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 #63 - Shiot

This cartoon is probably one of the more disturbing things I've ever done. About 5 years ago, a website called Shiot Crock had an online cartoon submission thing. The catch was that you had to use 4 randomly selected words or phrases in your cartoon. You got the 4 words by rolling 4 virtual "DaDa Dice". For my submission, my 4 words were PANTS, STUTTERING, HUNGRY DOG, and SWEATY PALMS. Most folks actually incorporated the 4 words into their dialog, not me. I still don't know what guided my hand on this one.
