As I was mulling over what to feature this week I found myself stumped. Almost any artist or topic that follows a week of Al Parker illustrations and Barbara Bradley's stellar commentary would come off poorly by comparison.
And to be honest, the last few weeks have been a bit overwhelming here at TI headquarters -- even with Barbara's much appreciated guest writing last week. I need a little break from researching, scanning and writing these longer, multiple image posts every day.
So how do we follow a week of Al Parker? Why, with more Al Parker, of course!
I have a handful of Parker illustrations left over from preparing last week's posts and I'm going to present them chronologically one a day - without commentary - for the rest of this week. That'll be a nice way to decompress.
