A couple of the articles mention how he wanted to be a painter but settled for being a science fiction writer instead. That resonates with me because I wanted to be a science fiction writer but settled for being a painter instead.

Closer to home, and on a more cheery note, here are a couple of things that made me laugh recently: John Hurrell calls Andrew McLeod a Wellington artist, and Nicky Watson talks about modelling for Liz Maw.

That Hurrell piece made me think that a good test for people is whether they see the humour in Bocklin's work.
