[EDIT-25th-June 2019. The length of a page strand has been altered in order to better serve the Fan-Fiction Board. The knock-on result is that my general description of where some of these observations lie within the now old page structure is misleading. You will be taken to the appropriate thread but you will need to roughly -double- my estimates]

That was precisely the shot I was looking for William, thanks for posting it!

I'm pleased that the thread is being so positively received. So thanks to all the kind words said but really the focus needs to be on finding and recording some of John past (and current) observations. So, as welcome as thanks are, lets try and stay focussed on the point. I'd hate to be a new board member having to wade through "Thanks Darren's" to look for a relevant JB Observation!

I personally have learned a lot about art and story telling from my exposure to John's finished products for decades. I feel, as I do with art in general that these lessons will continue right up until I shuffle off this mortal coil!* How and why John does what he does, lets me understand more about why I draw or picture what I do. Not necessarily by direct effect but also by comparison.

So collating these are as much for me as they are for my fellow board members. So not -entirely- altruistic, there's a good pinch of selfishness in that mixture!

If any other board members want to add JB observations, please feel free to do so.

*(stolen from Hamlet, without apology!)
