This is a nice Harley Davidson soft tail on the street in Santiago, Chile.
Tim Campion is travelng around South America on a BMW motorcycle and this picture is one of many fabulous photos on his trip blog. Tim writes that this shot captures two American "icons." One is obvious. Do you see the other?

Right Whale, Color

Here is a color version of the Right Whale sketch. I drew the sketch with pencil and marking pens and colored it in on Microsoft Paint.
Recently a Northern Right Whale and her calf was spotted in our inland waterways, the first such sightings in over 30 years! Posted by Picasa

(Click on pic for larger image)
I did this cartoon after our saxophonist left the band, somewhere around 1990, I think....!
Left to right:
Dicky Neely, Michael O'Connor, Marty Martinez, Antone Perez, Franz Schlievert.

I still play with Antone and Franz from time to time. Michael left for the Hill Country and has been playing with a lot of top name players. Don't know what happened to Marty. He left town some years ago to play with funky earth music band in Houston and I haven't heard from him since. Posted by Picasa
