July 4, 2017. Starting a new Boomrbill Journal site. Thanks to my son Chon for his help finding a more secure host. We’ll re-post, gradually, some of the priceless vintage material that I was able to save after the hack. Russians?
Some have asked, “Why bother? Doesn’t Facebook serve the purpose of ‘marking your Internet territory’ like all dogs do?” Considering the shelf-life of most creations, they’re probably right. Still, I persist.
I began my first graphical journal in 1971 on a wonderful trip through Europe and Israel and never stopped. There are photographs, but they seem to miss the context or story that goes with the images. So, I persist. This online version has always been a benign distillation of my paper sketchbook/journals which grants the viewer a welcome short-attention-span experience.
Mostly I benefit. Writing and drawing clarify my thoughts. Exposing them publicly invites greater nutrition from civil feedback. It’s the big campfire in the clouds and this is my talking stick. Thanks for stopping by.
