This is one I just ran across and colored.  I drew it about 23 years back, before I'd ever thought of Bloomenkraft, but it's definitely an ancestor of his.

Psychiatrist cartoon

Sometimes Bloomenkraft is a psychiatrist, in keeping with his reputation as a Renaissance man.  Also, I seem to have a lot of psychiatrist gags here on my desk.

Invent the wheel cartoon

This strip introduces Professor Ursula, Bloomenkraft's assistant and sometimes foil.  Just imagine a grown-up Little Lulu working for Benjamin Franklin.

First Post — Mad Scientist Cartoon

Hi, and welcome to the Bloomenkraft blog.  Dr. Bloomenkraft is a generic scientist — chemist, physicist, astronomer, biologist, even a physician sometimes.  He's an attempt at syndication that hasn't gotten off the ground.  Anyhow, this is the first sample.  I'll try to add them fairly regularly.  Comments are welcome.  Oh, you can click on the drawings to see them full size.
