At one point in the early 80s I was completely without funds. But when I saw the Celestial Arts publication of Carl Bark's Uncle Scrooge McDuck, I just had to have it. The so totally cool bonus was this signed print. I scrounged up pennies, I dug through old pockets, I did odd (really odd) jobs. I didn't have enough money for food, but I finally came up with enough for the book and print. It was $200 back then, I've heard that the value is 10 times that now. I missed a few meals then, but I still have this now.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
