More Bo Michanek

Got some requests for more of Bo Michanek artwork. So here are some pieces made for the holidays in the late 70's or early 80's. All scanned from copies of old reprocopies.
I'm not sure where they were used. As X-mas cards in the weekly? For the book club?
And look at the third drawing. Am I the only one who doesn't get the joke? I'm just as puzzled as the nephews...




There are plenty of sketches and rare artwork by Bo coming up in the next volume of "BAMSE-biblioteket" here in Sweden. Naturally the focus is on his Bamse years, but the article (by Simon Bülow) will cover his entire career.

Hmm... I'd better post something else next time or this will turn in to a Disney-blog...
Myself I'm having a cold (Not a terrible one, just a mild one) and I should write the next episode of Emma & Sara so Hedvig has something to rough before she leaves for the holidays. Hegh-ho, back to work I go...

Just a note to say I think I got the joke in the third drawing now...
(They probably have brought the door with them to see if they can get the tree in through the door.)

Are you sure it's Christmas Cards they're intended for? The last one looks more like a Christmas Present Label to me. There were numerous stickers attached to every other issue of Kalle Anka & C:o in the 70's, perhaps these were for one of those?

Trevligt! Andra teckningen har jag som "[e]tt julkort från Kalle Ankas Bokklubb" - fast med Bo Michanek-utformat "GOD JUL"!
