I missed posting this on Arbor Day proper, an entry that needs a little explaining -- In an episode of WEIRD SCIENCE Gary and Wyatt get stuck in their favorite slasher film and artwork was needed for the VHS(!) box.

Many moons ago, when my good friend Steve Burbidge was accepted to med school at the University of Minnesota, I had this brainstorm of an idea for a bumper sticker.

Back at the University of Minnesota, there was a West Bank bar called DICK TRACY'S SALOON and we at the MN Daily Creative Department did up ads for them, using my drawings of the Chester Gould comic strip characters. Copyright infringement? Who cared? Eventually the syndicate that owned the comic strip cared -- enough so that the bar's name was changed to TRACY'S SALOON.
