Because it is, in a word, essential to my development as an artist to see things and to travel to places filled with art and history in their own right.
Other artists can stay at home all day and do great work. But I'm not they. I need to improve. SVP and this trip to England is just another part of this (admittedly long-going) process. If you're artist or not and/or a paleogeek, I hope to see you in England.
