Un Lavoro Bello II

And now for something completely different- Drawing a Funny Cartoon in 20 Steps, in Italian. My awe-filled thanks for this to Diego Ceresa, the indefatigable genius translator for several comic strips (including Cul de Sac) at Linus Magazine.

Who da thunk it? It's even funnier in Italian!

Hilarious and honest! I laughed out loud. Then my wife came over and told me it is a real language. Now I'm a little confused.

This is a classic!

Revieved excellent news this afternoon: The local B&N just called. CdS:THE BOOK is in and waiting for me, they said.

Oops. I meant "received."

So when your cartoons are translated into Italian, are you re-lettering them or is someone doing that for you?

Diego Ceresa is also one of our best letterists, here in Italy... :-)

BTW, Richard, I talked about your work today at Bye!
