I was cleaning up the ol’ office yesterday to make more room for Legos, and ran across some old photo albums and stuff I’d put aside to go back in the crawlspace.
But before I do, I found a bunch of old stuff I thought I’d share.
Here’s a strip I did in high school entitled “Knight School.” (You can click on each image to get a much larger look.)
The first one centers around the main character, Sir Lose-a-lot, and the kingdom’s smart-alecky dragon:
Gotta love all that white-out and Zip-a-Tone, and not a bad gag for a high school sophomore.
Here’s another; a try at a pantomime strip:
The gag is supposed to be that Lose-a-lot can’t hit the center of the target, and that the wizard helps him by magically creating sort of a crosshair thingy on the lance.
Not a very good gag, and the art is only so-so; especially that horse! Good lord!
OK, one last one with the dragon again:
Again, kinda… meh… but not too bad for a 15-year-old kid in small town Iowa.
That’s it for old stuff for now, but I found a bunch more I’ll share soon!

Not bad for a 15 year old? They're actually much better than most of what's in my local newspaper these days.
The zip-a-tone was what made me stop trying for a career in comics back then. Excuse me while I go kiss my Mac.
Isn't that a lyric from a Hendrix song?
No. That's "Excuse me while I kiss this guy."
