Long Live Dedini

Elton Dedini, another great illustrator/cartoonist, and inspirational artist died a few days ago.
For those who were not familiar with his work, here's a meager sample; he drew and painted over 1200 cartoons for Playboy.

Wonderful drawings!!!...These guys leave enormous empty holes in the places they vacate...

I met Rowland B. Wilson,Divito, Jorge Gin and Kiraz...They were true gentlemen and great artists, they are sorely missed!
