I have great respect for that sort of grinder.

In some parts of the country a hoagie or a submarine sandwich is a grinder. Could this be related? Hmmm...

The reference here is to my brother, Mark. He's an artist who doesn't necessarily have the most talent, but he gets the most out of the ability he has; not all that pretty, just effective.

Artist's Description

They say a man is the word made flesh. So youd think hed at least have some say in it, wouldnt you? Take the dog boy. He says hes just a grinder -- not fast, merely steady, and we believe him. But if hes just a grinder, what on earth is he grinding? An axe, perhaps? They also say revenge is a dish best served cold, but I think a little foie gras and truffles would do quite nicely, thank you. Speaking of comestibles, maybe hes just grinding his teeth. Nah, thats more akin to gnashing. Comes with lots of weeping. Perhaps his nose then? Nope, hed need a grinder to do that. Aha! To the dog boy, a grinder may simply be one who puts his nose to the grindstone and keeps it there. Still, I think of it literally as a kind of millstone. Which, as we all know, must bear the weight of a heavy burden, much like the proverbial albatross worn round the neck. Life can be a grind, a slow, unrelenting slog that wears us down daily, but only if we let it. Time to lose the necktie, dog boy. -- D...

About Patrick Anthony Pierson

Patrick Anthony Pierson

Patrick Pierson: A TABLEAU OF DREAMS, NO LIMITS Born Patrijk Anton-Piers in 1953 on the outskirts of Utrecht in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the artist changed his name to Patrick Pierson in 1991 when he and his family immigrated to America. Initially represented and published by the Meisner Gallery in New York City, Patrick eventually settled in Palm Beach, Florida and established Fyshwerks Studio Gallery - a fine art studio, smithy, display gallery and publishing house that would become the birthplace for the creatures that were destined to inhabit the realm of Planet Zootopia.
