I was gonna run with “Waiting for Godot” series longer than just two strips, but honestly, it just never came together the way I wanted it to. Dare I say, the way I was waiting for it to…

I mentioned the other day that a piece of art was lost/stolen during an art show a couple of years ago.

Here’s a small version of the image. Clicking on it should get you to a larger image.


I quite liked this piece. It reminded me of a French or Belgian cartoonist I remembered as a kid, when I lived in the south of France. I’m not sure what his or her name was, but they did a bunch of posters that involved lots of little cartoony characters running around doing lots of cartoony stuff. Anyway, they made a big impression on my 14 year-old self.

Heartbreakingly, the original art for this was also lost at the show:

EDIT: Patrice Mermoud suggests I was thinking of Argentinian-born Mordillo. Indeed I was, and I’m ashamed his very famous name slipped my mind.)

It’s a shame, because a good friend wanted this piece…

It was the cover for Dork Tower 8, and a riff on a classic Cerebus cover.

A third piece was also lost/stolen. But honestly, I really can’t remember what it was. It certainly wasn’t as important to me as these two pieces.
