Portrait: Don Rosa

These images were drawn by Don Rosa, the most popular of the currently living artists drawing Donald Duck comics. I have met up with Don many times at festivals all over the world and he has become a friend to lean on when the hustle and bustle simply become too much. His ability to always have his pockets stuffed full of self-produced and very strong pepper fruits can liven up any dinner.

The images were drawn three years apart, during which time I got rid of my ponytail. Both portraits were drawn at the Book Fair in Gothenburg - in 2004 and 2007 respectively. The latest is going to be the basis for a interview in comics form, based on a conversation with Don, which took place in 2007. This comics interview will be drawn in Rosa's style by Jimmy Wallin and published in Bild & Bubbla.
