speaking of good old theo ellsworth i just remembered this:

sushineandpercy

these are two characters from my old book pop gun war: gift. i haven’t got a lot of fan art over the years. mostly just a few things from friends but this was my favorite thing for years.  i got it sent to me way back when i had a P.O. box on 14th street in NYC, people actually corresponded by mail, and years before i ever met theo in person. that was a fun time living in that crazy city, making comics and getting mail from other creators making neat stuff. it was cool to meet theo in the flesh when i moved to portland years later. he gave me ride home from a cartoonist party and i was so delighted when i found out he was the same man who made that.

while image searching for stuff to post on here about LOS Wrenchies (a spanish edition out now from sapristi comics) i found the wallpaper above. click on it to make it big sauce.

recycled this Hollis for a different language too.
