    Goodness me, Mike. I’m sorry you had the need to make this video. I view your videos on your blog rather than YT so have not seen any of the comments but I got the gist. People are so very peculiar, aren’t they? If you don’t like something then move on. Nobody forces anyone to watch a YT video. (Actually my kids make me watch Minecraft videos but that’s not generally how such things work). I feel sad for the people who found the subject matter so provocative. How sad to find someone else’s creative expression so offensive. How sad to be so narrow minded. All that is going on in the world and they get their knickers in a knot over an art journal page involving some nudity – and I must say it was pretty tame nudity compared to drawings I’ve done in the past at life drawing class. I think you’ve handled the whole thing with good grace and tolerance and respect. Good for you.

    Dear Mike,
    First of all, I hate that you felt like you needed to make this vlog. It reminds me just how closed minded and ignorant some people will always be. Secondly, I love how you handled the situation with dignity and sort of a classy ‘f*ck you’ to the person who used the term ‘lame’. I replied to her comment under the original video because I thought it was, frankly, a stupid comment for her to leave. It just highlights her need to be negative. So keep up the good work. I am planning to travel to England from here in Atlanta, Ga next fall. I hope you will be at a store or an event somewhere that I can meet you. In the meantime, see you on YouTube!

        We have always stayed in London because for some reason, I feel like I belong there. It’s truly the only place in the world that I feel like I’m 100% alive. Next time we want to make a side trip up to Scotland and I know that Leeds will not be too far out of the way. I hear the north is beautiful and being quite the Downton Abbey super fan, I would love to see Yorkshire. My husband lives and works in Saudi Arabia, I haven’t seen him since October 2015, he will be home in about a month. We usually travel in the fall. I will make sure to find out if you are making any appearances when my travel itinerary is more concrete. I would love to buy you a cup of tea or a pint of beer!

        I will definitely do that! Also, if you can arrange to bring the guy in your focal point (sorry about the pun) photo, that would be awesome too hahaha
