Cartoonist's sketch book.

Green "Artspiral" sketchbook with 14 pages of drawings in ink, in various stages of development and with corrections.

One apparently finished cartoon, picturing three WASPy male friends relaxing with a bottle, bears the pencilled caption: "You Call That a Problem? My Wife Makes Twice as Much as That." Other pencilled notes read "[Hi]ding the rawness of my ambition"; "That's when I was militarized"; and "FAX 415-614-2700." Though the drawings are unsigned, Hamilton's wit and style are unmistakable.
