Hey there!
great and very interesting blog!
I was wondering...do you have any Little Golden book about The Road Runner? I'm desperately looking for them on the internet!

i wonder if Josh Agle had this book as a child. The big brush-swipe backgrounds, and the slender minimalist figures remind me of his stuff.

Hi SL - Sorry to report I currently have no Road Runner books. If I come across any I'll definitely post them.
KW - Its possible the Provensens influenced his work. An endless number of artists look to them for inspiration and one can see why!
