The Mad Penciler started as margin drawing on high school math homework. Later compilations were made as little zines for family and friends, mostly as Christmas gifts. The Mad Penciler sees things differently than other people and has a wonderful time teasing Mergatroid, long time friend and stick figure.
Megatroid was named by my 6th grade students back in the day when I used stick figures to portray concepts during lessons. I had introduced them to the term “Heavens to mergatroid!”that was exclaimed by a popular cartoon character from my childhood, Snagglepuss of Yogi Bear show fame.
Stay tuned because doing this sketchbook has spawned more Mad Penciler ideas that are now possible in the digital world. The Mad Penciler and Mergatroid have also been featured in the zine Plumbago produced by the Erasable Podcast group.
