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 #100 - Flyin' T-Squares, Version One

To celebrate the blog's 100th Goofy entry I'm digging up an old project that I've decided to refurbish. When I was fresh out of school, I was trying to decide what I wanted to do. One of my thoughts was to do freelance art exclusively. You may have seen some of my earlier efforts to establish some sort of identity for the business. This idea was based on the Flying Tigers AVG Squadron from WWII. I imagined the logo to be like nose art you would find on old bombers or painted on the back of leather flight jackets. I thought it was pretty cool that Flyin' T-Squares sounded close to Flying Tigers and this was my first attempt. It has original drawn artwork combined with computer graphics done in on ancient computer art program called Arts and Letters. This is a scan of the original pasted-up mechanical. More work in progress (versions) to follow.

(Rotring art pen, Rapidograph pen, scanned with computer text added, pasted-up and stated.)
