neal crosbie landscape
Zen cowboy painter and musician.

So this week I sit down with an hour chat with artist, musician and cartoonist Neal Crosbie. Back when I was a lad, Neal Crosbie had an alternative comic in one of the weekly papers here in Santa Barbara, these odd strips that featured his Coyote character and jokes that weren't jokes, more like Zen koans.

Fast forward many years, and I began to run into Neal's work hanging in places like the Blue Agave, where it felt like the parts of his comic had been exploded onto the canvas. It's like a zen cowboy met up with Paul Klee and jammed together.

The Walking Around Sutra

He's represented by several national and international galleries, but if you're in Santa Barbara on a Sunday, you can find him at the Cabrillo Blvd. Arts and Crafts walk, which is where I first met him in person and started to set up this interview.

Crosbie is also in a band called Zen Horse Repair along with musician and friend Tom Lackner, among other things. We talk about all sorts of things, and we laugh a lot too. At the moment you can find him at www.facebook.com/neal.crosbie
