Walter Askin came to art via a series of subterfuges and coyote-like meanderings... He holds the world record for breaking the picture plane more than 293 times in a 24 hour period, and recently appeared on Hawaiian television between the most beautiful baby in Hawaii contest and some dancing elephants. He was a four-letter man in high school – screen printing, bronze sculpture, oil painting and figure drawing. (His school did not field a team in watercolor.)
