The Jig Is Up And By The Light of the Slivery Moon

December 30, 2018
   I've been rifling through old sketchbooks with this guy.

Budding Artist

   Weston Allen can't quite believe I've finished so many drawings in so many sketchbooks. He picked one sketchbook at random and opened it up and it had a quick sketch of a lonely road on it, and I slapped it down on the desk, above, and very quickly added some color, so he could see the process.

"Road to Shoshone"

   And, more importantly, hopefully he'll be inspired. None of my kids became artists so it's only fitting that I would nab one or two of their offspring and send them off on the holy road of artistic expression.

   Why would I do this? Because, no artist can fail. It is a success just to be one.

   Speaking of which:

"The Sliver of A Moon"

"El Jefe"

"Olive Underwater"
