DailyInks-BunnyWelcome-WatercolorPrep

All inked and ready for watercolor!

This newest painting is set in an exclusive area of Brevard County in Florida. Thanks to, my friends, the Cronkhite family I was able to take photos in the area. I used those to construct this illustration. More to come!

The finished painting can be seen during the 4th Anniversary open house at The Knowledge Exchange December 4th in Palm Bay, Florida.

#DailyInks #16 – Inking #cartoon of Uncle Sam and baby!

by on Nov.17, 2015, under Cartooning

2015-1116-DailyInks-BabyUncleSam

This is inked version of an editorial cartoon I’m working on for a client. The cartoon involves a baby being read to by Uncle Sam, as requested. This is a revision of an earlier cartoon. The original had three well known people in it and I had set them to the left due to them being recognizable and most eye catching. When the request came to swap Sam, I realized the baby would be most eye catching and so reversed the entire setting for effect and storytelling purposes.

Inked with a PITT soft brush.

#DailyInks #14 – More Caricatures Tonight!

by on Nov.14, 2015, under Caricatures, What's New?

Been entertaining at a private event, here, in Lakeland, Florida this evening. Now at an IHOP penciling a last minute editorial cartoon assignment for a very good cause! Part of that will likely be my Daily Inks for tomorrow.
Caricatures inked with Markettes and a Kuretake brush.

#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.

#‎DailyInks‬ #3 – My inked Got Candy & More Coloring Page! – November 3rd, 2015

by on Nov.03, 2015, under Cartooning

2015-1103-DailyInks-GotCandy

This is the inked ‪#‎cartoon‬ art for a coloring page that I still have to set up with border, logo and contact information. It’s for Got Candy & More in Lakeland, Florida. Great spot to get lots of homemade goodies, cup cakes & ice cream.

I couldn’t work at Got Candy! The very idea of being constantly surrounded with yummy cupcakes, homemade candy and ice cream is terrifying. That along with the obvious embezzlement of confectioneries that would send me up the river for a few terms at Raiford.

This was inked with Paper Mate medium Flair, PITT soft brush, and a Kuretake brush.

#INKtober – Ist Entry! & an Offer of Free Art to You! – October 1st, 2015

by on Oct.01, 2015, under Cartooning

2015-1001-INKtober-HappyOlderPeoples

er – Ist Entry!
 
Here’s my first posting for the month long #Inktober, in which artists – if you want to call me that – exercise their inking muscles everyday. I’ll post something for #INKtober everyday here.
 
That got me thinking about presenting an offer: I can ink a drawing for YOU! No charge. I love being tossed a subject or situation and drawing it off the cuff.
 
So, you can give me a subject of an animal, basic situation, location, etc, and I’ll draw it and post it here. I might just take pieces and parts of what is described. Can’t get too complicated, which is why no caricatures. This is only for the month of October. I’ll try to get the original drawing to you. If noting else, you can get a good version that can be printed.
 
Go ahead and post in the comments section or reply here as you please. I’ll draw as many as I can. But likely won’t draw them all and will be posting other artwork I’m inking, too.
 
This drawing is the inked version, before color, for my daily Swampy’s Florida Happy cartoon. These cartoons are due to “INKtober 2 years ago when I saw, cartoonist – who should be called an artist, John Sanford‘s excellent inked cartoon posts. At that point I wasn’t drawing enough, or inking enough, so I joined in. Then i stopped and knew I needed to continue. Eventually, decided last year to start the daily Swampy’s Florida cartoons, which has me ink – and coloring – daily. Anyway, big thank you to John for unintentionally getting me to ink more!
