Early Art: From Aunt Esther's Kitchen Table

Anachronism, 8 1/2 x 11, Bic pen on typewriter paper,1969

I only have two drawings from my childhood. This one was saved by my Aunt Esther. It was done when I was nine years old on a stormy summer weekend when we were forced to entertain ourselves indoors. My influences at the time were a stack of old Mad magazines and the film "The Planet of the Apes." As if combining Taylor, the Statue of Liberty and a few Tyrannosaurus weren't enough, I've also turned the torch into an ice cream cone.

  1. You were very creative even at the tender age of nine. A nice blend of themes from an era I remember very well.
