Above: I drew this guy walking along, and Barbara took the pad from to add in the poor fellow getting walked on. Silly, I know. But it kept us entertained.
Barbara Dale is one of the pioneers of the alternative-style greeting card. A prolific professional, her work has appeared all over the place, and now she's creating children's books!
At the recent NCS Reubens weekend, it was my pleasure to doodle a couple of "jam" drawings with Barbara. It wasn't planned or anything. We just each had a pen and and a pad and we just started doodling. Natural enough for a couple of people who draw all the time!
Here's what I mean:
Barbara drew the above woman ...
And then I added the fellow on the left. We both drew more hair and then the nest. If I recall properly, Barbara added the extra touch of the bird excrement.
Barbara then drew this fellow, above, eating a large steaming ... uh ... thing, with a schnoz the size of a Buick. After thinking for a moment, I drew up the gag, below.
I like the Hot Dung salesman saying, "My best customer!"
