This week I posted my 100th End Strip on Patreon (actually, 102nd- I mistakenly gave a couple of strips the same numbers). End Strips are short comics drawn in a vertical format on random strips of paper, usually ones trimmed from larger sheets by my daughter Rebecca for some school project or another. These have tended to fall into a few main groups: drawings of celebrities from my various clippings folders:
David Chelsea is watching: Alien
starring Sigourney Weaver.
(These came from my ST folder: from the top, Richard Strauss, Lena Stolze, Adlai Stevenson, Rod Steiger, Jean Stapleton, Woody Strode).

nude figure studies drawn from the YouTube series Croquis Cafe:

Patreon does not make it easy to click through and read the End Strips as a series, because they are interspersed with the other stuff I have posted. Just to be nice, I have painstakingly assembled all the links to all the strips posted so far in one place. You’re welcome:
