Jim Damron, one of my favorite artists, gets a mention in the New York Times

I think the value of my art collection may have increased a bit today. Not only did one of my favorite Ypsi artists, Jim Damron, just make it into the pages of the New York Times, but the article included a link back to something I’d written about a painting of his that I’d purchased a few years back… For what it’s worth, it’s kind of a stretch to call Jim an “Ypsi artist,” as he just lived here for a short while, several decades ago, as a toddler. Still, though, I like mentioning it… Anyway, I’m happy for Jim, as, to my knowledge, this is the first mention of his work to appear in the national press, and I hope it leads to greater recognition of his work, which is really wonderful. [That’s his painting of the late Adam West as Batman, in the photo below.]

Oh, and if you want to buy the painting of Buck Henry that I bought from Jim, which is now kind of famous thanks to the New York Times, it’s not for sale. I intend to keep it until I pass away, at which point my lazy, good-for-nothing grandchildren will have to fight one another for the opportunity to pawn it.
