A veteran Artomatic artist asked me a few weeks ago if I had been "brashed" yet. I hadn't heard of this and knew nothing about what it might be. She explained to me that there is a poet who writes poems for the artists participating in Artomatic. It is a great honor to be Brashed. There is a fair amount of mystery surrounding her (or him?) and everyone is content to let it be so. When I went for my shift Saturday, there was my Brash poem. What an honor, indeed.
