About the Book
The Humor of Roland Roy
Renowned artist Roland Roy is a fountain of creativity. His Art and Poetry encompass all aspects of Life. His versatility complements his creative genius and keeps him from becoming emotionally wedded to a single medium.
Roland Roy's sense of humor is unique to say the least. Often blunt, or irreverent, it's never boring, and it's always amusing.
This book shows his penchant for off the wall illustrations of common phrases, ideas and things we encounter daily. Take a trip on "Origami Air," visit "Uncle John," or see the "Fish Tank Juggler," if you want to enjoy some different fun.
I was born and raised in Honolulu and developed an interest in Art as an adult working for the Honolulu Police Department. Art became my sanctuary from my job, and I drew furiously for a year, while a friend sent my drawings to art colleges on the mainland. I chose Art Center in Pasadena and ventured off to California. After Art Center, I pursued a career in television and design that led to numerous awards, including the New York Film Festival Award for a documentary he co-wrote and directed. I also designed the CBS promotional Fall Campaign in 1986 and followed with the Star Wars Congressional Presentation for Ronald Reagan with Bob Able and Associates. I retired soon after that to concentrate on my own Art. I convey many moods in my work and am more interested in the effect of a subject than its correctness. I like to explore all facets of art from music to poetry, sculpting to stage plays. I want to touch, to feel everything. Visit www.Rolandroy.com to view samples of my Art.
