"HEY OSCAR WILDE, IT'S CLOBBERIN' TIME!"



...shows you how slack I am, really nice guy Steven Gettis invited me to join his fabulous website "Hey, Oscar Wilde, it's Clobbering Time!" years and years ago.  The site features drawings of great fictional characters from literature (or great authors OF literature), done by illustrators and comic book artists.  I told Steven that I'd love to contribute, and would be sending him a drawing of my favorite character from literature, Jacob Marley.
About 12 years (and a lot of guilt) pass, with Steven patiently nudging me every few years.  Well, I've finally found the time to send Steven a drawing of another of my favorite fictional characters: Addie Pray, from the novel "Addie Pray" by Joe David Brown (or better known by it's movie title: "Paper Moon").
Thanks for your considerable patience, Steven.
Please visit the fabulous site and gawk at all of the great artwork:
