~J.T. YOST . . . IT’S DREAM TIME, SNOOP DOGGY DOGG
like I said, it was the TABLE of the THREE WIZARDS, one from the left, one from the right – and one at the very center. J.T. YOST was the wizard from the right.
J.T. works from the same deck as CHARLES SCHULZ – a low key, but wicked take on the small things – that really matter !!
you know: traditional Sunday paper comics !! story lines and all. and yes, I have been called Peppermint Patty – more than once over my lifetime, so I would know.
J.T.’s take on the world – is very kind of: very old soul in a young – wish he was hip – body !! and going gently south – – quickly. or is that, cynically, fast ? I guess he knows best – because ‘OLD MAN WINTER’ – is he !!

“J.T. YOST’S first collection of comics is alternately humorous and quietly devestating, but is consistently brutally honest. Winner of the 2009 Xeric award.”
“Are you kidding me?” – “You can’t take all this junk with you !! Most of it was MOM’S anyhow!!” – “Surely you don’t need a closetful of women’s clothing. . . or this ashtray.” – “You don’t even smoke!“.
page from: J.T. YOST – ‘OLD MAN WINTER’.
omg x 1,000 – got to dedicate this to CHARLIE (BROWN) FINCH at artnet – the colorful scribe who put the surly but vastly poetic word: DINGLEBERRY – into legit play in his recent, and vastly mis-guided CATTELAN take-down. yep, you can now throw your thinger dingers in the politically correct, academic, and vastly up-tight, snooty comes to mind, lexicon of art world criticism – thanks to Charlie and his generous editor, Walter Robinson. and I mean that, sincerely.
dingleberry going in the wrong direction – aside !!
apart from the ‘piddingly’ affordable tomes – J.T. was selling, he was also handing out FREE !! ‘OLD MAN WINTER’ shiny hard cardstock bookmarks ~ wow. combined with the new FREE !! SMOKE SIGNALS from DESERT ISLAND – which were lying around for the taking . . . at the fest’s entry landing, I now have something for everyone !! – on my xmas gift list !!
