There are more people doing it; there are more people talking about it; there are more people noticing it. JH: I grew up in a house where fine art and comic book art were both appreciated-like Robert Crumb or Pogo. My dad bought me Mad Magazine when I was eight years old on summer vacation. Reading comics by great comic artists provided as much of an education for drawing as anything. VH: Do you think more people today believe they can make a living crafting than they did eight to 10 years ago?
My grandsons, though, always looked forward to crafting at Grandma's. CD: VH: Are you conscious of the community that you helped perpetuate just doing your job? Yes, when I look at my mail or meet people on the street, it makes me realize that, and it makes me feel good. It also makes me appreciative of my good fortune.

No, I'm not crafted out, though I discovered that I don't have all the time I thought I would have.
