A short noir comic parody featuring detective Marlowe ? a wisecracking, hard drinking, tough private eye adored by women. I was planning to make a full sized album and painted this to prepare, to find out if I can make it looking noir and how much time will it take. I like the result, but I also realized I won't find the time and courage necessary to do the whole thing. At least not until I retire ;)

The joke is very hermetic and I expect very few people being able to understand it completely, many may find it strange and/or not funny. Everyone can appreciate the pictures though :)

There is also an animation showing painting process for one of the frames. See it on youtube.
