This earnest, stalwart little messenger is on a mission to deliver an important declaration, namely:
“It is important to realize that importance is not important.”
He showed up in my sketchbook after a dream in which a helicopter dropped out of the sky and a uniformed man jumped out and urgently yelled to a group of us: “Importance is not important!”

I suspect this piece springs from my conviction that every human being is equal to every other; a conviction which causes me to dismiss hierarchies and authority.
