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 #97 - Ken O'Brien

I know it's baseball season here in the US, but I can't help what I snag from the pile 'o' drawings. The subject will help date this doodle. Back in the early 80s, the NY Jets had Ken O'Brien as their starting quarterback. He had some pretty good years but he was never a superstar. Once back in that decade (85 I think) the Jets jumped out to a sizzling start for the season. Then the wheels fell off and the Jets just barely made the playoffs. A lot of folks laid the blame on Kenny O'Brien, so I guess that's why I did this drawing. Note: I think the hand that's holding the football is another left hand . . . dumb-ass kid artist.
(Felt tip pen on drawing paper.)
