    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 comics fan.
