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.

T-Shirt Week #1: Bait 'n' Tackle

This week on The MadWorld, it's T-Shirt Week! All week long I'll post designs and art of t-shirts that I've worked on recently. First up, Bait 'n' Tackle.

My nephew Tommy asked me to design a logo for his inter mural flag football team at the University of Scranton. The name of the team was Bait 'n' Tackle. That clever name needed a clever design. So I did a sketch of a can of worms, with one of the worms wearing an old-school leather helmet and striking the classic Heisman pose. Now that I look at it, there are some things I would have done differently (the shirt was white on cardinal red), but this the art as printed.

(Micron pen and brushpen on drawing paper, scanned in Photoshop, converted to vector and imported into CorelDRAW for text and layout.)
