#DailyInks #9 – Now a Week Ahead!

by on Nov.10, 2015, under Cartooning

2015-1109-DAilyInks

Have a bunch of work to do this week and spent a couple hours to pencil and ink more than a weeks worth of Swampy’s Florida cartoons this evening to get those out of the way.
 
To speed things up, I try to make the art smaller, by drawing two to a page.
Inking done with Prismacolor brush, PITT soft brush and a medium Pitt pen.

July 2nd, 2015 – My Color Version of the Creature in the Woods!

by on Jul.02, 2015, under Cartooning, Swampy's Florida

Here’s the color version of the drawing I posted last night!

Trilby is strolling through the woods to a picnic and is bothered by an intruding alien & his transportation device. The lone extraterrestrial inquires as to the nearest burger joint. Trilby points the way to the The Burger Inn, though, in truth, he’s not quite sure where he is at the moment.

July 1st, 2015 – My Inking of a Creature in the Woods.

by on Jul.01, 2015, under Cartooning

I’m grounded for a bit and getting as much artwork out as I can. Amongst the cartooning done tonight included the next few days of my daily Swampy’s Florida daily celebration cartoons. This one was fun! The fun of aliens is that you can make it up as you go along! grin emoticon

I’ll leave a shroud of mystery as to what this creature might be celebrating Thursday. Tomorrow you can see the color version over at Swampy’s Florida or I’ll later share it here.

I’ve been having fun creating a continuous story linking the celebratory daily cartoons into a story. The fun is trying to figure out how to link each day together!

June 15th, 2015 – Trilby and a bunny!

by on Jun.16, 2015, under Cartooning

2015-0616-TrilbyBunny

Trilby and a bunny! You can see the color version over at Swampy’s Florida later this morning.

My rugged schedule of the past week and a half has finally caught up with me. Was in a meeting Monday night where I just kept feeling sicker and sicker and couldn’t slip out. Made my way home and crashed. This proves that I’m not in perpetual motion, despite what people say.

January 16-17th, 2015 – My While-U-Wait Valentine’s Day cards!

by on Jan.20, 2015, under What's New?

2015-0116-MollyAinsleyJulie

Here’s Molly and Ainsley with Julie of Julianne’s Coastal Cottage and their hand painted cards!

 

After knocking out hand-made, watercolored Christmas ornaments this past Christmas, Julie Pointer,of Julianne’s Coastal Cottage in Mount Dora, brought up the idea of me creating similar Valentine’s Day cards. We set a date and that was this past weekend. It was supposed to be three hours on Friday and three hours on Saturday. Turned out to be Friday through Sunday and I turned out to be exhausted.

2015-0116-TrainArt

Love drawing trains and this one covers all the items this fellow mentioned. I didn’t get his name, but will tomorrow when he and his wife come back to have me paint a few more cards for them.

My main goal was to harken back to the days when we, as young folks, exchanged well illustrated Valentine’s Day cards with punny sayings.

Most of the overtime was catching up with requests. Some that even came through Facebook.

All were inked and watercolored while folks watched. I used a Koi portable watercolor set to add color.

2015-0117-Cards

The photos are all requests for the various names noted on the cards.

December 3rd, 2014- My annual Christmas card artwork!

by on Dec.03, 2014, under Illusration

2014-1203-Christmas2014-Inks

My annual Christmas‬ card of ‪‎Florida‬ native critters inside The Ivy House in Ocala, Florida. Used lots of reference for the interior of the 1890 house/restaurant and had to skew things a bit to make the image more readable. Also,used more reference than years past for the critters. I tried to limit the animals a bit so that the interior of the building could be better felt and understood. I finished inking this Monday.

The Dorris Bobber Memorial Palmetto Bug is hidden somewhere. You’d need to see the actual card to find him, though.  This is the first year Swampy, Trilby and Zuber of Swampy’s Florida appear as part of the illustration.
