This again is part of my Artist Hero series. Here is Basil being swallowed by “Lena the Hyena“. I also included a few of his inventions from his book¬† The Culture Corner. I was lucky enough to get to know his son Money Wolverton, who is an amazing artist in his own right. I produced a show of Monte’s artwork at Blue Line Arts in 2014.¬† wolvertoon.com
