MORE ROY DOTY
If you were one of the rowdy mob present
at Roy Doty's 85th birthday
party, you were fortunate to catch a glimpse of some of Roy's latest
work -- a series of typically amazingly intricate posters featuring cats,
doves and more. No need for me to describe, as the posters and other Doty
items are featured merchandise at a new website, Alphabetics. These must be seen!
While we're at it, GLC member Wayno found this
BLOG TRIBUTE to Doty, and we're happy to share.

LOTSA ROB HARRELL NEWS
Straight from the man hisself --
I'm happy to announce that there's a new
Big Top book available! I've got a few things to tell you about,
so let's get started...
1. The book! 'Sawdust and Greasepaint' is the
second collection of Big Top strips, and it picks up right where the last
book ends. So, act now! Get your hands on one of these babies! Buy ten!
They make great gifts...
'Sawdust and Greasepaint' is only available through
Lulu.com. It's a great print-on-demand site where I was able to design
the book myself. It looks great and... this could just be me, but I swear
the strips are extra funny.
Okay. The link:
