John Stanley Would Have Been 100 on March 22nd...

...and I'd be a cad, a bounder and my typically forgetful self if I didn't note this here!

To celebrate, here is a never-before-seen piece of John Stanley art, courtesy his son James. This was a sketch for one of the new pieces Stanley did in the 1980s. As James said in a note to me, "too bad it wasn't finished off in color." I agree.

That said, I always find joy in John Stanley's rough drawings. His pencil line has great energy and character.

Here it is...

With irony noted, this post occurs on Carl Barks' birthday.
