Shoe by Jeff MacNelly

I came across a pair of Shoe book collections that covers the first two years (1977-79). I thought I share some of the strips.



I've always admired the late Jeff MacNelly. He had a killer drawing skill and the laid-back attitude in his writing that just made him a fascinating cartoonist. These early strips are miles beyond what the current team is churning out now.

I was glad my paper carried "Shoe" in the 80's at all.

As cartoon characters go, it is always interesting to me how they evolve pretty much unnoticed until they are viewed in the rear view mirror. I, as a cartoonist, find it a bit comforting to see how the illustrations of the same change.
