In Memoriam

My uncle passed away over Christmas after a mercifully short fight with cancer. He was a good man, a genuinely lovely old bloke, and one I'm ashamed to say I didn't know him better. A family death isn't something I'd normally talk about on the public space of a blog, but it was Uncle Bob that I modelled the look of Grandpa T-Rex on, and even took the inspiration for a couple of his cartoons from, especially his fondness for betting on horse racing (and being very very good at it).

I always thought of him when I drew a Grandpa T-Rex cartoon. I still will.
