The Right Brain-in-Training

The Right Brain was "born" in February 1999 with the first issue of Wright Engineers' monthly news. Each issue since has featured a construction industry-related Right Brain cartoon.
If the Right Brain was born in 1999, then it was conceived nearly 25 years earlier when a much younger "Right Brain-In-Training" sketched a collection of cartoon athletes called "Verbs" (men of action inspired by the PBS TV children's show The Electric Company). .

The drawing above by the 9-year-old Right Brain shows a Verb basketball player doing what the Verbs do: winning and making it look easy.
The young Right Brain (below in black shirt) poses toolbox in hand with his dad, Leo, a carpenter and general contractor, and younger brother Darin (now a chiropractor). A slightly older Right Brain (at bottom) demonstrates the entry feature of one of his many prototype engineering projects.
