One of the signs of a healthy
animation studio
is the amount of 
gag drawings
being passed around.

Or it's a sign of a
miserable studio
filled with disgruntled artists
but either way

plenty of funny doodles.

Most of the time

The Dean we speak of is
venerable animator
His move from the big city to 
White Plains
inspired me to draw a

One day I'll post more
