Heartland Magazine: 1st Freeze-Frame

Ta-daa: in 1988 my weekly feature, then titled "Freeze-Frame," made it's humble debut in the Sunday tabloid section called "Heartland" in the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.

All of this early work was actually submitted as laser-prints from a high-tech xerox copier, made off the original (which again was drawn using a Pilot Razor-Point pen, on 8.5x11" copier paper + Zipatone brand adhesive-backed tint film for the shading), using a press-on font for the title text (burnished down onto a piece of cardstock that I used as a template to tape up each cartoon onto). When I was finished with each piece I'd use smoke-signals to let the editor know it was done, and in a couple weeks the mail-carriage dog-sled would deliver the goods.
