    Good thing he’s a singer, and not an artist!

    Super original concept. Simple, clear and direct: Fragile nature needs help. About mail Seven-47, Unill this day, we thought a singer and songwriter like Ian, IS an artist…no? Everybody’s taste is different, but above all, don’t forget the purpose and the intention of the drawing!

    My wife has the Monterey Pop ’67 poster done by the Beatles. It’s not exactly a masterpiece, either–but that isn’t the point.

    It’s not what the piece is showing or even its artistic merit–it’s who did it. It would be as if one found a Beethoven doodle in the margin of the E-flat concerto or something.

    Give the guy a break–it’s for charity. And who among us wouldn’t take it if we could have it for free?

    Can anybody shed any light of ‘Caramba TV’?

    The point of this is what?

    Anyone? Anyone?

    Dear Stupid Cranberry Series …
    The ‘point’ of Caramba TV is to possess humour and fantasy to enjoy it! Your echoing ‘anyone’ make the wrong impression that it is hard to find such people…Try a little sugar, cranberries are hard the other way.

    Dear ECMT

    Many thanks for your explanation. I can now try to disregard how pointless ‘Caramba TV’ is, and get on laughing myself silly over it!!

    Hilarous. Anyone agree???

    Anyone? Anyone?

    A little wonderful drawing, as innocent and touching as it is clever, from an artist, a gentle man and a good soul. Thank you Ian. (and by the way, thank you all DP for every note)

    Cranberries never observe …

    You can step in the shoes of a traveller yourself on ‘Caramba TV’. It’s surprising to watch those bizarre spots and absurde things. Provided with the witty comment it strange and funny!Still not for you? Only one solution… a culinary series …Cranberries on alcohol? CHEERS !!!

    Cranberries never observe…This column is not about ‘Caramba TV’, but about drawing-comment.

    Well, de gustibus et coloribus non est disputandum… but I like this pic.

    A great vocalist and a wonderful star, but what a disappointing drawing. Why not give a sum to the charity and do a drawing from your children? (Sorry Ian).

    Tech-Athenaeum says:

    Peraps he gave a sum already, this stays here anonymus. But that way is easy. We think the more publicity for the purpose, the better. The drawing calls the attention from the people on this matter.
    By the way,we love the drawing!

    Cranberries always observe………………….no solution required!

    Well if its anything like ‘drawing a butterfly’……………………we are screwed!
