Title Drawing; John Falter; Cartoon
Object Name Drawing
Description Three three cell cartoon strips drawn in pencil and pen. In the top strip, drawn in pen, it appears the artist is yelling down "Anybody Home?" In the next cell "Huh" then in the third cell you can see the head of one of the stick figures peeking out from a door in the ground and saying "huh-unh"

The second strip, in pencil and pen, features lower case letters a and b standing in front of a fancy upper case A who is saying "Do you Alice take thee bostwick . . ." Behind these figures repetitions of the words "folks" above all of the figures is a church window. In the second cell the lower case a says "I do." In the third cell the lower case a and b are running out of the cell and something (confetti?) is showering down on them.

In the third strip, all in pencil, the lower case letters a and b are embracing in front of a stove and it appears that something is burning. B appears to be saying "It's okay Honey just a chop" and a is saying "But-sob-your boss for dinner." In the next cell an upper case B is standing next to a car in front of a small house with smoke coming out of the window. Upper case B has question marks around his head. In the third cell the lower case a and b are embracing again and b appears to be saying "It's okay Honey . . . just fired."
