As some of you already know, I had a very brief "career" as a comic artist waaaaaay back in 1981 (though my sole assignment, a Dr. Strange inventory story, never saw print... thank God!). I walked away from art as a profession not long after but I still put pen to paper from time to time.
Howyadoin kindly scanned some of my work for me when Koop and I visited him in Vancouver a few years ago (and some of those pix can be seen here) but he was barely able to scratch the surface. Since I have temporary custody of my nephew's scanner, I decided it was time to preserve more of my silly scribblings for posterity. Hence, this thread.
Two things to keep in mind as you poke around in my virtual attic. First, most of these sketches were drawn in ballpoint pen with no preliminary penciling and are quite small. Second, I have a short attention span so few of these are what I would consider "finished." As for content, there's tons of sketches of Marvel, DC and original super-characters but it's the random (and wholly inexplicable) musings in the margins that I have the most fun with.
And that's what I'm posting to start with, cartoons that have no purpose for existance other than to entertain me. Like this one.
Enjoy... and be kind!
I summon the archives!
