The Cartoons of My Aunt Dorothy

I'm Rikki Simons and these are the cartoons of my aunt Dorothy Richards. Dorothy is last of eight children on my mother's side. She helped raise me in the 1970's while she pursued her interests in cartooning. This involved her sending her characters to celebrities and them asking them to name them. Aunt Dorothy tells me she has over 800 characters named by actors, politicians, and other famous people. Here are just a few from that collection. She hopes to collect them all into a book sometime in the future. All photos were taken by Aunt Dorothy. I need to visit her in Oregon and scan her collection professionally, but until then, here is what she has found in her spare room so far.

Also, please check out the GoFundMe I have set up for Aunt Dorothy to help rescue her from possible homelessness: gofundme.com/uvvwdq-my-aunt-dorothy
