THIS POST IS SOOOO LEFT-OF-CENTRE. Been feeling angsty lately and haven’t been posting that much. I was rummaging through some very old files and found one of my very old doodles for a character I was building on (and I was in my late teens, I think), based mainly on what I was feeling. I think I started the doodles back in the mid-80s. This is one of them, in all its pencilled glory: BARNEY BARNES, the main kid character in a series of three books of cartoon strips. I pretty much felt I WAS Barney Barnes.
