Cartoons of the Past
All artwork by Bob Price
This is a 'Cartoon' history...as it is; there is little rhyme or reason; nor continuity in these efforts. There was never a conscious effort at a connection. Actually, most of my cartoon work began as a side-bar to other efforts. This was the fun stuff born of doodle's and jokes and the kind of stuff little boys are made of...we won't go there...but, inside every grown man remains the boy...and sometimes I can connect with him...these 'toon's allow me to remember him.
Very early cartoon strip idea...starring 'Dude West'
I began drawing these Coupes about 1958 and stayed in trouble in school...

An Army Correspondent and a 'catfisherman'
Here's an idea that helped to get immediate results from City Hall.
Sometimes simple ideas work best.
I called this 'cartoon strip' Invisible Government and published it on the back
of a single page underground newspaper; which I distributed myself. The paper
was quoted on the front page of the local daily newspaper; and certainly drew the
attention of the City Father's of Amarillo who eventually fired the Chief of Police
following a botched murder investigation where the murderer was turned loose after
sloppy police work; and he wound up killing the sister of a good friend of mine before
he was apprehended again and eventually put to death by the State of Texas. I would like
to think that this $40 project helped bring about those results.

Transparency for T-shirt Art; and Ed Asner steps down as Lou Grant
