New Niche Finder answers:

Frank William Abagnale, Jr. (born April 27, 1948) is an American security consultant known for his history as a former confidence trickster, check forger, impostor, and escape artist. He became notorious in the 1960s for passing $2.5 million worth of meticulously forged checks across 26 countries over the course of five years, beginning when he was 16 years old.In the process, he claimed to have assumed no fewer than eight separate identities, impersonating an airline pilot, a doctor, a Bureau of Prisons agent, and a lawyer. He escaped from police custody twice (once from a taxiing airliner and once from a U.S. Federal penitentiary), before he was 21 years old. Abagnale’s life story provided the inspiration for the feature film Catch Me If You Can, the upcoming Broadway musical Catch Me If You Can, and he elaborated on his life through his ghostwritten autobiography of the same name. He is currently a consultant and lecturer at the academy and field offices for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He also runs Abagnale & Associates, a financial fraud consultancy company.——————————-
Bank fraud. Abagnale’s first confidence trick was writing personal cheques on his own overdrawn account. This, however, would only work for a limited time before the bank demanded payment, so he moved on to opening other accounts in different banks, eventually creating new identities to sustain this charade. One of Abagnale’s famous tricks was to print his account number on blank deposit slips and add them to the stack of real blank slips in the bank. This meant that the deposits written on those slips by bank customers ended up going into his account rather than that of the legitimate customers.——– Using a security guard disguise he bought at a local costume shop, he put a sign over the box saying “out of service, place deposits with security guard on duty” and collected money that way. Later he disclosed how he could not believe this idea had actually worked, stating with some astonishment: “how can a drop box be out of service?”———————
Airline pilot.———-Pan American World Airways estimated that between the ages of 16 and 18, Frank Abagnale flew over 1,000,000 miles on over 250 flights and flew to 26 countries, at Pan Am’s expense, by deadheading. He was also able to stay at hotels for free during this time. Everything from food to lodging was billed to the airline.—–Teaching assistant ———He forged a Columbia University degree and taught sociology at Brigham Young University for a semester, working as a teaching assistant by the name of “Frank Adams”.
Doctor For almost a year he impersonated a chief resident pediatrician in a Georgia hospital under the alias Frank Conners. He chose this course after he was nearly arrested disembarking a flight in New Orleans. Afraid of possible capture, he retired temporarily to Georgia. When filling out a rental application he impulsively listed his occupation as “doctor”, fearing that the owner might check with Pan Am if he wrote “pilot”. After befriending a real doctor who lived in the same apartment complex, he agreed to act as resident supervisor of interns as a favor until the local hospital could find someone else to take the job. The position was not difficult for Abagnale because supervisors did no real medical work. He was nearly exposed though, when an infant almost died from oxygen deprivation (He had no idea what the nurse meant when she said there was a “blue baby”). He was able to fake his way through most of his duties by letting the interns handle the cases coming in during his late-night shift, setting broken bones and other such mundane tasks. When the hospital found a replacement he returned to the air, having lasted 11 months, leaving only after he’d come to the realization that his inability to respond to situations like the blue baby could put lives at risk.
Attorney——- Abagnale forged a Harvard University law transcript, passed the bar exam of Louisiana and got a job at the office of the state attorney general of Louisiana at the age of nineteen. This happened while he was posing as Pan Am First Officer “Robert Black.” He told a stewardess he had briefly dated that he was also a Harvard law student and she introduced him to a lawyer friend. Abagnale was told the bar needed more lawyers and was offered a chance to apply. After making a fake transcript from Harvard, he prepared himself for the compulsory exam. Despite failing twice, he claims to have passed the bar exam legitimately on the third try after 8 weeks of study, because “Louisiana at the time allowed you to take the Bar over and over as many times as you needed. It was really a matter of eliminating what you got wrong.”

John asks…

How does one discover their favorite artist?

I’m just now getting into art, and I’m sampling various artist’s pieces off of the internet and don’t live anywhere near a museum that has really nice artwork. I really like Salvadore Dali’s older works, and I have liked da Vinci since I was a kid.
Who is your favorite artist, and how did you discover him/her?
What kind of techniques do you recommend to obtain a grasp of what the artist is trying to convey?

New Niche Finder answers:

Mine is Cezanne because i studied one of his paintings for my art exam. I knew everything about it inside out

i don’t get your wording for the last part of the question.. Unless you mean like squinting (as a technique) for say, pointillism, so you can see it as a picture without just seeing the dots?
