Hi all! I'm in the process of reworking dylanstubs.com to get rid of the archaic frames format and make it more search-friendly. As part of this, and after some deliberation, I'm no longer going to be hosting what remains of Stew Grant's picture archive. What I've done is to create a ZIP file containing all of the photos and associated HTML files, and made it available via Dropbox. I'm hoping that some clever and motivated person can take the material and build a new website around it.

The Dropbox link is https://www.dropbox.com/s/26w1sjkrw7jjp ... s.zip?dl=0

Feel free to reach out to me at my regular email address (dylanstubs@gmail.com) or reply here if you have any questions, or if there's any guidance I can provide on building websites. Everything I know, I learned from Google. :)

Thanks,
Mark

The revised site design is up and seems to be working properly. Let me know if you find anything amiss. As an extra added bonus, folks who tend to access the site via smartphones now have access to the full site content, and are no longer redirected to the abbreviated version of the page.

Thanks for your support over the years. Dylanstubs will keep on keepin' on!

Best,
Mark

LOL, I don't know but thanks! I'm especially proud of my collection of Crystal Cat art. If anyone has an original copy of Pledging My Time (CC 383-84 10/26/95 Bloomington) and can scan the artwork, I'd love to get it. I've never seen hi-res art for that title anywhere.

Thanks,
Mark

If anyone has original silvers for the Crystal Cat Milan (CC 981-82) and Hamburg (CC 983-84) 2011 releases and can scan the artwork for them, I will add it to the archive.

Thank you,
