Today’s session was the 12th and final of this semester’s course. It’s been very interesting, partly because of Mr. Vilppu’s knowledge and teaching finesse, partly because the models have all been fantastic.
But mostly because I, a 60 year old man who is really feeling his age, am inspired by how Glenn gets around so well for a man in his 80’s. I’ve been too scared to go on his various sketch tours of Europe and Japan; I wouldn’t be able to keep up, I have the ankles of an 80 year old man. But Glenn is in his 80’s and HE can do it, Hell, he’s the tour guide. And not only physically but artistically; as far as I can tell, he’s in full command of his mojo, art-wise.
I’m also inspired by how he works it, as a self-supporting artist, as an independent publisher, entrepreneur, salesman (of himself, his brand and his products), and networker.
Today’s model is Jonathan E. Beck. He has an Instagram handle, but he doesn’t do anything with it. He’s more of a Facebook kind of guy. You can find him there at https://www.facebook.com/jonathan.e.beck and https://www.facebook.com/profit.we
