Serendipitously the creators of the Baldo comic strip also honored Gus today.

Thank you for posting these, I didn't know this artist. The ones in colour are fabulous. Sort of a mix between Walt Kelly and Hank Ketcham.

Denis,

As far as I now, Arriola was indeed trained at Disney around the same time as Kelly and Ketcham (and Partch and Shaw and Moores, etc..)
