There have been plenty of instances where other artists took to the project and produced a series of pieces on their own and the cool part of it is to see how it takes on a new life with them. One recent example is when I last visited my Very Good Friend Kim in St. Louis. I'd been hounding her for years to consider doing some work for the project. She was gracious enough years ago to have worked on a piece I did for my 52 Weeks project [She did Week 36 here: ] and I hoped to have her do the same for the One Thousand Thousand project.
Kim and I went to high school together and we attended Visual & Performing Arts High School. We were taught by the same teacher, Mr. Perry, and we were friends since then. She's one of my favorite artists and she's one of my closest friends on top of that and I've known her daughter Isadora since she has been alive. Isadora ended up attending the same high school that Kim and I did and she was taught by the same teacher we were and now she's an artist too and is making her own new pieces for the project. Seeing this whole thing come to such an unexpectedly full circle has been heavy for me and I am seriously overjoyed to watch it unfold as it has.
