Odds and Ends

This was an illustration for a story on gas economy in the early 1990’s
The town was reacting to a new store built on the rocky heights above the harbor
A business publication needed a graphic showing how bad Maine did vs other states
The Small Business Administration in DC got beat up regularly in the paper

Odds and Ends it says. That’s because I’ve posted drawings without current context. These days the context is Pandemic and Social Justice. I give attention to those themes but there’s got to be more going on. The drawings were printed in a state business paper in the early 1990’s. I got paid something but not much. The paper didn’t have much to pay. A small paper in a mostly rural state doesn’t earn much. Things haven’t gotten better. I draw because I enjoy drawing. Looking at these drawings now I am surprised at the patience I had then. I doubt any took more than an hour to complete.
