Beginning Another Sketchbook

Today we begin another sketchbook. I’m unsure on the year. Based on pieces at the end of the book I’m pretty sure that this is from 1997. This page would be a good clue if my memory about its contents were anything other than vague. Mostly it’s my versions of characters from a comic strip collection that I’d read shortly before I did the sketches. Unfortunately I no longer remember the name of the comic strip or where that collection is in my vast library. The series had been originally published in a college newspaper. Beyond that I’m coming up blank.
