Eric is an original.  He is neither the starving artist nor the profiteering commercial artist.  "I am an extraordinary gentleman with an adventurer's heart, but I'm no bohemian!"  He is a man that has struggled throughout his career to achieve a high level of technical proficiency, pictorial intelligence and a sense of artistic legacy.
