What's all this, then?

Since I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to do with this blog right now, I've decided to post some of the strange doodles and drawings I've kept in boxes, folders, and cabinets these past 30 years. A lot of these things were done while on the phone, or while testing pens, or out of sheer boredom. There won't be any rhyme or reason to these drawings. I'm just grabbing stuff from off the piles, scanning it, and adding it here. Think of it as a game of cartoon Russian roulette. The neat thing about the drawings is that each one has it's own history and background story. There will be plenty of bonus posts and topical additions as the mood strikes. Forewarned is forearmed.

Goofy #60 - Gemini

Today's sketch is more of an artsy-fartsy thing. When I was kid I was absolutely enthralled by the US space program. I just loved (and still do love) anything related to space flight. I'd spend hours and hours researching and drawing all the spacecraft. What made that possible is that I built scale model kits of all the various spacecraft, so I got to know them inside and out. This sketch is a study for a larger drawing I did back in 1987. It's a sketch of Astronaut Ed White spacewalking during the Gemini 4 mission.
