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 #106 - Parachute Tester

Okay, I didn't post anything this past weekend. To make up for it I'll post a couple things today and two more tomorrow. This first cartoon was done to illustrate a story about quality control. Back during WW2, it was rumored that the women manufacturing and packing the parachutes for the Army were so confident in their craftsmanship that they would be willing to test the chutes themselves before they were sent overseas.
