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

by on Nov.17, 2015, under Cartooning


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 #15 – Inking an Octopus!

by on Nov.15, 2015, under Cartooning


This project dropped in as I drove to Lakeland Saturday afternoon and needed by Sunday night. Penciling and inking is easy. Coloring is the time eater.

This was inked with a Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen – Hard and a PITT medium pen.

#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.

#DailyInks #12 – Inking a College Professor – November 12th, 2015

by on Nov.12, 2015, under Cartooning, Editorials


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.

#DailyInks #9 – Now a Week Ahead!

by on Nov.10, 2015, under Cartooning


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


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.

#INKober #30 – Batman vs the Dragon!!! – October 30th, 2015

by on Oct.30, 2015, under Caricatures


My neighbor has been a HUGE help this past year doing many things including helping to remove a fallen tree in my front yard – a HUGE tree. During his Fall Festival (AKA Halloween) Party I participated by drawing some of his guests.

Jonathan (Above and below) told me much about himself. I decided to make this more a novelty item and have his love of Batman and dragons coalesce.




Anthony (Above) enjoys researching Christian biblical ideas.


Jennie is involved with arts and crafts from painting to making beaded jewelry.
