Autographed Drawings

Photo: I drew Dale (creator of "Brenda Starr Cub Reporter") at dinner and showed it to her. She took my pencil saying I'd forgotten her eyebrows and lips, and proceeded to "improve" the drawing. At first I was horrified but realized, "Hey, it's Dale Messick!", and let her do her thing. Her portrait was much improved. ;0) Little did I realize what she would do next...
Photo: After I drew Dale Messick and she "fixed my drawing up", she then said, "Well, since YOU have drawn ME, I have to draw YOU!". And she did...this drawing was the result. She kindly signed BOTH drawings.
