Here's a VERY early self portrait, probably one of the first things I ever drew using technical pens. Yeah, I was a skinny, odd looking dork that carried all my art tools with me to freelance jobs. Now I'm a pudgy, odd looking dork chained to a computer all day. Like sands through the hour glass . . .

I ran into this poor soul shopping at the grocery store one morning. He got separated from the group he was with, and met me. Lucky me. I loved his T-shirt, so I was compelled to immortalize him.

Wow, I forgot all about this one. I did this one while working as an archive clerk almost 20 years ago. I don't know where the idea came from. It still makes me laugh, though.

Yikes. I don't know what possessed me to do this one. It must have struck me funny, I guess. This is an additional confirmation of the place I have awaiting for me in Hades.

Here's a quick sketch done in response to a tabloid story about space aliens being gay. I can't remember which rag it was, but it said the E.T.s were homosexual because of the numerous reports of anal probes. I can't explain the sandwich thing.

Here's a doodle done on the back of a bowling score sheet from about 20 years ago. It's a self portrait. I used to say "boip" a lot back then. For the life of me, I can't remember why.

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. It's kinda like cartoon Russian roulette, "Di di mau!" I think I'll do this for a solid month, or until I get some kind of constructive idea. Prepare to be amazed, annoyed and astonished. Let the month of goofy sketches commence!
