Three toons for today
I was busy yesterday. I had some extra time before heading out to get a pizza with my son so I drew. The first one here is for today’s edition of The Free Lance-Star.
In the rough I had the guy on the screen looking more like a punk rocker. I was talking to Ed Hall and he said I should make him look like a frat guy in a toga. I liked that idea. I should have made the tossed TP in the background burning. Ed is my go to specialist on everything involving keg stands.
In the rough for this I only had Alberto and Lindsay. Then I thought, let’s draw all three of those goobers. I wondered what would each of personal monitors need to monitor? Well, Alberto is a liar, Cheney is evil and Bush avoids reality. Wa-la! I don’t like my Cheney here. I should have worked on him longer.
Number three. I started this a few days ago when I read a story about Weekly World News dying off. That’s kinda sad. I’ve always enjoyed reading about Bat Boy, Elvis and aliens while I’m waiting in the check out line. Of course, I never bought a copy so maybe that’s why they’re closing shop.
I wasn’t sure if this cartoon actually worked because there’s so much lettering going on, which was a huge pain in the butt.
