Hi Steve

The artwork on these Pet Annual stories has been lovely. Something I wouldn't even have known about, let alone seen, if not for you.

I'm glad I'm not the only person who thinks the artwork for these strips is really nice. It's different to what we see today and some might find it old-fashioned, but there's a quality to it that means it deserves to be seen.

Add me to the list of those who really like the artwork on these stories. Wash painting is sort of a lost art. The artist here goes almost photo-realistic in some panels; it's reminiscent of those great "Grand Hotel" strips from Italy.

I totally agree with David, the art is sooo good.

Thanks for sharing all of this with us.

Oh, and happy new year!
