Comments: A True Story About my UN-PC Brother

That's so cool to see some of your brother's work! Last time you mentioned him, I'd meant to ask if he had a website or anything and then I got distracted and forgot.

I tend to be easily distra...hey!...something shiny!

Talented indeed! I loved detailed work like that and have huge respect for people with the skill and patience to pull it off.

Oh, and I LOVED the Ramona books too. A while back I was in Portland and found myself on Klickitat Street. It was real! Whoah, was I ever excited.

Hilarious story about Johnson Twine. Not only is your brother talented, he's funny too!

Your blog always makes me smile and laugh.

Unbelievable talent, way kewl.

hmmm, but I am worried, did he notice the twine because he was wearing the visor? hmmmm.

Interesting family you have. The pseudonym word choice is intriguing, as your brother could have come up a variety of combinations: Dick Vine, Johnson Rope, Willie String, etc.

Oh, Beverly Cleary is da bomb! I loved Ramona, too - I got to revisit all of the books when I taught school a while back, and was still enchanted and entertained. Wasn't there one about a turnip or a rutabaga being dragged to school for show and tell on a rainy day while wearing a new dress?

Joshilyn, I've had the pleasure of knowing your brother for about 15 years now and he is indeed a very talented person. Back when he had a "real" job and his sculpting was just a hobby he did some work for a local hobby shop. The manager there told me that "somewhere on this planet are a lot of people with no talent because Bobby got all of their's."

I enjoy his work as much as I enjoy your's. Keep up the good job.

As always, you made me laugh so loud my cat even thinks I'm bonkers. Perhaps she's on to something....

Aaaaahhhhh, computer access. How delightful.

I have heard this story before and it STILL made me laugh in that I-can't-help-snorting way that's soooo attractive!

I'm so glad Maisy is OK. Stay ok, Maisy, you hear me? Good puppy.

Way cool figurine. Artistic talent like that is amazing to me. I wonder if the folks he works for knew the real story about his pseudonym. *laughing* Great (twisted) sense of humor.

Alright ... my warhammer crazy boyfriend wants to know if your brother has a web site or something... or if there is somewhere to go SEE more of his work.... please do tell!
