Jim asked Sandy about the above comic strip
This strip was something of an exploratory mission. Had the notion to try and develop a comic strip for alternative papers. Lots of them around the country. But I realized I was biting off more than I could chew in that the approach I was taking was way too detailed and precise--I'd never be able make this work for me financial since each installment would take much too long to complete.
But I couldn't quite leave the story alone. The plot centered around a certain fascination I've always had with pirate radio stations and I ended up incorporating that plot element into another comic strip, Bleeding Hearts, which saw print in the OU Post. And I used yet another piece of that story (young fellow stumbles upon a secret alien invasion) for "The Adventures of Harold Mitty, Pizza Boy", a strip that ran for half a year in the Athens News and elsewhere.
Jim asked Sandy about the above sketch
Not much to say about this piece cause all the details are lost in the misty corridors of my memory. Got a call one day when I was still in NYC from a company developing roll playing games, ala D+D. They wanted me to do the illustrations/character designs for the project. It was to have a crime noir, 1930's setting. This all sounded good and I drew up this rough, following a detailed description of the scene. Sent them a xerox (yes, that long ago.) They loved it. Raved about it. And I never heard another word from them or about the project. So it goes.
