Here is Professor Nimbus visiting the gargoyles of Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. I've spent some time in some of the places visited by Nimbus in this series of prints (I worked as a printmaker in Paris before I moved to NYC and became an illustrator). I haven't been back for years, and miss these places very much. This scene in particular brings back a lot of memories to me.
These prints fulfill several purposes. They give Nimbus a break from the pestering telephone in the Zen of Professor Nimbus
comic. They allow me to live vicariously through his travels. They also help to clear my head, giving me a mental vacation from my assignments.
