In  “Comments” I said that I would post my favorite Pyton gag. I trust Jan, rest his soul, won’t mind my infringing on his copyright.

Here are three more pictures on my wall

Yesterday was Halloween. We had tons of little kids banging on the door. I ran out of candy I gave the last three kids potatoes and a banana. Then I turned off all the lights and locked the door.

8. This is easy. I drew it in 2008. Took me 8 days. I’m proud to say that there isn’t a drop of correction fluid on the drawing. I had a few more characters that Garfield, huh? I have some posters of the drawing that I’m going to make available.

9. Swedish fans will know this one. I’m a big fan of Jaokim Lindengren. I met him on my first trip to Göteborg. He was there with toy car club buddies in dressing gowns and fezzes drinking martinis. Later on he drew children’s books and a comic about Kapten Stofil. I traded originals with him later on. His artwork is magnificent.

10. This is a magazine illustration by my friend, Arnold Roth. During his career he had to be the best in the business. I sent him an early Arnold strip, and he sent this beautiful work in return. He’s also a terrific saxophonist.

      I originally printed 24. I don’t know how many I have left. I’ll have to check. I’ll try to make them available next week.
