It was pointed out by Frits (in the kindest possible way) that my previous post HAD been previously posted some time ago, so again my apologies for that. I have posted so much stuff over such a long period of time that I'm completely befuddled on what to post next. But I will make an effort to pull up some new stuff, so stay tooned. I'm still having technical troubles with this site and I think you might too if you're trying to leave comments (though for some weird reason spammers are getting through jes' fine). I'll keep trying to get it all fixed, sooner or later. Long Live Kelly!
I have the hardest time getting on board this site to blog anything. But I think I'm on here again and I don't think I've posted this 1960s promotional booklet before. If I have, sorry, but I'm trying to get back on the Pogo train even as I keep getting derailed. These scans are by Mark Dillon that I distilled down to 4 per page.
These days, the state of the United States is somewhat in turmoil, due to leadership issues, starting at the top and bleeding on down.
Kelly was universal and timeless in his assessment of politics. Read this Song of the Mole closely, and all the while keeping Mr. 45 in mind. It's kind of eerie how prescient Kelly was and eerie how more things change, things stay the same . . . or regress . . . or something.
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.
