Wonderful portrait of him.
Thanks France. I read " On the Road" when I was a teenager and like " Catcher In the Rye" by J.D Salinger, another story about teenage angst, left an indelible impression and helped shape my mind in years to come.
nice likeness, haha never read one of his books, i was too busy living then-running around the world, but i may have passed him once or twice?-you a supah drawah mister, john
One of the books he wrote " On the Road", was about his “Alice In Wonderland” type adventures across the US on route 66. Since I first read it back in 1982 I was always dreaming about such an adventure! :)
wonderful John love the blues …
john, i too have crossed this country many times,my brother.iived on the road for 20 years,and once walked from calif to mass,one spring-he came for 10days, each year ,and tell of the most wonderful stories..and incounters with,colorful,fellow travlers-i once tok a month to visit all the civil war battle fields and another month to visit all the american indian ruins in the southwest-and many other,places from canada to the west coast—i was a rolling stone-who slept anywhere, you could lay down,life has been good and not so good et-all
Yes, I remember this one back in my high school.I think Big Sur grabs you and drags you vigorously through the psychotic barriers of Kerouac’s impending insanity. You did this portrait in blue color, to me it really enhanced his struggle of his own demons……..Superb Mitsu Kuma !! ;) XXOO
I have huge respect for Jack Kerouac and his legacy lives on in many literary works which tried to emulate him but never quite succeeded. Jack and The beatnik movement in the 1950s really started the revolution of post modern thought and the counter-cultural revolution which exploded in 1960s.I used the blue purposely to evoke the state of his mind towered the end of his life. Doumo arigatou gozaimashita Mingei! XXOO :))))
i have off and on, thought of writing my hidden life of long ago john—in my 20,s i was quite a bugger-quiet so no one but us—my loves knew my-other life of women-and wonderfull dangers—with the wrong ones—and how to get kiiled for passions delights—while all the macho men where besting their chests i was robbin their nests hahah-but it was maybe tame by todays—values?and yes i loved wandering too much from here to istambul
