Archive Inspiration, 01

These envelope doodles were inspired by some of the Jim Tyer and Dan Gordan comics that Kent Butterworth so generously donated to the ASIFA-Archive.

Thanks Kent!

I can't get enough Tyer work, thats for sure! I must have gone over the comics Shane posted on Cartoon Retro a million times and I never get tired of looking at them.

There were so many great animation artists working on funny animal comics at this time I hope somebody is compiling a book about their work. Actually I'm surprised nobody is just repackaging and reprinting some of this stuff like the DVD companies and old public domain cartoons. Great all ages cartoony material like Milt Stein's Supermouse is almost completely absent from the comics market. Comics could be popular with kids again, if someone would just do it right!

Oops! Sorry for the long rant! I get carried away sometimes. Great envelope doodles! Thanks for all the inspirational posts lately!

P.S.- The new issue of the Comics Journal has reprints of old Kurtzman comics including one of his funny animal Pig Tales comics. Just thought I'd let you know.

Hey Chris - I can't get enough Tyer work either! I look at the comics Shane posts too - over and over and over....

I'll have to check for that new issue of Comics Journal - thanks for the heads up!

Make your comments as long as you like - I enjoy reading them!
