Ok...I'm back...sort of....

I sure hope I have any readers left after my sabbatical. I thought my first post after being sick would be about my adventures in Epstein-Barr Land but I've grown weary of even thinking about what's gone in this last month so I'm going to write about something else. Maybe in a couple of days I'll rehash the events of my illness but not today.

I would like to show you the works of my favorite new artist, but first I need to apologize for the red aura on the 2nd picture. No matter how I tried to take a picture of his drawings my flash would drown out the drawing. The red flash is the pre-flash warning light on my camera. If I take a picture with the flash turned off and my camera thinks I should have the flash turned on it gives me the red warning light.

So with no further ado I present the sketches of:


This work depicts a parade whose participants include all of the characters from the movie "Wall E" and 4 members of the "Peanuts Gang". The character leading the parade is Christian. He created an animated character to portray himself and he includes the character in most of his drawings.

This second drawing portrays Mickey and Minnie Mouse tickling the artist.

What is so amazing about this artist? You've seen better you say? Well, what if I told you the artist is a 4th grader? A 4th grader with Asperger's Syndrome? I wish I could make these pictures bigger so that you could see the detail included. I didn't get to watch him draw these two pictures but I have been able to watch him draw. With just a pencil and a blank piece of paper the artist whips these out in about 2 minutes and then moves on to the next one. He. Is. Amazing.

Rumor has it Christian is going to send me some more of his drawings. When he does I am gladly going to post them so that all the world can see just how proud I am of him.

Christian Baxter of southern California. Remember that name. You'll be glad you did.

Okay, so how about more details...how did you find this brilliant artist?

These are really amazing.

I am glad you are somewhat better. The Internet (and your loyal readers)has missed you.
