FRANK STACK. "Foolbert Sturgeon's
Cartoon Club" (1990).
The "old crank" Foolbert Sturgeon
(nom de plume for Frank Stack) tells you how to
become an editorial cartoonist, demonstrating in several easy
steps hpw you can turn simple peanut and banana shapes into our
beloved former President Richard Nixon. Cameo appearance
by Popeye! Actual, practical advice appears in tiny boxes
as you learn to draw Tricky Dick. The bottom line joke
about the next decade's drawing lesson involving a "prune"
shape is an ageist reference to wrinkled President Ronald
Reagan. Perfect original page for a cartoonist or serious
