I had a blast

I just returned back home from CTN Expo, the other day. I have to agree with Sandro Cleuzo, CTN Expo 2023 - its 15th edition already - was one of the best, there's no doubt about it. A million thanks to Tina Price and her team, I had a marvelous time, very, very much.

Mickey Mouse

Off-model-ish. However, I think it captures the pure essence of who he is, a drawing.

Donald Duck,
for real

This is the opposite of an off-model Donald Duck. Actually, it is an overly on-model one, overly on real-life-model.

Prince Hamlet

Halloween is just around the corner. So, this is an older drawing of a weirdly looking mouse or rat wearing a low-end Mickey Mouse costume, in a sort of a Prince Hamlet pose.
