An Adjustment Proven Unnecessary by Time

A chapter in my cartoonist’s memoir The Deserting Caricature Artist drew attention to a possible caricature portrait of Angelina Jolie. I was not sure that the famed actress was the subject of the ink brush drawing. But the portrait conveyed something of her likeness to strengthen my assumption.
It was one of those pictures I drew many years ago in practicing the art and building a portfolio. When the book was published the chapter acknowledged Ms. Jolie's marriage to the actor Brad Pitt. In fact, the chapter is named She Could Be The Wife of Brad. The book was published in early-2016 by CreateSpace.
Then news arrived that the famous couple is ending their marriage later that same year in September 2016. Then the thought rushed through my mind. Should I revise the book for that update? Eventually, I felt it is important to leave it 'as is.' Because the focus of the memoir wasn't about the latest gossip or star-tracking celebrities' current lives.
It is this month billions were taken by surprise hearing reports that Pitt and Jolie were discontinuing their divorce proceedings and reuniting their relationship. It is favorable news from a couple resolving their marital woes. What if Angelina and Brad decide to resume their divorce? Well, that's their personal business with their children. What is vital is the book The Deserting  Caricature Artist communicate respect for wedded unions and not celebrate break ups often highlighting in media.

Fiddling Around

Greetings, uncertain of what to post here for the first day of August, it is my wish to share a new video. There is a portrait of a folk country musician in my  book The Deserting  Caricature Artist. Otherwise the video is not relative of my books, it is is called The J Afternoon Violinst.


The above is a You Tube video, many are aware there are video grapes who are raking in tremendous income and viewership with association with the Web site. Almost a decade ago, I was taking part in that arrangement allowing commercial advertising in the videos and on my video channel. Much of income resulted from how many persons watch the videos and click on the ads. 
Although I have a YouTube channel. I am not involved in the arrangements of earning revenue from the videos. Also, I am not endeavoring to get a high count of viewership, my interest is unexisting in these competitive endeavors. It does not matter to how much or how little other YT video producers are earning. The singular reason of posting the video above is to share it with you.
