Peg-Leg Pete

Walked past a building on Flower Street in Glendale last Monday.
Seems to be a Peg-Leg Pete fan working there. :-)

Rare Rabbit

Cough, cough! Home with a cold and feeling all dizzy.
Trying to organize all the files that has been piling up on my desktop into proper folders.
While doing that I found this piece.

It looks like a try-out strip for a never produced daily version of Brer Rabbit/Uncle Remus/Song of the south.
The Uncle Remus sunday page began in 1945 and the contents of this strip is similar to the events in the first of those. See image below. So I assume that this strip was made around that time.

Also: Check out the Pictorial Review cover featuring Brer Rabbit and friends over at the DHI Facebook page by clicking HERE.

The Tenggren Book

Just got my copy of the brand new book on Gustaf Tenggren by Lars Emanuelsson and Oskar Ekman! It's one thick brick of a book. 280 pages!
It chronicles Tenggrens life and features an enormous amount of artwork from his entire career. Lots of stuff I never have seen before. I have yet to read the book, but I just wanted to share my enthusiasm and show you a few spreads from it. As you can see, even if you don't understand a word Swedish you'll want this for the images.

For more info on Tenggren and his art, check out the Tenggren blog!


What's up?

Notice how slow everything is here.
Updates are far and few between. Why?
I'm currently drawing a graphic novel written by Mårten Melin. And as I'm on a leave of absence from my regular work until next summer I have to finish the book before that. Much is already drawn, but it will still take a few months to finish it up. And I still do Nils the Cat so there's plenty of stuff to be done.
Just in case you wondered.

What happened to those Russell Patterson pages that was scheduled to run once a week, some of you might wonder.
