Book Report: Scapa's Clowns

[post 347]

Clowns make great subjects for paintings, but what I like about the clown cartoons of Scapa is that you get the clown in action — perfect for a physical comedy blog. I discovered these over thirty years ago, at the time in the form of a coffee-table book, which has long since gone missing. I hadn't been able to find a copy since then, but was thrilled when my sweetheart Riley surprised me with a new (smaller format) edition of it for Christmas.

Here are a few of my favorites...

This last one Fred Yockers and I used in one of our publicity brochures.

There are 12 days to Christmas, so it's not too late to get this for a gift! You can find this on the various Amazon national sites and elsewhere, so shop around for the best price.
