I called Walt this morning, but all I got was some dumb Mickey Mouse message. Wazzup?

This brings me back to my childhood when I was just trying to figure out what the big deal was about cartoons and comics. I then got hold of the Tarzan strip by Russ Manning.
That was the beginning of a massive obsession with cartoons,comics and their creators.

Wayne Thibaud is on the list. He's a great painter these days, and I didn't know he'd been a cartoonist. Hope he still keeps his hand in...
