Unearthed From The Catacombs Of Greg

Here is a fresh batch from Greg Ingram, nice stash and a very good vintage.

This is Dicky Dunne.

This is Peter Eastman.

I think this is nobody in particular it's more about the gun gag,
I probably did it for Dick Dunne. These 3 are from the Lucky Luke era.

This one is a self portrait.

Jack Petroushka

This is Lynette, of course the dress wasn't that loose but we all wished it was.

This is John McLennahan (spelling???)

This is Pauly Maron.

This is Ros (Marsh)

This is Rodney Brunsdon, I've got a few of him but they're all
pretty similar.

Not sure who this is, it could be you Arthur, as a soul
singer, or it could be just a soul singer, because at around that time
a friend of mine organised a soul party and I designed a ticket for it
and some people from Hannas came along.

This is part of a background crowd scene, from a Popeye cartoon, all I can remember is that this was a disco scene. Possibly the Valentine special???
Anyway, Don animated this scene and drew some of us as crowd characters.
From left to right, Paul Maron, Janine Dawson, Don MacKinnon, Sebastian LaCosta and the guy who worked in layout but eventually left to play the doctor character in "A country Practice".
Shane something...??

This is me as a Jap soldier, Don drew this but I don't recall the reason.
Hey Don, any hints?

Louie Garcia drew this back in 78, I recall he took a great deal of time over it and would not show it to me until it was finished. Unfortunately, the scan I made did not match the quality of the original. Best I could do though.

Jack P. by Arthur
Don captured a truly historical moment here. It was, if not, my very first hangover.
I dragged my sorry arse into work that morning, grabbed a coffee, then Don drew this real fast.
As seedy as I was feeling, I was nonetheless almost proud of this initiation.
One that I can sadly say, I have never learnt the wisdom from.

.John Burge,
but I cannot recall wether Don or I drew this.
This drawing of Rodney was already pinned up on the wall at Hanna's the day I started there.
Don probably drew this in 76?

Mr. Cooper faxed this drawing to me back in the mid 90's
This was of course, for no apparent reason, just a random drawing sent by fax.

Third Batch From Murray

These were all drawn by me (Arthur) but I had forgotten about these as well. My memory is crap. Fortunately, Murray "The Elephant" never forgets, so I posted his direct quotes straight on to the drawings.

"Your impression of my school uniform and general lack of demure. The accuracy is astounding and I left it in colour because of the red stitching that I used to repair my Levi Californians for all those years."

"Return to the scene of the crime. Me in Ron Hilton's office but this time during work hours. I had to leave this one in colour because of the chocolate induced pimples."

"More drawings from you for you. This one is about me being tired I think. Do you remember the cleaner, Ishmal? He used to call me plum eyes for some reason. Still not getting enough sleep to this day."

"Me in my work clothes (the only set I owned)."

"I wore my "yaks wool" top for so long that it kept my shape when I finally removed it at night. So the story goes."

A Wonderful Contribution From Lynette Jones

These drawings were previously posted on Facebook, so with Lynette's approval, we are now posting them here as well.  Now, these were drawn during a time at Hanna's when I (Arthur)
wasn't there.  So, gimme a hand with further information about these drawings.
That includes you Lynette!  Anyone can  just write in on the "comments" section, then I'll edit them back into the post. 
In the meantime, I'll put in the info I have so far.
Here goes the first batch:

Dunno about this one, but it looks like a Don drawing.
Help me out here.

Well, I know this is about Sadie and some African American Sub Mariner but as to the the argument with Lynetee in the picture.?????
Again, a Don drawing perhaps?

Lynette ( reading, "Under Sinkwood" ) and Ellen Bailey, by Janine

O.k., Lynette, Don and Renee out to lunch? By Don of course.

 A classic Lynettee pose, but I can't place who drew this, cool drawing though.

Chris and Lynette, I think Mackinnon drew this.

This one's by Simon fer" sur"!

Lynette by Janine Dawson no doubt.

Rodney Brunsdon, but I don't know who drew this killer drawing.

Second Batch from Murray

Alas, yet another load from good ol' Muz. 

Some of these brought on heaps of flashbacks for me, Murray's steel trap and razor sharp memory however, 

soon brought light to  events from the past.

This is the first drawing I have to send you from a reasonably long list.  This drawing is one of the few I have from Rick Tinschert. I think it's pretty self explanatory if you know the character involved...

This one is from Greg Ingram. 

I can't remember if this guys name was Andy Thorne or Thore. Rough as guts guy but a heart of gold and oh boy! could he sure draw. 

Showing up to the International Frizbee Championships decked out in intimidating regalia.

I think I drew this over an H.B. key  of whatever I was working on at the time.

Murray's opinion of Irena Slapzinski. 

I was given a scene of hers to inbetween where Popeye arrives at left of screen holding a hundred suitcases that's the first key. The second key drawing has Popeye standing in the middle of screen next to a bus. All the luggage is piled onto the top of the bus. That's it. She did two drawings to tell the whole scene. I added the inbetweening grid into the image at the time you did the drawing and I still think it belongs there.
