Everybody Gets One (EGO), It is a series of 27 five foot by one foot drawings of postage-stamped-sized reproductions of everyone else’s art--over 1100 images have been drawn thus far. All artists and artisans, from the famous to the obscure are represented by one piece. The images are gathered from books, postcards and magazines as well as through my requests for images from artists in different communities. There is one drawing for every letter in the alphabet (plus one for anonymous) thus the artists’ work is on the drawing with the first letter of his/her last (family) name.
