Happy Father's Day

Here's the ol' man posing in his cartoon museum. He must be the biggest cartoon fan in the world! He collects caricatures of himself. The one below is by Dragan (I hope I spelled it right!) The photo on the left of the wall is my Mom when she was a young fashion model.
 Since I moved to LA he had to find a replacement for me so he adopted Missy the cat and is teaching her to box so she can grow up to be a real man like him.
 Whoops, look like she sprained something in training! Thank goodness for rehab.
 
Here's one of my favorite family pictures from about 1963 0r 4.Check out Dad's cool glasses. Mom and Elizabeth are all dolled up too, but I refused to wear my snap on tie that day, or maybe I accidentally soiled it.
Happy Father's day to dads everywhere on the planet and especially, you DAD!

Hey John, I'm learning how to draw P.Blair fundamentals, and I would want some criticism.

This is my first attempt at the Dog used on the head construction page:

Then there was the Three Bears Warner cartoon "A Bear for Punishment" which dealt with Fathers day..

My dad died in 2003, wish me condolences..here's to mine!

James Robert Smith said...

Very cool! He really does look like an old-fashioned kind of dad. The kind produced from grinding glaciers and rusty gears.

In that last photo, your dad looks a bit like the cartoon version of Bob Clampett in the "Beany and Cecil" cartoon show

Mr. K., are you sure that the best way to express yourself on the internet is still via a blog?
