines at the very bottom of the about page which read:

I have arthritis in basically all of my joins but mainly my hands, and more so in my right hand, so being right handed is annoying, but the pain I get when carving at times drives me forward, I’m not going to stop doing this art I love, a lot of pain goes into each piece I work on but that just helps me to drive to finish it and not quit as I could easily do.

Keep it going.
