wow. wow, wow, wow.

Will Kirkby, you totally rock my world!!! It is wonderful and humbling to find someone who can paint Vern and Lettuce ten times better than I can! :-D Look at those moles on the Routemaster!!

I am so happy I almost don't know what to do with myself. I think I will go run a Chinese fire drill around my apartment block and whoop so madly the neighbours call the guys at the Maudsley hospital.

The unfolded A4 sheet came with this pink label appropriately stuck to it, and he made this drawing on the packaging. (For the boat and jacket reference, go read Will's The Sea comics at chamonkee if you haven't already.) Awesome.

Haha... I hope you are addressing that one to Will, not me! :-{D

i've been there one time and came back with a trauma. i never thought you can swerve like that. or tilt the bus to one side, OVER the sidewalk

That's beautiful work! I love the bus detail. But Lettuce does look a bit like a glove puppet...

Oh! I want to make Vern and Lettuce glove puppets! Good thinking.

I'm glad you like it so much. The original failed attempt is on my wall at home. and now I look at it Lettuce does look a little too static, I'll have to work on that.
