The Curmudgeonly Parachutist

I was going through my books, and I came across one of my favorites; a book of Richard Guindon cartoons.
He had a wonderful design quality to his drawings, and his line work always amazed me with its paradox of looseness and precision.
I grew up reading his cartoons in the Minneapolis Tribune that I read in my school's library.
( We lived in a tiny farm town, so my folks only got the town paper, once a week, and the St. Cloud Times, everyday. On Sunday, after church, I would run to the drugstore to buy my comic books, candy, and whatever Sunday paper was left, so the library was my only guaranteed source of Big City cartoon work).
Here is a drawing inspired by this great cartoonist.
