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 #80 - Germs!

I did these sketches when I was working for the ad agency 20 years ago. One of our customers was a local hospital and they wanted to do a booklet on germs and infection. They wanted to keep it light-hearted by using cartoons, so I drew tons of them. These are some the germs that didn't make the final cut, but are my favorites. Most of them are evil germs or germs-gone-bad. The family was supposed to represent how quickly infections can multiply. I like it so much I think I'll color it sometime soon.
