Sharon’s question for this month is "what do you call what you do".

I try to keep calling it Art with a straight face, really, but then I have to explain it, and it frequently feels as though I’d be better off just walking around with samples instead of business cards.

A while ago I read an article in Surface Design about a piece called "This is what I mean when I go like this."  Or maybe it was a book. But that is the phrase that has been going through my head, with variations…

This is what I do, when I go like this
This is what I mean when I say what I do
This is what I do
