Finding myself in a sentimental mood, so I'm posting WWII Navy cartoons imagined aboard PCS-1402, a wooden patrol craft. My dad did these to pass the time - between typhoons and action - while in the South Pacific. The entire high school football team was drafted just after graduating. Because he is not sentimental, the deterioration is due to the scrapbook being stored in an old dresser in the garage for 3o+ years. Although nowhere near professional level, I was a bit taken aback when I discovered it because he had never taken an art class nor gave an indication that he ever possessed any sort of artistic inclinations whatsoever.
From the time I was about 4 years old, every Sunday morning he would ask if I wanted to 'study the funny pages', so I suppose he helped teach me to read and appreciate comic strips :)
