Cartoons and History




I pulled out the markers last Friday to give sketching in color a try. This guy was sitting in the coffee shop with a really loud Hawaiian shirt on, pecking away at his laptop. I think the whole scene looked so funny, that it came out in my drawing. I have really missed those markers.


On another note, I went through my drawings again and pulled this one from the archives:
I just love this one. I think I sketched it from a photo eight years ago. I remember really enjoying the particular shading process; this type just seemed to come easier for me at the time.

I'm off to do more sketching and creating. Are you?

Stay on the path...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE both of these. Best to date. Period. LOVE THEM. Sigh, move here. Teach me to paint. Sit on my porch and paint with me. DO IT.

You're awesome, Jackamo. I can HEAR you saying what you just typed. I really, really want to. I really, really miss you.

I've come to the realization that you just can't re-create our friendship.

Jen - I love the cartoon... and the lady is wonderful too! I love both - the shading is so cool, and I love the colors...

Colour suits you more. I like them both, but the colour seems to capture your own energy a bit more. No wonder you missed them.
