“All the drawings…come from memory; nothing you see in this book was copied. I have what you might call a photographic memory; whatever I once see I can place it on paper. Most of the scenes are things that I saw many years ago starting in the early 50’s when I was a child. I have always had the ability to draw and paint.”
