Cartoonist Hunt Enerson has been busy updating hiw website, Largecow.com and has added somne some news about his band The Hound Dogs, and added a new Phil Stamp Gallery featuring his First Day Stamp Covers.
“Phil Stamp Covers are colourful cartoon First Day Covers for [the UK’s] Royal Mail postage stamps,” he explains. “First Day Covers are printed envelopes that carry the stamp sheets, with special franking by hand stamps, and are produced in limited editions for collectors.
“Phil Stamp Covers have produced covers for a number of years, based on cartoons by J. Edward Oliver (Jack), a great cartoonist who sadly died in 2007. I remember Jack’s work in the old music paper Disc; I admired and copied his work when I was a teenager. The Phil Stamp logo on this page is Jack’s drawing. So when I was asked by Steve Oliver, Jack’s cousin, who runs the business, to be first a guest cartoonist, and then to take over Jack’s position as House Cartoonist, I was both delighted and honoured. “
• Colouring on Hunt’s work is being done by Steve Oliver. To see the full range of Phil Stamp Covers, including J. Edward Oliver’s and those by a wide range of guest cartoonists, visit the Phil Stamp Web Site.
