Stolen Art / Arte Roubada

Someone at the Portuguese customs or postal service stole the original art for these two Ray Bailey / Milton Caniff pages (# 13, 14 of Strictly for the Smart Birds, 1951). If you bump into them anywhere, please let me know! Thanks!

Alguém da alfândega ou dos CTT roubou-me a arte original destas duas páginas de Ray Bailey / Milton Caniff (# 13, 14 de Strictly for the Smart Birds, 1951). Se as virem por aí agradeceria muito que me avisassem. Obrigado!

Oslo Comics Expo

I was invited by the Oslo Comics Expo to participate in a seminar about modern aesthetics in comics. I had a great time! Thanks Håvard S. Johansen, thanks Erle Marie Sørheim! I loved meeting everyone there (and I mean also those who aren't mentioned on this post, of course)! It was great to meet Matthias Wivel, Paul Gravett, Fredrik Strömberg, Joost Swarte, Ulli Lust and the Drawn & Quarterly people: Tom Devlin, Seth, Chris Ware, Jillian Tamaki, Pascal Girard, Marc Bell. I hope to meet you all again soon...
