Happy New Year.

Spence-1:1A, originally uploaded by Cartoon Diary.

A new year and a new blog. Just what the world needs. And what better way to begin a new blog than by using someone else's work?

Today, and I hope for each day of the new year, I'll post a page from MGM animator Irv Spence's cartoon diary for 1944. These images are scanned from xeroxes an incalculable number of generations removed from the originals. Apparently, no amount of shoddy reproduction can suck the life out of these drawings or dampen the spirit of commitment to a New Year's resolution.

It's something to try to measure up to. Enjoy.
