Forty Winks

Updated: 3 days ago


Forty Winks. Pen and ink. Originally published in the Daily Pennsylvanian on April 12, 2007.


Again, a pretty straightforward doodle. Our school’s Office of Health Education made best efforts to promote public health through workshops, studies,  events, and awareness campaigns. Mission accomplished — it was impossible to turn a corridor without running into one of OHE’s bright yellow “Ask Us Why” posters (stressing the importance of a full night’s sleep, among other things).


I drew this cartoon after having pulled an all-nighter with Steve and Nancy (pictured in the cartoon) as we prepped for a team case competition. I can’t speak for the two, but I definitely outslept Rip Van Winkle in the days after to compensate… The OHE would have been proud!


This is a scan of the original drawing prior to publication. More about my stint at the DP here.
