Some OLD cartoon Strips





I've decided I had better not post NEW cartoons since I'm trying to sell them to magazines...a legal thing.

So I've decided to post some OLD cartoons.

TOM THUMBS is a cartoon strip I tried to get syndicated a few years back. I wanted to create a "Ziggy" like character that had a tough time getting through life but kept on pluggin'. I wanted him to live in a world where anything could happen. Like in the cartoon shown above; he takes a "normal" elevator ride, but ends up on the bridge of the Enterprise.

I recieved a few postive comments from the syndicates, but alas, no takers.

Anyhoo, I've posted a few now and more later...in color even.

I ain't been browsing, Dave, a busy summer. An old post, but new to me; these are hilarious in a way I love. Besides the great drawing, what an ability you have to be funny. It's funny how some people have it and some don't. Best for the autumn!
