I 1982 besøgte Marianne og jeg Gilbert Shelton og hans forlag Rip Off Press i San Francisco. Jeg fik lov til at kopiere Gilberts skitsebøger, som her for første gang slipper ud til offentligheden, sammen med kopier fra de motorblade som han startede med at tegne til. Vores fotos fra turen følger også med. Gilbert bor i dag i Paris. Afsnittet er del. 1 af 2.
In 1982 I was the editor of ” The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers” in Denmark, and visited Gilbert Shelton (and Fat Freddy’s cat) in San Francisco. “Rip Off Press” was of course one of the highlights on the tour and I was lucky enough to be allowed to copy Gilbert Sheltons sketchbooks along with drawings from the motor magazines where Gilbert started his carrier. The sketches are hereby published on the internet for the first time together with photos from the trip. Today Gilbert lives in Paris. This is part 1 of 2.

Walking from Gilberts house to the "Rip Off Press" we came across this interesting vehicle most certainly left by "The Freak Bros".
