Late night, as in Charles Knight, the late great scientific illustrator whose paintings will always be “the way dinosaurs look” to the the children of the 50s, 60s and 70s. I looked at a lot of modern illustrations that are … Continue reading
These have actually been done for a while; I was just waiting to be home and at my desk at the same time the internet was working. Go back to the script and see how I have added a tiny … Continue reading
When biking, Mr. Spit (the junior hero of the neighborhood and general purpose bad boy with a heart of gold) rocks a vintage Schwinn Stingray from tbe late 60s or early 70s. This is an established canon fact, and I’m … Continue reading
