Take a peek over Jim Borgman's shoulder

I know the intent it good, but this doesn't quite look like it's honoring him; I know the man had a heavenly voice, yet this kinda looks disrespectful . . .

I think the caricature is very well rendered. I like the idea of drawing Pavarotti in black and white and portraying the heaven scene inside of his mouth in color. It reminds me of the Wizard of Oz when the movie morphs from the black and white opening tornado scene into the color dream sequence. It's an anology of how his voice brought color and life to our drab, boring lives.

This is why, in spite of the repetitive and unamusing political jibes, Jim Borgman is a cartooning genious. I can't say I was a big fan or that I ever saw Pavarotti in concert, but I have admired his talent and what seemed to be approachability. How many big stars come to town and make friends with the local hat-maker?

Every picture of him shows a larger than life personality, a warm, classy, friendly man with a golden voice. I think the cartoon expresses that perfectly and I think the man himself would have appreciated it.

Lovely tribute.

Is there any chance we might get a tribute for Madeline L'Engle, the author who inspired many, many young people?

yes, her book "Wrinkle in Time" is a classic!

The cartoon makes Pavoratti look like a billboard and he's selling or pitching Heaven now a commodity?
Also the eyes closed is not flattering.
A bust of Pavoratti on a full size harp with strings vibrating amidst the clouds, eyes open and smiling is what I see.

music from heaven; heaven's hues, as opposed to corporate america's colorless, bland, 9-5 uncreative (and dangerous) schemes

I hope John Lennon is singing his "Why can't we all get along?" song in heaven
