Fred Hembeck/Jack Davis


Cartoonist/blogger Fred Hembeck and I have a lot in common. In fact, there are times HIS childhood memories seem more like MY childhood memories! Finally, however, comes an area where we differ-Jack Davis. Longtime readers will recall some of the earliest posts here at the Library were about the great Mr. D and his all over the pop culture landscape art and influence. Well seems Fred was a bit more of a latecomer to Davis appreciation. You can read about his early experiences over at http://www.hembeck.com/FredSez.htm. Not that the king of swirly knees needs a plug from me but it does give me an excuse to run this little seen Jack Davis movie poster from about 25 years ago!
