Dick Briefer

Now here's some great cartooning! Dick Briefer combines huge contrasts with beautiful compositions, high individual style, cartooniness and a keen observation of the real world.

Well I can find a million things to like about this guy. The way he draws hands kills me, his love of shapes, his dynamic combination of cartooniness with tall proportions - a very hard combo to pull off!
God, every little shape is interesting, yet they all fit into a great hierarchy of an easy to read bold composition.

I don't know much about him, except for these Frankenstein comics and that he's some kind of super cartoonist - a genetic experiment, the Fedor of cartoons.
