Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".

Years ago I watched "The Strange Loves of Martha Ivers" and came away with the (not-very-original) idea Van Heflin should have been playing the marmish D.A., and Kirk Douglas should have been the free-wheelin' tough-guy gambler. But I watched it again last week and have to say I was wrong. It's maybe Heflin's best role as a leading man. You'll be amazed to see Douglas looking sooo young.
This doesn't really capture the luggish, lumpen Van Heflin that is forever imprinted on my heart...but it'll have to do.
BONUS UPDATE: I'll make like Ellis and keep adding images to the same post.....
