I've been accused of having a very short attention sp....that cloud looks like Sponge Bob drinking beer....so anyway, I thought I'd change it up for just a day with a pre-"Spectickles" cartoon. This one has taken on a life of it's own - it's appeared in places like Reader's Digest magazine and a bunch of other places. Probably my favorite from my earlier work. This was drawn with a dip pen, I believe it was a Speedball #2 nib on Bristol Board and if I remember correctly, it was Higgins Black India ink. Color was done much later when I started to get a basic handle on Photoshop. Hope you enjoy!
Well, it's the wee hours of the morning and the Abbott family is up and getting ready for a week in the Adirondacks. Since there is no internet and little cell phone coverage, this'll be the last "Cartoon A Day" for a week. Hope everyone is having a great summer and I'll be posting again as soon as I get back. Cheers!
