WOMEN OF SUBSTANCE BY REVILO

Cover

Back

This is not a book in my collection.  I found it on my wife’s bookshelf.  However…

This is a gift book from Hallmark.  Revilo is a pseudonym of Oliver Christianson.  Revilo is also “Oliver” spelled backwards.  Cute.

His Wikipedia page states that he has worked for both Hallmark Cards and “Penthouse” magazine.  Quite a stretch.  However in this post we are looking only at the cartoons from the above book.  Sorry.

The Cartoon Fiend has a great blog on him.  It includes an interview which answers about every question you ever thought to ask Mr. Christianson.  Probably a few you didn’t, also.

Hallmark has a site with cartoons and animation.  Also plugs for products.  Imagine that.  Best of all, however, is this screenshot.

Thank you, Hallmark.

There is a short bio on the back flyleaf of the book:

And some accolades on the front flyleaf.  A few warnings, also.

As usual, google has several of images all things Revilo.

Here is another blog.  And from that blog:

The Drawn Blog is your daily source of inspiration for illustration, animation, cartooning, and comic art.

Either link will get you there.  Cartoons, and some animations.

Revilo has a linkedin site in which he says he went to Cal State, Long Beach, where he got a BFA in Illustration.  He worked for American Greetings 1982 to 85 as a Senior Writer.  He has been with Hallmark Cards as a Master Humor Artist from February 1986 to present, and plans on retiring July 31.  I am assuming that that will be July 2013.

Here in his own uh, words, is what he does for Hallmark.
