Jim Korkis writes:  [One of the few things not covered in Pinto Colvig's amazing book are samples from Colvig's comic panel for United Features Syndicate that ran in the San Francisco Chronicle in 1922, Life on the Radio Wave. It ran for three to four times per week from March 26 to August 26.   While we think of radio as a form of entertainment, in these early days, people were building homemade radios to be used as a cheap telephone substitute as well.   Maybe Todd's book will increase interest in Colvig and some clever person will gather all those now public domain comic panels for a book. They should also look for the cartooning Pinto did earlier for the San Francisco Bulletin.]

I have no idea what this book is worth but I figured that some of you would want to know that it exists. (Thanks to Michael Golberg and to Jim Korkis for the heads up.)

Help Needed

Theme Park Press is currently working on a collection of never-released-before interviews with artists who worked on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. We need volunteers to help Theme Park Press' owner, Bob McLain, transcribe as quickly and reliably as possible the hundreds of hours of interviews. Could some of you help? If so, could you please email me at didier.ghez@gmail.com?

The unstoppable Bob McLain, owner of Theme Park Press, is working on a re-release of Jack Kinney's fascinating autobiography. More soon. That publisher deserves a medal!

This just in from Norman Tveit:

[A vintage Donald Duck poster I don't think you've seen before. Less than five in existence.  It was created by Al Taliaferro in 1941 and produced by the U.S. Government in 1944.]

A Horvath drawing being sold on ebay at the moment. Way too expensive for me.
