At 69, John Alexander has lived an extraordinary life. He sails the Caribbean with rocker Jimmy Buffett and counts among his other pals such Saturday Night Live luminaries as Lorne Michaels and Dan Aykroyd, his partner in a prosperous venture that serves vodka in skull-shaped drinking vessels. He spends his summers on Amagansett, Long Island, but for 35 years has occupied a SoHo loft in New York City, where he long ago established a reputation as a mesmerizing artist, one with a social conscience.

I don’t see how any artist can work alone. I am so happy working with people; I like working with a team, whether they’re assistants or interns. We are making something together, and I am proud of them, because they contribute so much. However, I am definitely the captain of the ship, the singer of the song, the leader of the pack, and it is my job to have a steady vision and open mind.
