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 #2: NEPA Chorus

The T-shirt design for today was done for my niece Sara for the regional high school chorus. They wanted shirts to express a certain attitude but still seemed "cute". I went with a sort of Watterson-eque kid, without being a blatant Calvin rip off. I tried to render the thing as loose as possible, yet still make it silk-screen reproducible.
