Oscar,

You are such a hypocrite. You falsely accuse me of "Imitating" Searle, and then you imitate Pablo Picasso in your work. Let me quote for you the words of Charlie Mingus that you excerpted for me:

"The followers who supposed Charlie Parker's greatness lay in his melodic patterns copied them without realizing that if Parker played something as diatonic as a scale on his horn (do, re, me, fa, so, la, ti, do), he could play it millons of different ways with millions of different meanings.



These sham copies have distorted Bird's beauty and greatness. I wonder how he felt hearing copies of himself all over America? How would a great, original painter feel if he saw in every gallery copies of his paintings, copies that were being hailed as good along with his own. I think it would be difficult, if not impossible, to retain his sense of himself, and that such a situation can destroy a man's capacity to continue to create."


Sir, your hipocrisy knows no boundaries.

Picasso?!...Funny you say that, I was trying to draw like Juan Gris....Or Ward Kimball...Or was it Jacovitti?..Sorry, man, I can't remember. Now that I think about it, it could have been Ub Iwerks......

I like it. It does have a very Picasso-like feeling. Great work. I would love to see this on an album cover. I would buy it in a heartbeat!!
