Lesser-known Icons 26


[Click for anti-shrinkage]

At maximum magnification, you'll see that the self-righteous nurse is offering a cup of Sanka to the caffeine-frazzled housewife.

The Muriel Cigar gal is possibly still too-well-known to be included in this series, but here she is anyhow, an obedient and sexy I-Dream-Of-Jeannie figure who appears any time you want to light up.

But meanwhile, the K&M genie is a total doofus. Look at the size of those hands, in relation to the rest of him.

I created these collages months apart, without ever looking backwards. And yet I think that, to date, there has not been a single accidental duplication. This collage, however, features Tree Brand knives, which we just saw in Icons 24. But there, all we got was the tree icon itself. Here we get singing knives! I wonder if they're related to Elric's Stormbringer?

HPL museum exhibit

Here's a message from my Pal Patrick Gyger, concerning the recent HPL-themed exhibit he curated:

Hello everyone,

Ten days after an unspeakable opening, here are some images from the show:

Just try and find your work in there now!

For those who couldn't be with us (and therefore retained their sanity), copies of the catalogue are being sent at the moment. We hope you enjoy the book...

All the very best,

Patrick
