The guy on the right looks as if he had an old burnt sweater on his head.

That's a good description Luis.

The era of really long hair, I suppose. Fascinating.

We were a hair band before it was called hair band. Too bad mine wasn't good hair.

Guy buys a killer tiki shirt and no one bothers to tell him the shoot is in black and white.

Hi Jim, thanks for checking my page! I used Photoshop to create that illustration. I'm exploring with this program to create more works (caricatures and BGs). Best regards.

Hi Jim.
I didn't find another way to let you know that I really liked a LOT your amazing work with the Rauch Bros. on the Danny & Annie cartoon from the Story Corps series. It was a very beatiful story and your art was full of expresions and give another dimension to the whole story. Congrats and I'm glad to see work from you again.

Thanks Mike. Thanks Carl. The show is on PBS if anyone wants to see but I am not sure when it's on. It's based on writings of Studs Turkel who also wrote the "Good War" about WWII, very good book. I flew through that one and didn't even move my lips while reading.
