February 18, 2018 –
I draw cartoons at night and on the weekend producing one, fun drawing each Sunday. It’s called Sunday Gravy, and like a good marinara, it takes that time to develop and blend all the ideas. Lately, each new cartoon’s theme is based on past posts, creating a rolling story line that flirts with our future in robots and artificial intelligence. Celebrities and politicians appear in fun-jabbing cameo appearances, so look out for them.
Cartoons are drawn on an iPad Pro using an Apple Pencil and Procreate, a wonderful ap that performs perfectly for cartooning, except for typed text. I use Manga Studio for typed text, and then MicroSoft Office Picture Manager to edit file size.
Goal for 2018 is to keep improving, so spending a little more time on inking and color techniques along with detailing a fun background will be the focus. Writing is “Yuge!” in cartoons, so I’ll continue working on that too.
Hope you enjoy the cartoons!
