Topic: Comic Book History
Which although most of you know the expression "...back to the drawing board", and also know what a 'Drawing Board' is... I thought I would share with you photos of cartoonists / comic book pencilers / comic book inkers / caricaturists / etc., that I have come across or have been sent in to me to share.
Yes, I only have a dozen showing so far, but there are more to come!
First let me re-print a little on 'Drawing Boards', per the Wikipedia entry:
A drawing board (also drawing table, drafting table or architect's table) is, in its antique form, a kind of multipurpose desk which can be used for any kind of drawing, writing or impromptu sketching on a large sheet of paper or for reading a large format book or other oversized document or for drafting precise technical illustrations. The drawing table used to be a frequent companion to a pedestal desk in a gentleman's study or private library, during the preindustrial and early industrial era.
And that is where I'm coming from on presenting photos of those that have used them in the past, and those that are currently using them, even though the use of "the drawing board is becoming less common"!
Above are just a few of the ones that are being presented.
Plus if you are in any of the industries named above, I'm requesting you to send me a photo of you at your own drawing board for inclusion!
Just click the link to my Facebook Fan Page, and send me a message with a link of a photo of you at your drawing board, and I'll see about including it in that special photo album! It will hold 200 photos, and I invite you to do so before it fills up! And, feel free to send me a link to your web site(s) as well, as I'm happy to mention that also!
Feel free to see the 'At the Drawing Board...' photo album at any time, as I intend to add to it weekly until it fills up!!
Now, it's back to the drawing board for me! (Wink!)
