Well, Gee, Consider the source.

Is this the same Steve Forbes who was a super liberal,world citizen, jet-setter who died of A.I.D.S. ?

David Airey

Hi Lisa,

I'm glad you chose to air your grievances too, and thanks for reading the discussion on my blog. The vast majority of comments left made for an excellent debate — one I feel strongly about.

Kevin Benisvy

Of course customers love the idea of going shopping.... who doesn't? However, you can go shopping for a TV because it's OK for thousands of people to have the same exact TV. Design work is done to custom fit the client's needs and the work can't be handed off to another prospective customer when the initial customer says "no." If a customer has hired me and wants me to change something about my product, they can simply ask me and it will be done.

  • "I was just handed the most incredible magazine article that I think has ever been written about me. It is just fantastic and people are presenting me with copies of the magazine. Really beautifully written, really beautifully written and no one has ever put all the pieces together as nicely as you have. Thank you so much."

  • "I am glad you are a perfectionist- You have given us a world-class site that will be an asset to The Guide as we move forward and expand."
    - Matt Holmes, The Art Guide

  • "I found Lisa Mikulski to be just the right resource at the right time: focused, professional, with a great eye for color and design, and with very fast turnaround time for getting images up on the web -- an artist's best friend and there when you need her! She's got a really good command of the two worlds we as artists now inhabit: the technical issues of cyberspace in today's market, combined with bottom line issues of artistic judgement. I highly recommend her as a great resource for web design, artistic and gallery management."
