A 97-year-old working artist Bea Gold on writing, illustrating and publishing the book

Tim Fite used to be an artsy rapper. Now he’s just artsy. He doesn’t drink. He doesn’t do drugs. He makes compositionally complex, allegorical drawings that occasionally have a musical or performative component.

“…I had a mentor, an art teacher who was very influential in my life. And he’s the one who said to me, “You cannot call yourself an artist just because you’re going to school and doing things. You cannot call yourself an artist unless you always have something you are working on.” I was 15, and that really stuck with me up to these days.” — Bea Gold
