My latest book, #6, entitled My Soul Quest contains Wisdom, Science, Humor, Cartoons, and portraits I’ve done. It began right here on this site and was converted into a book. This book is taken from the collection on this site, shorter, rethought and edited. It powerfully says who I am and what I stand for at this time in my life.

I like a plain old #2 pencil and add the shading as I see it on my portraits. The cartoons must be colorful, so I use pen and ink and watercolors. The portraits usually come out close to the real person… not always. I grew some hair before drawing the portrait above — some on top of my head and some more on my chin.
Here I am through the magical eye of my iPhone.
Here is a cartoon in color.
