The Great Pumpkin

The Great Punpkin Cartoon

A friend had a cartoon challenge with several topics. I chose the great pumpkin. Of course, there was only one direction I could go with it…

I have been listening to a lot of Wodehouse lately and of course am anticipating Downton Abbey. But of course The Great Gatsby is about America in the 20s… I highly recommend The Paris Wife by Paula McLain. It imagines the life a young Ernest Hemingway life in Paris and hanging out with many other now famous artists and authors including the Fitzgeralds.

Another good inspiration is Cold Comfort Farm, both the book and the movie. (The edition of the book with the cover by Roz Chast is my favorite).

Now, back on track for the next Ultimate Sinister Comic, Adventures in America.
