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 #76a - The Bible

All the cartoons this week will have a running theme. 20 years ago, when I was working at the ad agency, one of our clients was a local computer company. PCs were very new at the time and the customer wanted ads that pointed out the abilities of a personal computer. Our copy writers thought it would be a neat idea to use biblical era gags to sell the product and they threw the ball in my court to flesh things out. This is the series of ideas I came up with, some used, some not. This first sketch shows what can happen when instructions aren't clear or followed correctly.
