Hello Captain Pinkwater. To start off, I just want to thank you for all the years of wonderful books. I credit them with making me the smart, weird, social misfit I am today.

I sure did love The Artsy Smartsy Club, so I created a tiny online tribute to the art that inspired it. The files there are only “a copy of a copy”, but it helps those of us with no art history education learn about the stuff.

I’d be eternally gratified if you’d check it out at

Thank you.

That's wonderful research, and a wonderful page you made. I am especially grateful to have been introduced to the fine chicken art of Alan McNiel (Sleeping Chicken).
