John Howe's Blog: Two Years or Two Thousand Miles Can't Post

Or the Statistics of Art, Parentheses Parity and Pencil Parings

Two years ago today, I stepped off a plane in Wellington and said to myself "Well, I'm back". It had been a while, clearly, and in all honesty, I thought at the time that now, two years along, I'd be repeating myself, but back on the other side of the globe!

As it turns out, things have gone rather differently, but parentheses are undependable entities; you open them, and you're never quite sure when you will be able to close them again.

Alan has a facebook page. I am a friend. [In reply to] Can't Post

He does not post a lot but that might change. By the way John Howe posts a lot on his FB page and I have followed his Journal for years.

He always has fascinating stories [In reply to] Can't Post

It's cool that he's such a great artist and such a great writer.

Thanks for posting they have FB pages! [In reply to] Can't Post

I found them immediately, and Weta's FB page as well.

Always a wonderful thing, to get a chance to see how an artist thinks.
