I Yam What I Yam

Here's another birthday card, this time for Gordan Calma, a friend and one of the world's biggest fans of a certain spinach-eating one-eyed sailor-man.

Take a look at Gordan's superb web site dedicated to Popeye , with the main focus on the legendary Popeye cartoons from the '30s and early '40s produced by Max & Dave Fleischer.

And speaking of classic cartoons, my friend Andrea Ippoliti (also known as Duck Dodgers) has a fantastic blog dedicated to the golden age of animation . His blog contains a huge archive of screenshots and posts about cartoons from the period between late '20s and early '60s, with occasional articles about more recent stuff too. Many rare, impossible to find, or even banned cartoons are presented there with the large number of high quality screenshots. I collaborated with Andrea in various occasions (also did a caricature of him) and since the beginning of September, I became a team member on his blog.
