Interview with Mike Dixon



Mike's pen name as an artist is Willard Dixon - that's his art web site.

He's not only a wonderful artist but gifted musician as well. He's in a jazz group that sounds as good as it gets to me. - dc

from Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind at Forty   - annotated version

Thanks to Mike Dixon for going over all this with me recently and also for drawing the fly on page 69 of ZMBM. He drew a new one for the new edition in 2000 because the original art was lost I guess. Mike did the cloud paintings at Greens Restaurant.

+ get a photo of Dixon's portrait of Shunryu Suzuki (done when Suzuki was approaching death)

+ include a link to Dixon's portrait of DC

Not sure who this is and it's not in the notes on I think maybe it's Mike Dixon. Will ask. - DC

9-28-14 - Yes it's Mike Dixon. And don't know who the kid is.

what's new this year

There's a lot of old material that's as good as new if you haven't read it. -DC
