Our friend Norma Haimes Martin, famed cartoonist Don Martin’s widow, sent this over:

Norma explained that the head is Don’s nose-picker art from the cover of his book Don Martin Digs Deeper. Norma had the brainstorm of turning him into The Donald and contacted cartoonist Bruce Bolinger, one of Don’s inkers. The rest, as she rightfully put it, is history.
Oh, and in case you missed it a little while back, click here for 13 CARTOONS: A DON MARTIN Birthday Celebration. The cartoons were personally selected by Norma. It’s marvelous — and moving.
