ABOVE’s SIGN LANGUAGE TOUR: THANK YOU!!

“I struggle to even begin to find the proper words that can do justice to how grateful I am for all the support during the enduring 7 months of travels and 26 countries visited during the Sign Language Tour. Trust and being able to link up with the global art community in foreign countries was not only necessary but critical for the progress of the Sign Language Tour. With the incredible support of artists, and fans alike sending numerous emails with invitations to come to their country to paint, as well as experience their city was what made this tour possible. I want to say THANK YOU to all of you that helped and supported this tour on many different levels. If I slept on your floor at your house, or painted a wall together in your city. Perhaps we simply had a friend in common or had a beer at a bar I want to say Thank You! It’s a sign of mediocrity when you demonstrate gratitude with moderation. This is why I write back and give my praise, and gratitude to all of You who helped assisted directly and indirectly.  Some might call it na├»ve? others Blind Faith? On being able to fly across the world and trust, stay, and live with fellow artists and people that have never yet met face to face. To reiterate the Sign Language Tour could not have be successful unless both Trust, and Faith were present by everyone that was involved. Perhaps hearing all of the stories during the Sign Language tour can give you confidence on your own personal challenges? Every dream or idea is able to be manifested as long as you never doubt yourself or your abilities.

Finally I must acknowledge three people who helped out immensely with the Sign Language Tour. The first two people are very familiar to you all. These people are Marc and Sara Schiller of Wooster! For the 4th year in a row they have been so generous and supportive to post these travelogues and artworks from around the world. The last person who deserves a huge Thank You is RIPO from Barcelona who traveled with me for 7 months doing his own creative artworks and unique tour. Please visit and see more of what he did here.

So that’s it that’s all from the Sign Language Tour! Feel free to check out the YouTube account setup for this tour to enjoy a Video from each of the 26 countries visited.
