Abner Graboff Continued
I keep coming across illustrations by Abner Graboff that I’ve not seen before. He was such a talented and quirky illustrator that his work just makes me beam. Just look at ‘Blueberry the Bloodhound’ for starters, how can you keep your mouth from smiling !
Or Please Don’t Feed Horace…. I love the doctor in his pinstripe green suit !
