Tomorrow's post today
Here's a little peek at tomorrow's #happyfriday #dailydrawing.
It's a compositional nod to a particular illustration by Leonard Filgate, originator of the "Rip Squeak" character, a print of which (above) I happen to own. The image was the art used for the poster of the L.A. Times book festival years back, and a framed version hung in the ladies room at Joseph-Beth Booksellers for a handful of years. I loved it. I love it still.
But that's another story.
Tonight when I was preparing my Happy Friday image, and didn't quite know what Alonzo felt like doing, I stared up at Rip Squeak and thought: Hmmmmn.
And there you go.
