For nearly three decades, journalist and educator John Tibbetts — an associate professor of film studies at the University of Kansas — has enlivened his interviews with Hollywood stars and filmmakers by creating watercolor portraits of his subjects. Invariably, his interviewees sign the paintings, leaving Tibbetts with a unique collection of personal art and famous autographs.

Stargazing features dozens of these signed portraits. Most are of well-known actors interviewed by Tibbetts on Hollywood junkets, but some feature directors, musicians, and authors.
