R.I.P. My Capt’n Abbe


Graced with the swashbuckling savvy of Errol Flynn, full of the adventuresome piracy of Black-beard, and driven by the tenacity of youthful enthusiasm exceeding Huckleberry Finn, there was sculpted a most charismatic figure of poise, intelligence and wit; a sharply chiseled judge of character, human frailties and timing perfection; a man who could intertwine fearsome gentleness, selfish generosity, indifferent compassion, honest untruthfulness, grueling tenderness and undying love, all encompassed in an abyss of human spirit; an infinite matrix, the depths of which were limitless and brimming with curious awe at every creation on this earth. Known by some as “Worry,” others as “Abbe,” still more as “Captain Smith-Jones,” and recognized by all as “Mr. Smith,” he was named Robert Latham Abernathy Smith, born in the Carolinas on May 26, 1934, to Mr. Jim Edward Smith and Mrs. Mary Daisy Starnes Smith. He was a resident of Wilmington, NC, until his passing on Wednesday, July 28, 2010. In his wake, he has left behind an elder brother, James Smith of Clinton, NC, a son, Jason Morris Smith & wife, Susan, and a grandson, Cooper Jones Smith, all of Wilmington, NC, as well as a myriad of extended family, friends and loved ones the world over. Burial at the Sea Buoy in Little River, SC, is pending.
Whether his talents took him to the upper crust of the movie industry on the west coast, or had him traveling like a breeze on the wind across the states of America, or working into the depths of the fishing industries on the Gulf Coast, throughout the Caribbean and all through the Florida Keys, or whether they afforded him the honor of induction to the status of a Living Legend on the east coast of Myrtle Beach, SC, he lived every millisecond of every inch of every mile of every hour of his life to the flavorful utmost; free-flying, free-riding, free-wheeling; as fierce and untamable as the ocean he so dearly loved.
On this course that has been set anew, hold fast, sail steady and ride ’em all the way, my Buccaneer Capt’n; a truly free spirit that whether loved or loathed, was in some fashion envied by all.

Beever gives an amazing illusion to his drawings, so that the objects appear to be three dimensional rather than flat as they actually are.

This is the Finished Piece.  Hard to believe that the little boy is standing flat on the pavement!

Julian admits that some people see his work as graffiti, and don't feel it has a place on public streets.  Happily, he says, he mostly receives a positive reaction and people like and enjoy his art.

 People avoid the hole.  The 3D aspect to his work came much later while he was working in Brussels, 'I decided to get into 3D after seeing the effect of tiles being removed from the street, and later trying to recreate the sense of depth in a drawing.'

Julian works in chalk, so his art, which takes up to 3 days to complete, is there only as long as the elements allow, 'If it rains it means I've done a lot of hard work for nothing, but I usually manage to avoid that.' The important thing for me is to get a photo of it at the end. For me, I'm working towards building a photograph as my end result, and if I get that I'm happy.'   'The secret is to set up a camera on a tripod and keep it in one spot and check every mark you make.  It's really just playing with perspective to make it appear different to what it really is.'
