"Your fiancé really knows to skate. He seems to feel at home on the ice?" - "Yeah, unfortunately so. And at home he's like ice!"
"Between 1927 and 1929 more than sixty illustrations for ULK, the illustrated weekly for humor and saire, published as additions to Rudolf Mosse's liberal Berliner Tagesblatt since 1872, were made. The sheets, mostly executed in colors and ususally released in full- or double-page size, were often used for the magazine's cover. They show that Dodo truly deserves a rank in art history."
