if you are not already familiar with the British Television series called The Avengers, allow me to give you a small preview into this very popular and frequently copied series about a pair of British Secret Agents from the 1960s. Wikipedia refers to the main characters The Avengers initially focused on Dr. David Keel (Ian Hendry) and his assistant John Steed (Patrick Macnee). Hendry left after the first series and Steed became the main character, partnered with a succession of assistants. Steed’s most famous assistants were intelligent, stylish and assertive women: Cathy Gale (Honor Blackman), Emma Peel (Diana Rigg), and later Tara King (Linda Thorson).
I would not hesitate to name Diana Rigg as John Steeds best and most memorable equal of all his associates, not to mention my personal favorite.
Here they are for their first adventure practicing with epees and banter. Their specific relationship seems to be more that simply partners much more familiar than co workers.
I have no explanation for this publicity photo I does not do the series justice. Dame Diana Rigg played a large part in selecting her own outfits and watching her was a major part of my enjoyment of the series. In an interview she did mention the restriction of showing off her navel similar to I dream of Jeanie.
Very strange publicity still from a unique tv show
About four years ago I had just about resigned myself to go unfulfilled and my most treasured fantasied would go dark. I had this strange impulse to expose myself (figuratively speaking) and share my most embarrassing moments and feeling with whoever stopped by. I did a blogger thing until I offended and broke that last straw and was dumped. I then moved to WordPress for the last three years. I never even thought about blogging I assumed that the blog thing would be a mostly private affair kind of like my sisters diary.
Well I have just passed my third year on WordPress and amazingly enough may even pass 1 million total page views. This seems like a lot to me, ever try to count past 1000, it just takes too long. unfortunately I just may have stayed in that damned closet too long and I no longer have the energy to even goof off. Unless I get a new infusion I may just have to admit defeat and swallow that bitter pill, I am thinking 9mm but am not really sure yet.
I know I have posted two Endart Pamalee strips but I can not help myself, I Like Em! I have enjoyed the antics on Endart’s Pamalee for many years and always like her getting what for. This is an exception to the rule and Pamalee dishes out.
Here is another holiday themed strip from Endart that I don’t think I have posted yet.
Either bobbing for apples or maybe hot crossed bun …. soup?
It was nice of Endart to give me permission to post some of his work. If you like please visit http://www.endart.com. I know this is a little early but I love Halloween and there is no time like the present. A scary tail from Endart featuring Pamalee one of my favorite spankees.
Wanna see something really scary?
I don’t know why but this particular post of old B & W drawings got the most views original date September 23 1012. Since I am running low on new ideas and material I thought I would show them again.
As I said last time
Simple line art, I find that I appreciate these even after all this time. I can not draw myself and am unqualified to evaluate the relative merits of any of these. I can now admit though that I like them a lot and share them with any one that may be interested. If you want a copy of this collection just leave a comment and I will see that you get them.
