How dry I am.

Moving away temporarily from Gralen and Jeddy episodes to showcase another of my odd, random cartoons.  This one I did probably in the late 80’s to early 90’s.  It’s hard to tell because of my habit of not dating my cartoons.  Maybe I could have them carbon-dated to be sure, or maybe the amount of yellowing of the paper could unveil their age to someone who knows how to read that sort of thing.

Anyway, this cartoon continues the “hot summer” theme of my last posting.  I either drew this cartoon based on all the hot, summer nights I spent as a child(we didn’t have air conditioning.  Not that it didn’t exist, we just didn’t have it) as a way to bear it, or else I drew it to fondly remember those hot, summer days.

Since we lived in Wisconsin(and still do), it could very well be the latter.  Since summer here lasts only about 3 months.

In a good year.


Gralen and the all-over tan.

 With summer on the way – sometime next year probably the way things are going here in Wisconsin – here is one of my “summery” strips.  Notice Gralen’s changing facial structure in the second panel, and also the disappearing towel that he was holding in the first panel.  Don’t know where it went.  Maybe he stuffed it in his mouth and that is why his head looks like that.
