Boomers ! ... Never
got over the Good Old Days?
Hey Old-Timers ! ... Still fuming about those Disasterous Years?
Hey Kids ! ... Didja visit the Web Site?
are some of my comic strips from the late 1960s/early 1970s ...
Looking back, I'm glad I kept my tongue planted firmly in cheek !
My Cartoon strip "Tommy th' Bopper" appeared
in the Harvard Crimson student newspaper three times a week for 2 or 3
semesters in 1971 and 1972 ... until I ran out of ideas!
(Many Crimson writers are now opinion leaders in America & the world.
I am now a sociologist, which is opinion enough for me!)
Check out the sequence where Tommy
Alligator living in his toilet ! (14 episodes)
... or the sequence where
the cartoon characters
go on strike against the cartoonist ! (7 episodes)
I also did cartoons for the
Harvard Lampoon from 1969 to 1973.
(Many Lampoon editors went on to fame & fortune as TV & movie writers.
I went on to Grad school!.)
Here are a few of them ...
Turtle Blues (1969)
Rhinos (ca. 1969)
Heavies (ca. 1970)
Yancy an' Clancy (ca. 1971)
After college, I went to
the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for a year (1973-74).
I continued cartooning and also learned printmaking
(silk screens and etching). This was during the height of the
conceptual art movement, and sometimes I gave away prints on
the street in front of the art museum or gallery openings ... or L-stops.
I thought this might be a concept !
Harry and the Cockroach (1973)
The New World (1974)
