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 #91 - Game Show Hostess

About 12 years ago, the company I work for attempted to break into the educational CD ROM market. We delivered a lot of text-based content peppered with sounds, video and animation. It all looks very crude now, but back then it was cutting edge. I was able to do a bunch of cartoon characters that appeared here and there on the disc. One of the characters was a Vanna White type game show hostess. I made a ton of sketches and a handful made it onto the disk. This image is a scan of an old wax-print proof, the only sample I have from that project. Of all the hostess sketches I created, the few that were selected had to have the tops of their gowns redrawn to show less (more like NO) cleavage. Go figure.
