John Best is the artistically talented step-father of internationally famed artist David Best who is known for his gigantic “temple” sculptures used, among other places, at the Burning Man festivals in Nevada. John and David were close (David even changed his last name to Best) and John greatly influenced David's interest in art, even bringing him to classes at the San Francisco School of Fine Arts as a young boy. In this collection of John's cartoon art work for his good friend, Jimmy Lewis, he reveals a bit of his love of cars, alcohol and women.
