Me and Dynamite Slim, Fifty Years Back

“Me and Dynamite Slim, Fifty Years Back”, 9×12″, graphite on drawing paper, 2018

Original in Sue’s Collection


A picture surfaced on the internet a while ago, and with the permission of the poster, I drew it. It is of a Good Friend and myself, probably in 1968, at a park we used to frequent. We are on a large sculpture/fountain known to locals as “The Globe”. My friend went on to, among other things, play guitar in a Bluesman’s band, where he picked up the nickname, “Dynamite Slim”.
