About This Artwork: Why is this called 215? Such a mystery. Shouldn't I leave it that way? Isn't it better that way? Or do you want to keep reading and find out the mundane reason I named it a number? Go ahead. Keep reading. You'll get there - and you'll be sorry that you found out about the boring answer.

This comes from an original sketch out of my Eye-book which has a very specific practice to it where every other day the time will wind up written on the drawing side of the page (rather than the written words side), so the sketch has a 2:15 PM above it and it was the working title that I never changed to anything else.

See how boring?
