Fantagraphics will be publishing the complete Pogo comic strip by the genius Walt Kelly and is looking for original art to reproduce from when available. Below is their cover mock-up for the book. And you’ll see the art I”m lending for the cause–it’s the original art from my collection of the very first Pogo strip! We’re scanning it today and then it goes back in the bank vault! But, I thought you might want to see it before this profound possum is locked up again! (Thanx RM!)
I sc-ARF-fed my copy of Arf Forum a few days ago. Fuckin’ fantastic!!! Outstanding (as always).
I remain in awe,
Michael Dooley, editor of The Education of a Comic Artist
P.S. Congrats on the interview with Steven Heller about the Big Boy comics you do.
Thanks, man, coming from a creative type of your great caliber thats a real honor!
