I would like everyone to meet John Akers (pictured above) who is one extraordinary collector with a sense of humor. I really get a chuckle because John seems to know exactly which funny button to push for us passionate and sometimes crazy collectors and diggers.
I first came across Johns cartoons in Bottles and Extras and then noticed that he is pretty active on facebook (visit Old Bottle Page and friend). After a recent telephone conversation, I asked John for some of his past cartoons and was pleasantly surprised when he sent me a disk containing several of his favorites, two which are new and haven’t been see by anyone (Super Mart and Cat).
John also sent me an exerpt from his ‘almost finished’ novel called West of the Midnight Sun. John says he as written over 75,000 words and figures he has about 25,000 to go.
I think you will all agree, John is very talented!
