I want to wish my good friend, Dave Knatchbull, a Happy Birthday! When we were kids, he and I would talk endlessly about comics and Star Trek, Tarzan, James Bond, Lost in Space and more…and we would draw…a lot. I would draw anything and everything, while Dave drew these characters that he had created years before as a child. Much later, he created a comic strip called Winkles Towers (featuring his characters) that ran for 3 1/2 years in  News4Kids magazine. Not a bad run! I’ve drawn a shabby facsimile of Chubby, the main character, to celebrate Dave’s birthday. No one draws these characters like he can or invest so much of themselves into the characters of Chubby, Fluffy, Chico and Susy like he can. Happy Birthday, Dave!
