My First Published Cartoon

My First Published Cartoon

I post this picture every once in awhile as inspiration for those who’d like to draw a cartoon, but believe they can’t.

I’m not saying that everyone can draw a cartoon. But when you look at the early material of many cartoonists — mine, anyway — you’d be reluctant to say with confidence, “This artist will definitely learn how to draw one day. More or less.”

I believe I earned seven dollars, fifty cents for this.  I probably owe them change.

(note that my style has changed, but my signature has stayed the same. I remember working on that signature in elementary school. It took time for my skill to catch up with it.)
