This week, we have a lovely piece of artwork from the archives:
A haunted house — right up my alley! We have a ghost, a couple of bats (or are they crows?), a squiggle that might or might not be a black cat, an owl, a mysterious face in the dormer window, and what appears to be a banana (but is no doubt supposed to be the moon) floating in the sky. And what scary thing did I draw inside the house? Let’s unfold it and see!
Aaaaaaaiiiiieeeeeee!!! It’s my name! Oh, wait, that’s not very scary. Not even when it’s upside-down. And so once again we see why I didn’t do my own artwork when I was doing comic books …
Don’t forget to vote in the Scene of the Month poll for August!

That’s actually a really nice drawing compared to my “early works” (which were a lot more… unicorn-filled). And I think the message being sent by the younger you is pretty clear. “Jim” upside down is “wir.” Wisconsin Immunization Registry?!?! Nooooo!!!!!
this made me laugh out loud. Loudly.
Love the Owl! WhoWho… Jim?
As you may have noticed, I love kid art.
This archival item has the additional interest of featuring an actual bit of blurry blue ditto ink, a true archaism which Road Show people would probably pay big bucks for now.
