Tom-Tom Artwork  
  February, 1972
Original Paste-Up
  1969 Mast Head
Original Drawing


        In the early 1970's, Tom-Toms were constructed by pasting type and art work onto a white piece of paper. This is the original paste-up for the February 1972 issue. Letters and the masthead are missing because they were cut out for the paste up of the May 1972 Tom-Tom.


Original pencil drawing for October, 1969 Tom-Tom masthead drawn by Jeff Morley.

Andy Arrowman  
Original Drawing, Late 1969

        Felt tip pen over pencil. The Andy Arrowman cartoon strip by Jeff Morley was published three times. Andy was used as the mascot for the original Cub Scout Day Camps in 1971 & 72.
