ASSORTED DOODLES

From top to bottom: 1) Back in my Minnesota script group, often people reading their script pages aloud would describe a contemplative character's action as "kneading their forehead..." I drew a pic of what came to my mind, 2) an easily impressed earthworm and 3) An amalgamated marriage -- I had drawn the telephone-antlered moose and on the same page I'd drawn the cranky old man and, seeing their juxtaposition, I completed the doodle so that the little animal was peering over the fellow's head -- his pet, or his muse... or a parasite.

Death's Head Script Cover

Years ago Scott Nimerfro and I came up with an idea for a feature -- what happened to Ebenezener Scrooge AFTER his visit from 3 ghosts?  Anyway, the title, for about 5 seconds, was taken from the last chapter title in A CHRISTMAS CAROL -- 'The End of It',  Naturally, I felt compelled to draw art for the script cover (a no-no in scriptwriting).  Clearer heads prevailed and we later changed the name -- but the artwork survives...

THE GANGSTER

Drew this while at The Minnesota Daily.  What's funny is it predates Stevie Van Zandt on the SOPRANOS, who looked pretty much exactly like this.  What May Day had to do with it, I dunno...
