    all have info about this artist, the last in Slovenian (again, Chrome can automatically translate), perhaps in addition to what’s pointed to by the first URL. The second resulted from a national stamp in his honor; so, those who read Slovenian can probably find more that Chrome can’t translate. This is the first work by him used here.

    The strip says Date Unknown and oil on canvas, duh!

    I didn’t tell Steve about the date, just the oil on panel change, which the blog entry now shows, based on my explanation as to why. I’m waiting on the date confirmation; but, I’m pretty sure that’s correct as well, again, not that you give a hoot.
