Frank X. Tolbert 2: His ArtPosted: April 21, 2014 Filed under: people, poetry, sight seeing 1 Comment
My friend Frank X. Tolbert has always been one of my heroes, and I’ve missed him a lot in recent years. He lives in Houston. His father was a famous journalist with the Dallas Morning News. Frank is one of those people who nourishes your soul when you’re around him, and he doesn’t have any clue what he’s giving to you. Frank and I shared a friendship with a man who was a hero to both of us: Roxy Gordon, a writer, poet, and another one of those people who give you things without knowing it.
Here’s a few samples of Frank’s work. See his Facebook website here for a taste of X’s style. See more of his art here.
Go here to see a sample of some of Roxy Gordon’s poems and writing and check him out on Amazon for some CDs of his poetry-songs. Note the death mask in the right corner.
I checked out his website-great artist. He is friends with one of my old friends of 40+ years from Texas that now lives in Dharmasala-Sam Squyres.
