Have you seen this person? Ben Watson used to wield a pretty snappy blog keyboard, but alas, he has vanished Into Thin Air (which I am currently reading-great book-in fact Nancy Pearl says it is a practically perfect book), but I digress...
There are rumors as to his whereabouts: a bar maid said she heard he was mowing lawns in Portugal.
Authorities decline to comment on his role as an undercover writer.
Extreme rock climbers swear that they passed him on the Hilary Step at the summit of Everest. This is unlikely as Canadian coffee baristas all agree that he could never make it that long without his double talls.
While we wait for news, I thought I'd show you some of his earlier work. The pink thing (above) was his very first bound book. This was the scene with all the firefighters. I thought he showed great character development, pacing, and pretty colors.
This rabbit is one of his character-driven stories. It reminds me of Edvard Munch's Scream. Or it could be the Easter Bunny.
Here Ben was exploring nonfiction. See the bird?
This character is a knight with a glowing sword. Perhaps a light saber.
In this scene, Ben has drawn himself ensconced in his snow fort. Snowballs are flying. As I remember he operated with a hair trigger aiming to destroy anything that moved.
Portrait of the artist/writer's mother. Title? Mommy.
This was a Happy Hanukkah card for his mother. Funny, I didn't realize he had converted. Are those cool flames, or what?
This piece speaks for itself.
Well, friends, keep looking. Ben's out there somewhere. He might even be writing. Which would be weird, since he sure hasn't used the old bloggy light saber in, like, forever...
