STEP# 3 : Explain to everyone why you would paint a giant toilet…

I’ve never considered myself funny… I’m more the sentimental who married a jokester. But every now and then a little humor will find its way into my work as I’m doing what I always do… addressing social issues. So the idea behind the toilet piece is actually quite simple and playful:

At the end of the day, we all sit on the same throne.

I posed the question “What is Honor?” during a Socratic Dialogue, and this piece was the result. Because, regardless of your title, wealth, skin color, or religion, we are all humbled by our own humanity.

So next time you start to think you are a little bit better, smarter, cooler, or more special than your neighbor… think of your throne and think again.
