Made my bi-annual stop at my friend’s George Pieper’s cartooning class to give a talk to his class about cartooning and caricature. Each time I take answers to a series of questions I give to the students and combine them into a drawing. Above is me and George and the drawing i drew based on the responses.

March 21st, 2014 – Caricatures in Lake Worth!

by on Mar.22, 2014, under Caricatures

20140322-184034.jpg

Was drawing at a wedding in Lake Worth Friday night. Here a few drawings from the night.

The City of Lake Worth, who ran the facility, really made the event a nightmare. I had written a rather long treatise about this here in a blog post, but list it due to an app crash. Have to get back to drawing and will return to this later. Advice is to stay away from City if Lake Worth parking places and other facilities. They’re setting up a nasty financial trap for visitors and tourists.

March 18th, 2014 – Book: ‘The Loner’ by J.A. Johnstone.

by on Mar.18, 2014, under Books

The Loner (The Loner, #1)The Loner by J.A. Johnstone

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Marking off another novel by the Johnstone clan. This one was lacking. there’s a good story. Though the writing is OK, there is a feeling this book was taken a part a few times and reassembled. There are a few areas where the action drags on and others where it’s written after the fact. Many of the chapter endings are contrived.

This is also one of the first of the nearly 20 Johnstone books I’ve read where the characters didn’t grab me. This one does sport the J.A. Johnstone name. Maybe that’s the difference.

This one works a bit too hard to establish a new series character. Frankly, this character isn’t all that far from so many others in the Johnstone corral. Wonder what’s determining the need by the Johnstone Clan for new character books? Besides feeding work to ghost writers and feeding the hunger for western novels.

Bottom line: I recommend this book.
