'Tis I, stickin' it to the Man. Notice the posh surroundings and the gaggle of dancing girls bringing me endless cocktails. Living the dream, baby.

It is so good to see your face. I have often wondered what you really look like.

Shalom from Jerusalem


This is your best self-portrait ever!


It's so 'life-like'. :o)


"Endless cocktails", eh? That explains a lot.


Excellent! Thanks for the dose of reality. I appreciate it.

Plus, now I can toss aside my mental image of your disembodied hand and eye studiously focused on a floating easel or incline, and replace it with the real you in a beautifully functional form with a roll of toilet paper at the ready.

Hmmm... that dancing cowgirl in the background looks strangely familiar. She's evoking imaginings of a turkey baster. Kinky.

But, dude, do my eyes deceive me, or did you ditch the 'stash? I'm actually sad I noticed that, since it means I've been staring at your self caricature waaay too long. So very sad.

Je voudrais une vie.


Good eye. That photo is from a few monts ago....pre-'stache. It has it's own Social Security Number now.

The toilet paper is for watercolor clean-up and texture effects. Extra absorbant!

You recognized "Suburban Cowboys" which I posted not too long ago. Extra points!

So the 'stashe is a new force to be reckoned with. A little paint. A little facial fooling around with your sketchbook. I think it's got potential. Convention be damned! :)

Textures and Leaks! Of course! Some here have an unpure mind. Thanks for clarifying the purpose of the toilet paper for them.

Woot! Extra points! I'm catching up, boys. :)

Oh, come on already, John. I know darn well that you cropped the photo to hide the jacuzzi.


Yeah, I want to see the three scantily clad woman you keep there, right next to the well stocked bar.

Nice photo, John. It's nice to see what a real, working artist's digs look like.

I posted something similar years ago, and people swore the photo was doctored. Everybody knows, apparently, that I have a bevy* of slave-elves doing all the drawing for me.

(*for "harem" values of "bevy")

Right-handed? RIGHT-HANDED? Everybody knows that all the creative people are left-handed, thereby using their RIGHT minds.

Unless, of course, the photo is reversed, in which case I humbly apologize.


I don't think the picture could be flopped. That's clearly a right-handed mechanical pencil he's using. The pocket clasp would be facing away from him if it was left-handed. Unless it's a Japanese brand, which would surprise me.

Hey Dicentra

Right-handeders UNITE! It's about time you creative lefty types give us righties a f***in' break.


Not going to admit to the jacuzzi, bar and women, are we?


Okay...I have a team of dwarves that shine my shoes and a fine Latino women who advises me on stocks and bonds, but no......I DO NOT HAVE A JACUZZI.


I look forward to meet you, Allen and the fine Latino women (I am not so interested in the shoe shiners ;) on my next trip to the Land of Opportunity.

Don't let the "dream become a nightmare"...



Posh surroundings? Maybe not, but I'd still give anything to be able to draw like you do.

Well done indeed.

Tom Wms.:


Those of us who know you ... aw, never mind!
