Thought I’d add a small bit of an editorial cartoon i did tonight. This is the now infamous Melissa Click of the University of Missouri. I’m posting this involving producing the art and not the politics.
Inked with a Kuretake brush, she was easy to draw. Coloring even easier. Drawing so many family members who have red, curly hair over the decades, this was easy! So, I include the color version used in the final cartoon, too.
If you would like to see the whole cartoon, let me know below or in a private message and I’ll send you over to my editorial cartoon Facebook page. I’ve kept it kinda quiet, but you can join in, if you would like.
Thought I would share this cartoon I drew in 2009. Many know I’m kinda-sorta an all out book nut. One book espionage series I love is the Vince Flynn series of espionage thrillers featuring, American hero, Mitch Rapp. This cartoon was for my home base for editorial cartoons that was having the author on to promote his book. Each Halloween since, the publishers of Mitch Rapp are so kind as to resend out this cartoon.
Since this cartoon came out, unfortunately Flynn has died. The series is just restarting this week with another author I’m very familiar with, Kyle Mills (author). Mills is great and I’m really looking forward to the new adventures of Mitch Rapp!
Here’s my latest editorial cartoon drawn today reflecting from a true media legend, Shirley Temple. Temple died this past Sunday at the age of 85. We will NEVER see someone like Tmple again. Society won’t allow it, as many other things are censored and not allowed. The cartoon above is speaking to our narrow view of the world today.
Because I keep politics out of the web of this website, this is a pantomime performance of these cartooned characters set up for this week’s editorial cartoon. Feel free to caption this yourself below!
This was penciled on paper, inked the same, scanned and colored.
When worlds collide! – I usually never post any of my editorial cartoons here , or anything political for that matter, on this personal page. But since this is a bit innocuous, I figure I can post this one.
My old pal Ken Culotta and I worked in the past couple hours on some pressing funny business. 🙂 Had some gags to write involving a couple Christmas cards and other work. Another old pal, and fellow high school classmate, Jim Saunders, had joined us earlier.
On UStream for a second day this week and another very productive time was had. Watercolored a wedding caricature, inked an editorial cartoon, inked another cartoon for a client, penciled a cartoon for a client and penciled/inked/watercolor a Thank you card for a friend in the military. All in 4 hours. Hope to be as productive tomorrow on UStream, too! 🙂
Got a bunch of artwork done today in a couple hours. Two editorial cartoons, a bike drawing and the next Swampy’s Florida webcomic.
What if the problems with the TSA could have been seen in the past?
Here’s a rare posting of one of my editorial cartoons here, just cause it ain’t all that controversial. 🙂 That and my editorial cartoon blog is not working right now due to a delayed reaction to a move from one server to another.
The comic strip, Beetle Bailey, turned 60 years old today and some cartoonists on Facebook drew their version of Beetle. Here’s mine.
I drew this at Reececliff Restaurant in Lakeland, Florida, while lunching with my friend, Jeremy Buchanon.
