Doofus oil painting by his creator Rick Altergott



I consider Rick a friend and I was extremely happy that he took the challenge to do a very big oil painting of the beloved Doofus "team" and on top of that with me and my wife presence on the painting (over the fance). For who don't know Doofus here are some quotes from fellow artists about Rick Altergott:
reference to a couple of quotes:
Daniel Clowes: Rick Altergott is the unsung genius of American comedy.
Gilbert Hernandez: Just when you think the inspired madman has deserted our culture for good, along came the king of them all to show us how it's done.

They also created the comic book 'Raisin Pie', which is published by Fantagraphics. Text (c) Lambiek
