"Art isn't something you buy," Ohno told News Zero. "It's something you make on your own." Which is a rather cool approach to not only art, but the meaning of creation itself.

People who are gifted like this, never cease to amaze me. The ability to look at cardboard—or a blank canvas, stone, whatever—and not only see something, but to bring that thing forth to show other people? That's just incredible to me, and I'm grateful for those who do share their visions. ^_^
