Let me introduce my dad. He aspired to be a cartoonist when he was a young man, and developed a good deal of skill at it. Though he only published a couple of panel cartoons, he continued scribbling long into adulthood, which in turn inspired me in this humble effort.
I think he had a good design sense. Here’s a piece he did as a teen:
I’ve been sort of laid up with some kind of strange flu; cramps, fever, and digestive problems, but no respiratory involvement, thank goodness. I hope to take a break and get a buffer built up. In the meantime, I think I’ll mooch off my family.
This picture was drawn by my son, who is presently in Madrid blowing trumpet with his school band.Watching me draw once cracked him up, much like I did when watching my dad draw. I don’t think he’s going to pursue cartooning (who really knows?), but he’s got some talent.
