When I came into boxing, I brought it to the next level with adverts and doing pantomime and people just got jealous of me doing that.
If you’re not balanced, your mind’s not balanced… my fuse went.
Instead of using brushes all the time, try a palette knife to paint.
Some people like going to the pub; I enjoy going to the gym.
Strong line quality, composition and form are more crucial although even this is loosely done.
The colors I use may clash or vibrate against one another but this is done intentionally.
But when you actually go in the ring, it’s a very lonely and scary place. It’s just you and the other guy.
We’re not cameras, we’re artists.
While most students were trying to draw one beautiful finished piece, I would be in the background drawing dozens of studies at different angles to use later.
I wouldn’t mind getting emotionally involved with a woman.
The most important thing taught to my students is to not be so photo realist in what they depict.
Boxing is the toughest and loneliest sport in the world.
I usually use quick sketches that I accumulated from the figure drawing classes I once instructed.
And I want to say anything is possible. Comma. You know.
For example, I like using strong Greek and Roman Renaissance characters as part of my series.
Color harmony was thrown out years ago, as restrictive chains were broken forming my free style.
From my sketch files I’ll find a pose that shows the emotion behind a particular character’s story.
I ain’t got no right to judge someone.
I chose faces and figures as my subject matter simply due to the fact that the human form is already beautiful art.
I like going to the gym every day.
I usually have a title in mind before I start.
