a modern whittler

to all of us "self-taughters"...i am always sucked in by the craft making of art...i like the physical act of smearing and rubbing, splashing and dabbing....this artist whittles...oh i'm sure the art galleries have a schmansy name for it...but i'm gonna call it like i see it...and i see it as current and timeless...someone getting their hands dirty and , in andy's case, even cut once in a while....when asks how he learned to work with wood his answer rings very dear to my heart "i ask furniture maker friends for advise..or i just bungle my way through" that's bullshit about training with "world acclaimed artist blah blah blah" or "i studied at the blah blah blah of the whittling academy"....nope...."i bungle my way through".....nice!
