Subject: shameless plug

It's been awhile since I checked in with the fine folks at the DCML, but I
thought I'd stop by and plug my book.
I normally try to avoid such crass commercialism, but I thought someone here
might be interested in the material, and
since it's not going to get much (i.e. any) advertising, I felt that this
sort of stumping was the only way folks would hear about it.

It's called After Carl Barks: Painting Fine-Art Cartoons in Oils. I spent
about four years writing it, and 33 years researching it.

The book basically is a record of everything I know about Barks's paintings,
from craft to criticism, and it's about how Barks
heavily influenced my own work. There's a free preview on the website, so
check it out.

I don't reproduce any of Barks's paintings in the book - for copyright
reasons - so I assume
readers have access to the Barks painting books (of course, everyone has
access to images of the paintings from various websites online).

Obviously the book is intended for anyone who knows Barks's painting work

or who is interested in fine-art cartoons as a genre. The book does
reproduce much of my own work as I show examples of what
I learned from Barks and how I've done what Barks himself asked me to do:
build on his techniques and paint things that no one has
ever seen before.

So much work has been published about Barks's comic-book career, and so
little about his painting career, I thought a book like this
was needed... but as you can imagine, it's more a labor of love than
anything, since I've been painting as a hobby for more than three

Thanks, and I hope everyone has a great year!
