2 beautiful, sensitive drawings.
Brian StaufferMarch 22, 2010
So nice. The eyes on Zinn are just so right on the money.
Rob DunlaveyMarch 23, 2010
Applefeld's hat makes it sing.
Hal MayforthMarch 23, 2010
Outstanding, Joe. Your use of color draws the viewer right to Zinn's eyes.
Hanoch PivenMarch 23, 2010
Appelfeld is dead on!

All us old guys wear those hats.
These are great. Can't wait to get my Rethinking in the mail so I can see your luscious cover in the flesh.
Oh darn...I was hoping my security word was "greeklid' or something.

Thanks for the comments.
Randy, when you get your issue the color may look a bit washed out... the editors had an issue with his red nose.

I just want to pinch the cheeks on those old guys, Nice!
David GothardMarch 23, 2010
I'm with Stauff, so much humanity in those eyes. Nice work.

Having seen you last night at the SVA forum, it reminded me to tell you that you should post more often. The drawings are such a pleasure to look at.
Drew FriedmanMarch 24, 2010
These are really nice. I always love your stuff.
Lou BeachMarch 24, 2010
Always recognize and appreciate your work, Joe....top rate!

Haven't seen your work for many years; just realized how much your work has seeped into my caricatures - the spare use of color in particular. Appelfeld's gaze is especially alive.
Great, great work Joe.
