Round The Bend in Eighty Days with S J Perelman
I received a great contribution from fellow Searle fan James Burgess who realized that the 1972 Perelman/Searle collaboration was not for Travel & Leisure magazine as I assumed in this post but for The New Yorker. The depiction of the famous humorist traveling with his buxom companion were not part of the 'Nostasia in Asia' series but for a piece called 'Round The Bend in Eighty Days'. The illustrations however remain unpublished as far as we can tell since the series featured the work of another illustrator.
Jules Verne laughs at Perelman & friend's attempts to emulate Phileas Fogg.

Animated Molesworth update!
More on adapting Searle's style into animation: London-based animation director and fellow Searle fanatic, Uli Meyer, has news on his 'Molesworth' feature - read it here.
Uli did the illustrations for the new 'Molesworth' book (above) proving if anyone can match Searle's style he can! (from Korero Press and now available in the US).
Check out Uli's proof-of-concept animated piece below.
