Believe It Or Not, These Got Me Work!
Still shoveling through the archives and found these 2 pieces of "art".
Back in the days when I was a young starving artist (as opposed to today when I am an OLD struggling artist), I used to draw up samples to submit to various publications I wanted to work for. Although I look at them cringingly now, they both got me some pretty good gigs. The Gladstone Gander one led to me drawing for Disney for a couple of years, and the Pepe le Pew piece led to work on the Looney Tunes magazine. Good experiences both. I learned a lot, and made pretty good money, too.
So see, young little starving cartoonist, there is hope!
