But two things remained consistent. He loved staying up late at night to create his art, and he always loved to cartoon.
Sometimes I would sit beside him, watching him rapidly sketch one after another on a pad of construction paper, typing paper. .it didn't matter. .he would even draw on the backs of greeting cards, and on envelopes. Our phone book was always one of the most creative in town! :-)
So it wasn't unusual for me to find a cartoon waiting for me beside my cereal bowl in the morning.
Sadly, I don't have much of his artwork. For one reason or another, it is mostly gone. I have a small fraction of the cartoons that he did for me, and one oil painting. I also have an envelope of drawings that he did when he was in high school, back in the late 30's.
