Det är ju så självklart. Varför gör man inte sådär?

Underbart!
En mästare i toppform.
Helt egen stil, aldrig matchad.
Tack för närbilderna

What nervous and lively lines!
Incredible.
Thanks, Joakim.
Don't hesitate to give us more Holdaway. (Especially Rome Brown!)

Yves: Sure! I can take a few snapshots of another Holdaway or two. However, no Romeo Brown. I've never seen an original daily from that strip. Never heard of anyone who got one. They might have been thrown away a long time ago. But who knows...?

Yves Ker Ambrun said...

Thanks, Joakim. Too bad about Romeo. All the reproductions I know are really on the light side, most of the thin detailed lines have disappeared.
And I think his style was quite different than in Modesty Blaise. It all looks like drawn from live models or at least from especially made and posed photographs... (Or maybe that was "only" the mark of his fantastic talent!)

Oh, it's Jeff McCain again and his "materpieces".
Entertaining in a way. ;)
