The albinoTree. What is it all about?
I have been asked many times, What is this albinoTree? Where can I see one for myself? What’s it all about Al G? And though I randomly choose the name, I figured it was about time I found out just what this moniker of mine meant. So instead of making some stuff up like, “Albino is my full first name” or “I like the symbolic weight of a tree” or “I named myself after a graphic I made bored at work one day”, I figured I ought to do some research…and lo and behold… I found out FAR more than I could ever have imagined or dreamed up on my own!
