Last Wednesday, on my way to the Lone Pine Film Festival, I stopped off at Mohave County Cummunity College, outside Kingman, Arizona to talk to several art classes about making it as an artist. I made a vow in 1964 that if I ever discovered the secret to making it I would return home to give them the inside skinny. Here is the local newspaper's account of my efforts:

Not the best photo ever taken of me, but I dig that T-shirt. Got back in the trenches this morning:
I'm not a paranoid, deranged millionaire. Dammit, I'm a billionaire.
—Howard Hughes, an alleged quote, not sure I believe it.
