This candid picture of John in action is a great freeze frame of his overall essence. He is a wonderful combination of energy, ideas, and constant motion. John always seems to be thinking about his next move while he is in the act of creating. While this makes him quite engaged and prolific in his artistic output, his best work comes from when he also reminds himself to take time to ‘measure twice and cut once.’ In other words, to be intentional with his process so he can identify moments he organically surprises himself in becoming a more skilled aesthetic thinker.
