Foo-ther Discussion

When I visited Bill Holman, of Smokey Stover fame, to research the tribute that just ended up in the Arf Forum book he gave me lots of goodies. I didn’t have room for all of them in Arf Forum—but that’s why Al Gore invented the internet!

This is a photo of a fellow cartoonist spitting out wine to create Smokey’s visage. Darn, a couple of days ago when I pulled this out I remembered who Bill told me this was, but now for the life of me I can’t. Help me.

Is this a hoot or what? Bill Holman does Little Orphan Annie! Pretty ribald title–Little Organ Fannie?Arf! Arf!

Finally, Bill gave me this rare piece of sheet music. “What this country needs is FOO!” Boy, that more true than ever! For more Holman rarities, including unpublished art, get the Arf Forum book, hot off the presses—be the FOO-st on your block to have one!
