While I was working on storyboards today, I happened to catch a brief glimpse of the Nixon/Frost interviews from the 70s (the TV was on in the background). I remembered watching the trials on television that summer. No cable and there was nothing else on, what was an 11-year-old to do?
Nixon was one of the first caricatures I ever tried to draw. It was pretty easy, especially because so many talented editorial cartoonists had worked it all out for me.
Anyway, today, when I caught that glimpse of Tricky Dick, I had to scrawl him out on the drawing I was in the middle of. Hopefully, the client won't notice Ol' Milhouse peering into the corner of the frame. Maybe I'll tell them it's another break-in, a whole new scandal.
