Tumbledump XI by Adoradora Tumbledump XI by Adoradora
Trying to make some progress on the character lineup for 'Tanglefoot'. Here's Tertigone, an ancient, whiskered woman of mystery; a couple of her equally mysterious companions; Janiveer, torch singer, with Mr. Knees, professional ibis; Barnabette, owner of the Popinjay Dance Hall and haver of magnificent calves; and a few of the moth-eaten gigolos, washed-up hoofers and broken-down aristocrats who dance at the Popinjay.

Indeed, to riff on what joeyalphabet said above about Al Hirschfeld, perhaps if he had gotten drunk with Virgil 'Vip' Partch.  And they met Aubrey Beardsley while being tossed out of the bar.  And then shared a cab with Charles Addams and Ray Bradbury (old chums from way back).

These Tumbledumps are delicious, like those strips of candy 'dots' on adding-machine-style paper strips I used to get as a kid.  So tasty, but with no nutritional value, whatsoever; pure, unadulterated fun.

Thanks so much! Hopefully I'll actually be able to get around to telling their stories before I'm too old and near-sighted and arthritic to draw...
