To most people, art is a relaxing, expressive activity to be enjoyed in their free time, a luxury that they enjoy to soothe their spirit. Others use it to express a social injustice or a radical ideal to make an impact. For some professionals, it may be a great way to make a living doing something that they enjoy.

To the artist known as Q, it’s an obsession.

To be clear, Q is the first to admit that he can't draw even the simplest stick figure. He's never taken an art class to speak of. He can't paint, has never picked up a paint brush in his life actually, and as no idea how to blend watercolor, pastels, or acrylics.
