life without a rubber stamp
Sometimes, as an artist, it is hard to justify what I do.
What do you do all day? they say.
Here’s the answer: get a rubber stamp.
There is something very life affirming actually stamping something with it. THUMP on the ink pad, then THUMP on the paper. The Gestapo will now let you out of the country. The Post Office say everything is OK. You are confirming both the seriousness and the propriety of what you are doing and the sceptics and critics are mollified.
