Young And Restless

I’ve recently been in touch with Ric Estrada, world class cartoonist and one of my favorite teachers back at Kubert School. Digging through my notebooks from that period I found what I think are notes from his very first “Business Of Art” class. Ric’s first assignment was to execute two drawings: one panel showing how we saw ourselves at the time and a second panel showing what we expected to be.

Here’s my first, a self portrait from life, standing in front of a mirror. Pencil in sketchbook, 1976.

Tomorrow: What 25 year old Rick expected to become!
