He was obviously a fan of the Muppets in his later days.

He visto alguna pintura más de cuando Picasso estaba por ver crecer las flores desde abajo y también metía blancos/grises de esta manera.

Sí, lo había entendido eso, pero lo que me llamó la atención fue una manera de pintar que me impresionó en otro cuadro: "Dos mujeres sentadas", 1958 -no estaba tan cerca de su último día-.

1) I like that he painted almost up to his last breath!

2) QUESTION: Since you've been a cartoon artist since the 1960's, perhaps you know the 1960's gay cartoon artist JAY STUART. He appeared almost as frequently in the "fizeek" mags of the 60's as Tom of Finland. DO YOU KNOW OF ANY JAY STUART ART or INFO ABOUT HIM ANYWHERE ON THE NET??????????? I've GOOGLED his name with zero results.

If ANYONE ELSE who reads this comment can supply JAY STUART images or info on blogs or sites, please please please email me at
stantonhager@verizon.net

Thanks.

Jay Stuart I don't know.

Tom of Finland ( Touko Laaksonen) is incredibly well known and an amazingly good artist. You can find him here:

There are several books by him. I the past I have posted in this blog some of his works.
