Según pasan los días

As days go by

A pesar de los envíos diarios de Oscar y debido a una especie de vacaciones, este blog permanecerá sin movimiento por tres o cuatro días, quizás menos Luego de algunos ajustes en la residencia temporal, actualizaremos y seguiremos publicando desde allí durante un mes, seguramente con algunas interrupciones por diversos motivos relativos a esas vacaciones.
Recuerden especialmente visitar los blogs personales de Oscar: Grillomation, Boludalia, Oscartoons, Klactomation y como así también su divertida colaboración con Chips Hardy.
Además, en la sección archivos de la columna de la izquierda pueden ver mes por mes, todos los dibujos de este blog desde su creación: cuatro años y medio ¡con más de 1.800 publicaciones! Mientras tanto y a modo de divertimento vaya esta muestra retrospectiva y animada. Saludos.
El editor

Even if Oscar will continue his mailing of drawings on a daily basis, because I am taking a vacation this blog will remain without postings for three or four days, hopefully less. After some adjustments in my new temporary residence, I will update the blog and I'll be publishing more or less regularly for a month. It all will depend on my travelling arrangements.
Meantime I recommend you visit Oscar's other blogs: Grillomation, Boludalia, Oscartoons, Klactomation and his entertaining collaboration with Chips Hardy, The Full Story. In addition, in the archives on the left you can see month by month all the previous drawings of this blog: already four and a half years old and with more than 1800 postings!
As a bonus, here is an animated retrospective sample. Greetings.
