glum :( ...and some 'Madeline'







Ludwig Bemelmans was
the MAN!... He created 'Madeline'
and was one of the great old
'New Yorker' cartoonists from
the 40's and 50's!
Here's a great link explaining
a little about his life and art;

I always found his work to be full of elegance, and even a little bit dark and haunting...
Really beautiful stuff!
Here's a tribute to his best known creation, the little French girl 'Madeline!'
Be well, blog friends!
:)
(Oh, and below is an unrelated drawing of a depressed girl with a.... skull balloon?!)

I can think of nothing better to say about these drawings then....

TRE MAGNIFIQUE!!

MY French is just as bad as my Spanish. And both language sets pale to the simplicity and fun or "DAGAN DOODLES"

Thanks for sharing...
