Wow. These are terrific -- especially the last one -- where I found myself thinking about outsourcing. Thanks...
Actually I feel a little remiss. I don't like posting something without at least giving some vague indication as to its origin. On this occasion my computer crashed after saving the images but if you saw the site history on here you'd realize it would take me forever just to find the addresses they came from. But they definitely didn't have any name/artist/origin/year anyway.
