I want to thank you again for the time, and quite a generous amount of time, you spent on the phone with me last Thursday. It really meant a lot to me that at your level of success, you would take such time to help me out as a beginner. The information you gave me about finishing steel was very helpful. You also gave me the encouragement to just experiment and let the metal tell me how it's working. It's obvious to me that not only are you a fantastic artist, but a very generous, kind, and caring soul. You took the time to caution me about health risks involved with metal sculpting and provided me details of how to be preventive and safe. You even shared your knowledge of some other subjects that affect each and every one of us on this earth, and this information was both important and enlightening.
Thank you, Zak, for a wonderful workshop! I especially liked your stories from your experiences, the spiritual
reflections and advice, and the gentle encouragement which we artists crave to hear follow your heart, be
true to yourself, etc. Seeing a successful artist connect art with spirtuality reconfirms my belief that artists
have a special responsibility and are healers in a sense.
I went to the most amazing seminar/workshop yesterday by Zak Zaikine. I had originally missed
the one seminar I desperately wanted to go to, "Selling Your Art and Not Your Soul" (sounds apt, eh?), but after some
correspondence with him in email he invited me to come to this seminar on publishing your own book that touched on many
of the same subjects. I'm still floored at his generosity, both in inviting me to come to a $90 seminar for free and for selling
me the tapes to the seminar I had truly wanted to go to at a discounted price. It's just dumbfounding, because one very
rarely sees, much less expects, such generosity these days. Any days. I'm babbling, now, aren't I? He even had a real publisher
there to talk with us about the business and take questions for a goodly long time!
