I was surprised and delighted to receive the message below last night:
As you know, I was recently introduced to your blog by my good friend Mike Lynch. When he discovered The Bay Of Pigs being analyzed by Tom Watson, and my finding that he knows what he's talking about, I thought I might clue your readers in on some "studio secrets". Perhaps if they emailed you some questions.
Anyway, You have a terrific site, and convinced me that I need my own!
So there you go, TI blog readers... if you'd like to take advantage of this rare opportunity to learn directly from the artist himself, contact me at my email address and I'll forward your questions to Mr. Kossin.
Finally, I must once again express my gratitude to Tom Watson for his unprecedented efforts in providing all the scans (including the Sandy Kossin photo above, from the May 1969 issue of American Artist) and his intelligent, engaging analysis of Sandy Kossin's "Bay of Pigs" series.
Tom's final post begins immediately below this one...
