Mabel quick sketches
Comic strip sketches for series of strip featuring Mabel Pennywell.

Here is a rough study of Mabel in her bedroom with her perplexed captives, Bentley and Cato. The series of strips that introduce Mabel are some of my favorites in the book. She is a smart, resourceful and strong character and tough to escape from as Cato and Bentley are doomed to discover.
