One thing I finally need to address is the bio section on my website page (www.davidgluckart.com). In it, I say "David Gluck currently paints with a cybernetic right arm, which scientists confirm as the source of his powers." More than a few people have taken this as a serious statement, which I find hilarious. I have even had people look down at my hand when meeting me, expecting me to have an iron grip. Probably my favorite was when my friend overhead someone telling everyone how I faked having a cybernetic arm to curry sympathy in order to receive grants etc. Recently, I got the email below, with which I responded with the plot to the 6 Million Dollar Man.
"Dear Mr Gluck,
I'm a volunteer of Hubei Provincial Museum of China. One of your paintings "The Trapper" is displayed here.
From relevant introduction about the artist, we know you use "cybernetic right arm" to paint. We have no idea
How it works?Would you kindly tell us in a simple way? Hope we do not offend you!
Look forward to your reply,thank you very much!"
Sorry for the delayed reply. When I was an ace test-pilot my ship crashed, nearly killing me. Deciding that the Canadian health care system had the technology to rebuild me, the government decided to augment my arm with cybernetic parts which gave me superhuman strength and speed.
I have decided I might need to change my bio pic to this as a result of all the inquiries.
