Jeff Swanson writes, "... I'd ... like to see "Barnyard Trouble." He read about it in the interview linked to in the posting SNAKE EATS OWN TAIL, you see, and naturally he was curious.
If Jeff owns a copy of THE BOOK OF JIM he may be slightly disappointed to discover that he has seen it before, but can anything dampen the frisson he must feel at the knowledge that this picture - now lost- was the first charcoal picture I ever made that did what I wanted it to do? Eh?
Way back in 1977 it was, when I was 26 years old and living in a jasmine-wreathed shack in Santa Barbara, eating from dumpsters, fishing from the pier, swimming with the corbena and generally living like a king.
