    To the left of the guy in the purple jacket at the middle right. Admittedly it’s a little arbitrary, but he seemed most in the spirit of the original Waldo to me.

    Thanks a lot, Strob! Not sure why they’ve combined them all, but I’ll take it. Appreciate you instigating the favorable computer glitch.

    Thanks! I’ll keep everyone posted if/when there’s a paperback.

    Hi mabrndt,

    I would say that most of the strips have appeared here, but I tried to include a few “deep cuts” from the early days that you’d probably only have seen if you were following the blog.

    Hey, “That Is Priceless” fans! It’s “That Is Priceless”’s 10th anniversary! And in honor of the occasion, there’s a brand-new ebook collection out there on the streets: “That Is Priceless: Best of the Decade.” Shown above, and available right here:

    https://www.amazon.com/That-Priceless-Greatest-Masterpieces-Slightly-ebook/dp/B07VMV5ZKP/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=that+is+priceless+decade&qid=1564364538&s=gateway&sr=8-1

    For your $2.99, you’ll get more than 300 of the most popular Masterpieces of the past 10 years, plus a bunch you probably missed or forgot about that I just felt like putting in there. That’s like 88 cents a laugh. We haven’t seen prices like that since the ‘70s!

    So grab yourself a copy, or go nuts and give one as a gift. And if you’re so inclined, please leave a quick review. They tell me those are like gold in the ebook world.

    Enjoy!

    Steve

    P.S. Please pardon the promo. Back to the strip tomorrow!

    Dear That Is Priceless Faithful,

    After last week’s banishment scare, I just wanted to officially welcome mabrndt back to the strip. Also, for those who don’t know, earlier this month, mabrndt completed his original goal of researching 1000 – count ‘em, 1000 – different artists, and is still going. His contributions to this strip are as immeasurable as my (and I’m sure, all of our) appreciation for his efforts. To mabrndt!

    (best viewed by Google Chrome, with Google Translate added to chrome://extensions, which can automatically translate most pages as necessary) has info and links that point to info about this roughly jumbo envelope size painting. See Other versions for strip coloration image.

    all have info, or links that point to more info, about this artist (the 3rd in Russian; again, Chrome can automatically translate), perhaps in addition to what’s pointed to by the first URL. This is the first work by him used here.

    Again, a larger strip image is shown by clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s MASTERPIECE #2157 (March 12, 2019) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment.

    P.S. Thank you Steve, for reposting this for me, and Czarka, for alerting me to the situation. I really appreciate it!! Hopefully, if you wish, you can read my comment on future strips at my profile
