Anyway, I want to thank all you readers for continuing to support my website, and my endeavours overall. Every web hit, email, comment, like and tweet is hugely appreciated and helps to keep me going in the face of the usual creative floundering that besets all comic creators at various times.
With that in mind, I will be announcing a very nice Rainbow Orchid competition sometime in the next couple of weeks - so keep your eye out for it.
In other news, those of you who keep up with the ligne claire scene in Europe may be aware of an exhibition taking place at the Cartoonmuseum in Basel, Switzerland, entitled The Adventures of the Ligne Claire - The Herr G. and Co. Affair.
There is a marvellous poster for it, by Exem, and as I'd only ever seen the one with the title on, I hadn't noticed that Julius Chancer has been generously included amongst the pantheon of ligne claire stars. He may be rather amusingly obscured in the final version, but I'm nonetheless chuffed to see him there at all (by the way, that's another Jules in the window next to him - the creation of Émile Bravo).
Many thanks to Ruwani Weerasinghe for noticing our British representative and letting me know! How many of the others can you name?
