They had van gogh. We have gok wan.  
The real van gogh was a tiresome character, writing writing neatly. He liked to leave a trail of marks. 
Before he was good at painting he was good at drawing. He painted brown pictures most of his life 
and killed himself at 37 just when he had cracked it. 
His formula for success was complementary colours (blue/orange green/red etc) and making his 
brush strokes visible all across the surface which is what he had always done in his  drawings. dot 
dash dot dash squiggle is how he drew. 

van gogh was a genius and it shows.
