    Wow, this looked immediately familiar. I wonder if the angel mural/mascot of the famous Sink restaurant in Boulder Colorado was influenced by this 1939 Will Elder photo art?

    Ha, what a wacky expression! Rubber-face, reminds me of Jim Carrey that way — Mechfish, that’s intriguing, have a link to that video? I like Wallace and Gromit a lot.

    Why use the ugly ‘vivaciousness’ when you could say ‘vivacity’?

    Elder was one of those cartoonists that had me in hysterics as a kid, and then when I’d look back at his work as an adult, I’d go right back into the same hysterics. His work was so good at entertaining you didn’t even think about how incredibly well it was drawn. Thanks Mark for so often focusing on the people and things that make comics great.

    This is like the time I watched the video of Nick Park and noticed that he has many of the same facial tics and gestures as Wallace and Gromit.

    Will Elder obviously used a mirror while learning to draw. ;)
