Just when I think I've mined every last gem out of my original Today's Inspiration scrap files, I discover another treasure. This time its a 3 page humour piece from a 1958 issue of Weekend magazine (which was, for several decades, inserted into the weekend editions of many Canadian newspapers) illustrated by Duncan MacPherson.
You may recall that MacPherson's work for MacLean's magazine was the focus of a recent post here on Today's Inspiration.
I suppose this series was one of many additional freelance assignments the popular cartoonist took on at the time. Frankly, these spots are absolutely gorgeous, filled with interesting details, amusing character types and beautiful, delicate watercolour painting. I've extracted every single spot so you can get a really good look at them all. There isn't a dud in the bunch. Click each image to see it at twice up. Enjoy!
