This thread will be a tribute to my brother, who died this morning. He had cancer. Sam was an artist. Much of his best work came in the form of cartoons and book and record album art.

@edgarblythe,
Oh, edgar. I cannot find the words to express my sorrow for you and for him. The world has lost another talented man, but you are a testament to his life.

He and another fellow developed a daily c0mic strip for the Swedish market. Sam believed it was ultimately rejected because one character was not deemed acceptable in that country.
