THUMBNAIL THURSDAY THINKS TIPPI HEDREN HAD IT EASY
Every kid on every beach or every park you've ever seen...... Apart from the actually 'talking English' bit, I saw this happen once. If you're going to chase birds, know your weight class, that's all I'm saying. "My buddies here tell me you get a big kick o...

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY ACTUALLY POSTS A GOOD ONE
Another one from the 'completed' files, and I actually like this one. I think I get it just about right.

IF THIS POST IS LATE IT'S BECAUSE I'M STILL ON BALI TIME
You'll have to forgive me if I seem distracted: two weeks ago I was standing at the bottom of a forty-foot gorge, having clambered a hundred feet upstream to stand at the base of a fifty-foot high waterfall, halfway up a mountain in the middle of an Indones...

THUMBNAIL THURSDAY GOES BABUSKHA BABUSHKA BABUSHKA YA YA
Time for another cartoon that made it all the way to the inked stage, thereby using my cartooning skills to prove what a great writer I am. If I could find somebody to carve and paint these, I'd buy them. And give them to my granddaughter.
