Barks handwritten script to TDWCtD

Just got a mail from John Lustig with some good news!
The complete handwritten script to "The Duck Who Came to Dinner" by Carl Barks is now posted on his Last Kiss site!
I posted a few images last month, but there are more panels from the story to be seen on Johns site along with background info.
Just click HERE!

A sample script page by Carl Barks. More to be found on the Last Kiss site.

Lightbox View – #%§∞

You might have noticed that Blogger have switched to a new "Lightbox view" when you click on images.
Like this:

You know the stuff that makes it hard to just drag and drop an image if you want to download it. The thing that doesn't allow you to zoom in on an image?
Does it annoy you? Do you want to get rid of it on your own blog?
Well here's how to do it:

If you’d like to disable Lightbox on your blog, log in to Blogger and select No next to Lightbox in the Settings | Posts and Comments section (new interface) or the Settings | Formatting section (old interface).

Feel free to spread the word to other bloggers.

Tom and Jerry artist identification

Calling all Funny Animal experts!
While scanning old Tom & Jerry proofs I came across a story by an artist I couldn't identify.
Anyone who can help? Would be nice to get the credits right.

Edit: The artist is Vic Lockman.
Thanks, Alberto!

Do you like the art of Russell Patterson? Of course you do!
Here's a photo of one of his "Pin-up girls" cartoons from March 28, 1945.
Beautiful brush work as always when it comes to Patterson!  

If you are interested in buying the original art you should mail the owner right away, as it's for sale.  You can reach her at:  dreamfarm2 at

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Mickey watercolor by Gottfredson

This Floyd Gottfredson drawing of Mickey and Minnie surfaced earlier this year.
Watercolors, besides the ones he did for Willits, are not common to see but apparently he did a few with Mickey and Minnie dancing in various costumes. This one was made for John Mass.

Here's a similar one that I posted back in 2009.

Hagar the Fakeable

Would you pay $157.50 for this?

Well, apparently someone did on eBay today.
If the buyer reads this: Send me $100 and I'll do a bunch of re-inked Hagar strips for you. 10 or more and you'll get 'em for $75 each. Deal? :)
