Very sad here for the last day or so, since the news came down the line that Terry Jones has died. Monty Python’s Flying Circus was one of the two central formative influences in my creative life as a teenager, and today it proves the theory that the things you love most when you’re in your late teens and early twenties will always be the best things. Monty Python is the best of all possible best thing. Graham Chapman and Terry Jones were always my favorite Pythons, and now they are both gone.
And then there is this drawing, which in some odd way is a drawing of Terry Jones. I didn’t use a picture reference and didn’t really make any attempt to get a likeness, but I was definitely thinking about him when I drew it, and it depicts a character he definitely could have played.
