Some of you are familiar with a mediaeval humor series I have had published occasionally, HUGO. I've been working out that cast of characters for most of my life.
Age 13, year 1975, wasn't a happy time for me; it was downright harrowing. It was at that age that I did these drawings of various precursors. Like many budding cartoonists, I was more into "concept" and "publicity" sketches than actually finishing stories or films.
A major, major influence of the time was the Van Beuren cartoon PIANO TOONERS (1931), which my friend had a Super 8 print of. And I was obsessed with the name "Shamus". Here they are, sans apologies:
