    Description

    Roy Carling Football Coach Preliminary Original cartoon (c. 1950s). "Here's a new play that'll catch our opponents napping," says the coach, while his players doze off in a flurry of snoring. Here is a conceptual rough of the sort that a working cartoonist would produce by the hundreds or thousands every year, hoping to sell some editor on paying to publish a finished version. Michigan-based Carling (1918-2009) was better known as a prolific cartoonist for regional farm-and-ranch magazines, such as the Central Ohio Breeding Association News. Pencil on sketchpad stock. Image area, 6" x 9". Advanced age-toning. Good condition.
