Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| Milkey Says...!!! (from the Frank Archives)
April 02, 2019
It occurred to me that I don't think I have any pictures of Milkey the
Clown available online. He was a character I used to draw back in the
undergrad days. This one dates to circa 1986 or maybe 1987. It was on a
small pad of paper and the yellow was from a highligher, so I think that
was when I was working as a summer intern at Avtron. Milkey is, of course,
a very, very, very evil clown. Most of his deeds are only hints and
suggestions. But evil he is. Evil incarnate! This was around the time
Alan Moore was writing The Saga of the Swamp Thing comic book, and I was
reading it. Anyway, I was able to find a sample drawing and figured I
should put it up. One of his catch-phrases is to say "Milkey Says:"
before making some pronouncement. This was hinting of his eventual
political aspirations and rise to power. He would be preaching hatred to
the masses in a style reminiscent of WWII-era Germany.
I will point out it was all far-flung fiction back in the mid-80s.
I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random
sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes
just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly
scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also
am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated
it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of
people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title
provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind
if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search
engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.
Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox
properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't.
I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background
image, just click on the image.
