David Apatoff’s blog post about Ink

Please go here and read David Apatoff’s short but simpleblog entry about Ink and Commitment.


Ink is the medium for artists who are prepared to stand by their actions. Ink reserves her special favors– as well as her frustrations– for those artists who understand the significance of commitment.

Ink is applied wet but leaves a fossil record of every decision or mistake the artist made. That record can be difficult to live with, but its finality transforms the psychology of the experience; artists who enjoy playing with the wetness of ink recognize they can’t escape the consequences of their actions when that ink dries.
