"I find Howard ['s art] intriguing . . . he successfully presents a vision of art that is mystical and yet shaped by disciplined logic. It's also quite an achievement to master the styles of other artists . . . to the extent that the "quotes" are clear, and yet combine and adjust them so that they contribute to a signature style of his own that is entirely original. His work derives inspiration from the work of earlier artists without seeming derivative. That's an amazingly fine line to walk, but he gives the appearance of being able to do so effortlessly."
-- Adam Fulford, CEO Fulford Enterprises, Tokyo
