Tie One On
I remember this kid at school teasing me about drawing all my characters with bow ties. I grew up on Hanna-Barbera shorts and just assumed that ties, cuffs and hats were essential elements of the cartoon character. Well, many years later I'm putting the finishing touches on this puppet, Ralphie, for my 3 year old and something's missing. Yes, the bow tie. My crutch, my friend and the last piece of the puzzle. This bow tie is for you Mr. Barbera. Rest in peace.
