will elder, RIP

I was sad to hear that the great Will Elder died last Wednesday, at the age of 87.

Above is an example* of his exquisite work on
'Little Annie Fanny'; created (along with the peerless Harvey Kurtzman) for Hugh Hefner and Playboy - and recognised as the first fully painted American comic strip.

And here's
his obituary in the New York Times.

*in a French translation, for some reason. Sorry about that.
