April Fool

George Erling - marker in sketchbook - 1991

I think I first saw George's work in 1979's Animal Bite Comix from Everyman Studio. Sometime in the mid-eighties I got to meet him through Gary Fields and CARTOON LOONACY.

George is hands down, one of my all-time favorite cartoonists, I just love his drawings and stories. He drew this in my sketchbook either at a convention or a picnic at his or Gary Fields' house.

George did the drawing of Max for me because I had written to him and told how much I had liked a story he had done about his dog Max.

You can see some of George's work here:
