Little did old Hieronymus know that he would wind up as a LA detective.

Gurney, you are a great artist. Don't loose yourself. Why publish things like this video? Why so many guaches from nature without any expression? Return to the contrived pictures of dinossaurus, it's your real beach. Pardon Gurney, but you are going to the desert. I'd like to repeat: you are a master, but not in that way. Put the surrealism in the correct place...

Ronaldo, I publish a very wide range of things on the blog, including whatever I find interesting or intriguing. I realize that not every post will appeal to every reader. I will be doing more pictures of dinosaurs in coming weeks, but to fortify my imagination, I am observing living birds and other animals, and doing experiments in color based on the real world.

James, I very much appreciate the interesting odds and ends you post along with your artwork and advice to artists. I wouldn't have stumbled on this on my own, nor on many of the art and technology topics you challenge us with. To me, it's all part of who you are as an artist, and enlightening to other aspiring artists.

Speaking as a Known Surrealist, I wear a few other hats as well, and I really enjoy a large number of other diverse "isms." It's good to see what else is out there in addition to what drives me personally as an artist. A wider range of topics is good art food--a constant diet of hamburgers would get pretty boring. THANKS for opening more doors/possibilities.

Ronaldo, my experience with James' location work and videos is the opposite. It amazes how much life and expression he finds and is able to convey in his sketches and paintings from every day subjects. Seeing past what other people miss he captures the drama of the mundane. His ability to do this with consistency and sincerity, not having to rely on contrivance, is what draws me to his work and sets it apart from many others.

I would never judge what Mr. Guerney should put on HIS blog !

I like this blog for its variety. It's regularly updated, and even if it's the occasional article on somebody else's work, I've come across many gems as a consequence.

Always liked Bosch ... thanks for presenting this amusing little film, James.

P.S. ... I deleted my former comment because my phone automatically corrected the spelling of Bosch to Busch! I hate it when it does that, especially if I don't catch it in time.

This is delightful! Thanks.

Don't any of you characters read fiction anymore?

Paul Sullian, I thought the same thing! An LA detective (and a great show).

Ronaldo—You should broaden your horizons. Pick up a good Harry Bosch novel by Michael Connelly. You mignt start with "Lost Light."
