The Most Interesting Person Project is a series of interviews in which each person interviewed gives the name of the person they think is the most interesting person they know. That person then gets interviewed, starting the cycle over.
Stu describes his art as being inspired by the covers of American pulp novels from the 1940’s and 1950’s. It plays with sexual humor. And, like most art, It tells a story. Story, in any medium captivates us. It keeps the mind going, moving from image to image or turning pages. Good art causes relentless forward progression.
