“Fred 006”, one of my first “all-over” drawings from 1992.

Fred 006
[“Fred 006″…]

In 1992, almost six years before the very first business-card cartoons, I drew a large, 24″x31″ inch drawing named “Fred 006”. Its owner, an old advertising buddy and early supporter of my work, Rich Johnson took some close-up photographs of it, to give you a good idea of all the detail involved. An old fashioned dip pen and a single, large sheet of 2-ply bristol board, and that’s it. Nothing more. Epic.
