Journal Entry 2010

Alive Johnny had this ability of enchanting people with his magic tail-wagging "smile", little did I know he could do it after his death.
A short time after "Johnny Jo" died, one of my readers (fellow artist Monica Dahl) contacted me asking for permission to use a " JJ photograph" as a reference.

The result is a wonderful sketch capturing his whole Johnny-ness; his big-hair - big eyes - big heart.
The result a beautiful timeless entry into Monica's very personal and precious traveling sketchbook.
The result a tear in my eye and a smile on my lips.
Here is one more example of Monica's delicate and beautiful pencil work.
