Illustration Friday: Visitor






Normally I do not re-use art for Illustration Friday. This weeks is an exception.


If you see the white-out and paste-up marks on these, you've guessed correctly that these are old.


really old.


Like, I was shopping these around to cartoon syndicates, and getting favorable comments and a possible shot at newspapers, when another cartoonist had this other idea about a kid and his stuffed tiger.


Needless to say, his won out.


But I still think my strip idea, called 'Out There,' stands the test of time. I based it on the obvious idea of aliens coming to earth.


Only they have virtually no invasion force, and can't even communicate well with the locals.


I wanted to say something political with the strip, and have fun too.


I thought it fit well with this weeks theme. Those of you who remember Bloom County will see a similar delivery in my pale comparison.


Enjoy!
