As I get older, I'm slowly getting rid of things I don't need. But before I do I'll share them with all you nice people.

I did this?
I'm known for my notorious doodling. In any social or work situation, I draw on newspapers or the tablecloth or post-it pads even while I'm talking to people. I guess it's kind of like how people can text and tweet while doing something else.
Often people will show me something I did while they were talking to me years earlier, and I won't remember having done them. This especially happened when I worked in animation, when people I worked with who read my comics anyway saved my spoor that I just left behind.
Recently, a mutual friend was at the house of Irwin Chusid and he showed them something he saved. It was another situation where I drew on a newspaper and left it behind. I haven't seen him in about twelve years and all this time he kept something I took for granted and then forgot about. I wrote him and asked him about it and was surprised to find this in the mail a few days later.

Much of the material here is at least a generation old and therefore sometimes has racist and sexist standards we wouldn't conform to today. I try, but can't always do a line-item veto. Remember, if something has stereotypes it's posted in spite of them and not because of them. You're not wrong to be offended, think of it like a friend you like hanging out with 95% of the time but once in a while they embarrass you. My own attitude is to move forward.
Many of the images I posted between 2011-2013 were disappeared by the image bank I was using then but I still have most of the scans and am bringing them back slowly. Be patient.
Some people don't realize you can make images bigger by clicking on them or that there are earlier postings beyond this page. Well, now you know. You're welcome.
