Drawings, paintings, and indecipherable scribblings 1970-1982

A portrait of Mr.John Terry Thompson, Jr., who was born sixty years ago today in Anderson, South Carolina, and without whose love, parental skills, and genetic material, this blog would not be possible.
You might well ask. I was born in 1968, and by 1970 I had passed through my fecal-mural phase and done my first recognizable drawing (a rabbit head inside a balloon--possibly inspired by the Mickey Mouse balloons seen at fairs and parades, but that's just speculation). Over the next 11 or 12 years, until my work turned to crap as I hit my teens, I amassed a vast body of work. Unlike most folks, I still have almost all of it, thanks to the efforts of my late mother. Now, through the miracle of modern technology, I'm going to share it with you intermittently, until it becomes apparent that nobody cares, or I get bored, whichever comes first.
(born 1968) American designer, cartoonist, and comic pusher, perhaps best known for appearance in HATE #15. Married w/two dogs. No tattoos, multiple scars, but none notable. Suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.
