All Time Favorites - Spit Ball

Spit Ball, another one of the All Time Favorites. I drew the "spitball" first, but when I started drawing it, I had no idea what it was, even after I had finished it. Was it a big ball of lint? A snowball? Crumpled paper? A craggy extraterrestrial planet? A fuzzy star? I had no idea. In these cases, of not knowing, I take the sketch and I throw it in a file with dozens of other unnamed sketches. There it sits for a few days, weeks, months, or years -- occasionally I'll leaf through them, and I might suddenly get a line for any of these orphaned drawings. I don't know how long it was, until I looked at it again -- and saw a SPITBALL ABOUT TO HIT ME IN THE FACE!!! CM Evans Cartoons
