This is the place to find all those things, people, places of interest and enjoyment that I have dabbled in throughout the years.It will be an ongoing evolving page , dipping into the past and present.Separate pages will be added as I go along,[2,3,4,5,etc.] so just flip down the connecting pages for more.There have been some glitches caused by copying content from one site to another so bear with me while I try to sort out any mix ups in coding.On the following pages you’ll find……in no particular order….
JUNE 2013 :Time to spotlight some of the best comics of all time. Krazy Kat by George Herriman and Little Nemo by Winsor McCay.Early 20th century meditations printed in daily or Sunday newspapers. High art casually taken for granted in the guise of the lowly comic strip…..ah, the subterfuge!
Below you will also see something of an introduction to George Herriman and his mythic creation “Krazy Kat” in the featured short videos. Krazy Kat was unlike any cartoon strip seen before.It climbed to levels of design, vision and creativity that few works of art ever achieved.Cartoon jazz… All this to meet a daily newspaper deadline.Also prepare for the beauty of Winsor McCay’s creation “Little Nemo”
Below you will also see a little video dedicated to my much -loved, late Uncle Paddy,”The Shooting of dangerous Dan McGrew” by Robert Service which he could recite without prompt when not introducing me to fine red wines and baking the most delightful apple tarts.
