Who is John N. Stewart
I don't really feel comfortable doing this lens, because it is all about me. I'm a semi-retired artist and musician and enjoy doing both equally. I used to do more of art and music until I rediscovered Squidoo, and now it seems that I'm spending most of my time creating lenses. It is definitely an addiction and I may need to attend meetings soon.
Three reasons to love John N. Stewart
1. He survived three 7.0 earthquakes in Los Angeles.
2. He's survived three marriages to three wonderful women.
3. He's 72 and still doesn't know what he wants to do when he grows up......

Tokyo Compu - watercolor by John N. Stewart
Here is a watercolor that I did called "Tokyo Compu". It's the result of copying one of my first computer graphic works in the early 90's. I did CG piece on an old IBM computer with a huge box of a monitor and using software called Dr Halo. The actual watercolor was done the old fashioned way, on paper. I still have the painting.
