Truth be told, it was less about 'cool', and more about comfort, with his simian reach and all. But with the money he made on the idea, he never went back to the circus again. Cinderella story.

This is the first time the Illustration Friday word relates to a finished cartoon in my arsenal. So, since its already done, maybe I can take a little break from jumpin through hoops. heh heh. Hope you like.

Yep, diggin' into the archives again to buy more time. This drawing dates from about 1993. I had an idea for a series of cartoons based on the history of ridiculous inventions, and this drawing was one of them. Somehow I tied it into that theme but forget now what the original joke was. The invention series seemed like a good one at the time but it proved to be too difficult to make the ideas funny back when I was still learning the ropes. I didn't have too many winners in that batch but I always kind of liked this drawing so I saved it. You may recall the gag I posted early on of the outhouse at Niagra Falls, that was one from the same series that actually worked. Well, I didn't know how well it worked till I showed it to my brother and he just cracked up. Turned out it was a hit on the blog, too.
Anyway, nowadays I pretty much save every little scrap of a gag idea, hoping to make it funny eventually, but back then I tended to trash anything I didn't like, so most of that Invention series is long gone.
As always, your comments are greatly appreciated! Thanks for tuning in. -Ted
