I'll start it off with this little ditty. It's an old drawing, but seems to fit the bill:

Thanks Bob. Glad you're back. I haven't seen any of your work here or on H.A.M.B for a month, and hoping everything was ok.

Bill

Bill, I stopped posting on the HAMB ....got tired of the attitude of some of the guys there. The "we hate Photoshop" mentality and "we draw by hand so we're really artist" postings that some of the guys were putting up for a few weeks in a row. I sensed a little of that here as well and didn't post last month .....will try to add something this month and see how it goes.

These art forums use to be open to any and all ....no one criticized the medium or the artwork. It was all for the fun and the joy of it. But over at the HAMB, that's no longer the case. They only want certain types of artwork, which they get week after week. I for one am sick of seeing pin strips and Rat Fink every week, but would never bad mouth an artist for posting it. I guess those guys haven't discovered the scroll bar on their computer to take them to the next image .......

I couldn't agree more, Bob. It seems like HAMB has a tight little clicky group going there, and if you're not part of it, your art is unimportant, even if it's top notch work. I for one, always looked forward to your work as well as Dan Greenburg's (correct name?) great artistic photography. I really appreciate all forms of art, but post after post of that girl's pinstriping, and the many forms of RatFink, as good as it is, made my eyes glaze over after awhile! I'm hoping that anyone on this site would refrain from criticizing anyone's contribution to the monthly contest, regardless of the medium or technique, and just truly appreciate the effort that was generated. Looking forward, as always, Bob, to your entry this month.......Bill

Booz Haul-in

Iowa has a rich history on the art of making some good brew. One such drink is the famous Templeton Rye. Which was and is made around Templeton Iowa.During prohibition the moonshiners had to get smart to hide their goods. Much brew went over the Lincoln Highway. One such town was Carroll Iowa. The story goes that the Cops was checking autos on the west side of town where two main highways came together. The blockade landed much of the Brew. So some on the shiners made a deal with the local funeral parlors. The funeral Parlor was located on the west side of town., so when they moved a body or visit the cemeteries on the east side of town the employees would hide the hooch in the cryps or special cut outs that were carved into tombstones with metal sliding doors. There are still hide outs on the back of the stones today. The 1946 Ford in my Drawing is a real truck I have spotted at central Iowa car shows.

Good drawing, Johnny. Most of these shine haulers had hopped up motors to get down the road faster, and outrun the law. Was it "Thunder road" with Robert Mitchum that featured him in his '50 Ford shine runner?
