R.I.P Harlod LeDoux

I just learned that long time Judge Parker Artist Harold LeDoux has passed away. LeDoux was the artist on the strip for an incredible 52 1/2 years!

Here are a couple of nice examples of LeDoux's Sunday strips. Sam hasn't aged in 52 years!  The late Eduardo Barreto took over from Ledoux when he retired and I took over from Eduardo, succeeding him when he became too ill to continue. You can see from these examples JP was also a pretty copy heavy strip, but LeDoux kept your eye moving with good black placements and a slick, bold brush line. I am now in my 6th year on the strip and will soon pass Eduardo's time on JP, but I seriously doubt I'll even make it half as long as Mr. LeDoux's tenure--Goodspeed.

Judge Parker Process

A little JP process from an upcoming Sunday Strip. I changed the date to 7-12 on the final as I made that mistake finishing this Sunday up in the wee hours of Thursday night. We've had a few weeks away from the Driver/Spencer road trip and been concentrating on Needy and her new business venture and a possible new romance interest--which might complicate an old romance interest. What will the outcome be? In the grand tradition of the Soap Strips tune in and see via your paper, or if you must, on Comics Kingdom. This gave me an opportunity to add some dramatic blacks to this week's strip. In July you can see it in color and read whats going down with Mark, Needy's old flame.

Camp Hill Plein Air

I posted a big Blog  over on my Philadelphia Plein Air Painters blog on my participation in last week's Camp Hill Plein Air out near Harrisburg. It was a lot of stress at times but also fun and this weeks I sold a few of the paintings I did-yahoo!
