Plastic cup art #5

This one was killed after I started on the pencils. If you read it, you'll see why.


  1. So, was this a gag between you and the writer, a suicidal gesture by the art director/editor, or was it actually approved and then killed later by the client?

  2. Your guess is as good as mine. I followed the script when I drew it but after I submitted the pencils for this and one other strip the job vanished into limbo. Next time I spoke with the art director (several months later) he was employed elsewhere. That chronology suggests that your second theory might be close to the truth but I really have no idea.

  3. Holy shit that was good! Thank you for sharing all of these. This project has been so interesting to see. Now I just need to find a way to get one of those cups....
