Jim asked Sandy about the above artwork.
The original drawing (below) was done on a whim — I can't remember if there was a larger purpose for it or what might have been the inspiration. It seems to have been one of those ideas that kept growing as it appeared on the paper. I don't think I could have come up with something like this if it hadn't been very spontaneous.
I used the image as a Christmas card one year and asked my buddy Paul Tescher if I could juxtapose it with one of his poems. Somehow, the card caught the attention of someone at the library at Ohio University and low and behold, it became a poster (above) festooning one Alden's stairwells.
Jim asked Sandy about the above drawing
A fellow by the name of Rod Nippert gave me a call one day way back when, wanting me to come up with something to use for a new venture he was embarking on: raspberry farming. Seemed like my big chance—an opportunity to break into into the lucrative field of southeastern Ohio produce art.
Well, not really.
Rod didn't have much money to pay for the work, but for a month or two I was eating more red raspberries than you could imagine. He used the logo on his business cards and eventual had it blown up and put on the side of his pickup.
