Spines to the left of me, spines to the right. Here I am . . .stuck on cacti with you!

 June 8, 2024

Still studying cacti. Went out in the sideyard of my studio and drew a couple from real life, until the board heated up and I had to come in. Hot? Oh, yes,

Daily Scratchboard Whip Out:

"Prickly Pear Spines In Twilight"

The Big Hat Conundrum

"If everybody's wearing a big hat, ain't nobody wearing a big hat."

—Old Vaquero Saying

I am sometimes asked, "Where did you get your sense of Yuma?" I mean, "humor."

Well, I grew up reading this newspaper, The Mohave County Miner.

This is from the 1890s.

Love the editor joke. Speaking of trying to make art and make people laugh. . .

"In sports there's a winner, there's a loser. What I love about art is, it's not like that. It's about self-perfection. I love trying to make the best film you can. Get everyone together and just do your absolute best. If you can actualize that, that's the magic!"
—Richard Linklater, "The Hit Man" which premieres today on Netflix
