I was so excited to get to contribute this piece for Searle in America, an awesome project conducted by Matt Jones. There's never been an exhibition of Ronald Searle's work in California, but The Cartoon Art Museum will host the show this fall in San Francisco!
'ol Ronald had a positive influence on so many of us. These Searle-inspired pieces from a bunch of peeps in the animation/cartooning/illustration world will go on auction soon to help pay for the shipping of Searle's treasures. Get ready, ebay.
Be sure to check out Matt's great Searle tribute blog, by the way -- http://ronaldsearle.blogspot.com
