A tip of the hat to Kip for a Walt Kelly alert, even though I had already clipped and scanned this strip from yesterday's paper (yes, I still read a newsPAPER). I still read the comics, even though I shake my head at some of em, but Pearls Before Swine is definitely one of the better ones for comic content (yes, even his shaggy pig puns).
Mr. Pastis, if you ever 'toon in here, cheers to you. Long live Kelly!
My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
