Smiling Faces

I don't remember when I drew this, but it was sometime in the late 1980s or early 90s. It could be some sort of advertisement for dental products or services. The spiral binding which also got photocopied is kind of a goofy addition to a random kind of piece. I am pretty sure this started out just a doodle featuring the center subject. Actually, this marks the first time this drawing has seen the light of day, being previously buried in a portfolio. Perhaps I should have left well enough alone.

Danger at the Library

Accidents can happen anywhere. This cartoon dates back to at least 1992. Quite ironically, a couple of years after this was drawn, my son had an accident at a library that required stitches. So this premise is not as far-fetched as one might have guessed. Is there a morale to this cartoon? Perhaps not. But, I can make one up anyway. We can be as careful as we think we can be, but stuff is gonna happen anyway. We shouldn't beat ourselves up over things that we did not bring about on our own. So there.
