Two very different concerts at the Flynn. One downstairs–Jazz with Brian McCarthy in the Flynn Space. Loved it…

Natalie Macmaster and Donnell Leahy–A Celtic Family Christmas.  Great show on the Flynn main stage. So much energy. Amazing.  Too dark and distracting to draw during a performance…but…

A message from Wilbur…

Wilbur…waits…

“It’s 2017. I’m waiting for my book. She said she would write a book about me. Instead, she wrote a story about a penguin. I ate the manuscript. She wrote it again. She drew pictures and made a dummy. She sent it off before I got a chance to eat it. I’m hoping her editor doesn’t like it. Then she can get started on my book. For now, I keep looking at her. I think she’s feeling guilty, because she’s drawing lots of pictures of me. I’ll keep you posted”

Sincerely,

Wilbur

PS. At least she’s updated her blog.
