The Passing of a Legend

Val's hero passed away today.

Ironically, today is also the 20th anniversary of The Cartoonist Guy.

World renowned artist, Arnold Friberg, passed away at the age of 96.

Mr. Friberg had a huge influence on Val when he was developing his artistic style.

A few years ago we were able to see an exhibit of the work he did for the movie The Ten Commandments. The exhibit included the one of the original robes Charleston Heston wore as Moses. There were also photographs and renderings of all the beautiful costumes he designed.

A few years before the exhibit, we were also able to attend an event where he was the guest speaker. It was a wonderful evening where Val was able to meet and visit with Mr Friberg and get his autograph!

Happy Anniversary, Honey! I'm sorry for the passing of your hero.
