As a former merchant sailor I always carried my sketchbook with me in many countries through out my worldly travels.. It enabled me to communicate and break the language barrier and make life long friends.. Quick sketch or speed sketches as I call it, was my favorite , mostly due to a very special event that occurred in Curaçao on my birthday. It’s a bit lengthy but if one so desires I would be inclined to write the details to anyone. Currently I am in the process of writing my autobiography. Taking over a year now so I will apologize now if I don’t return a response immediately. I have been a cartoonist most of my life and the last 30 years I’ve been doing some pastel work. Always enjoyable. Thank you for visiting!
