Boyce taught me that Taxidermy is an art, and as all art, it should be viewed from 8-10 feet. With that said, I have always focused on the artistic side of it. Stay away from my work with your flashlight! The expression, the movement, the balance, the flow, the design and composition.. The attention grabbing wow factor.. That is the art of it. A simple cookie cutter mount will never be talked about on the other side of a SCI show.. The wow pieces are what bring people with money to you.. of course there are the simple customers that just want a clean mount for a reasonable price and quick turnaround.. There are plenty of taxidermist in our industry for those customers. I will never be that taxidermist. I want the guy that wants something that no one else has. I love the artistry in Taxidermy. I would never make it as a cookie cutter production taxidermist. The mundaneness of it would kill me and suck my soul out..
