Here's another unclaimed convention sketch. I don't know why it wasn't claimed, but I do know that it was probably drawn around 1990 or so. That's about the same time I illustrated the story, "What's for Lunch... Supper?"
for Walt Disney's Donald Duck Adventures #11.
In the story, Donald develops a massive eating disorder, and grows obese. His nephews try to help him out by sending him to fat camp, with the expected disastrous results.
It was a pretty funny story, written by Tom Yakutis. Unfortunately, I only did the pencils on it. The inking (by an inker I will not mention) was fairly terrible, and the results were awful. A shame, for as I said, I really liked the story.
I've never really spoken about my time doing comics for Disney's short-lived self-published line. Maybe someday soon I will. Not that I have any really great stories to tell, but I really enjoyed working on comics featuring characters I loved my whole life. I finally felt like a "real" cartoonist. The experience helped my gain a lot of confidence as a cartoonist, too.
This is all stuff for another day, though. For now, just enjoy Donald Duck, really fat.
BTW, Donald Duck is copyright by Walt Disney Productions, of course!
