Tease for Wednesday
When I draw something sometimes I’m not sure if it looks good. Then I hold the paper up toward the light and sometimes still can’t tell if it looks good. Then I turn it around and hold it up to the light and it seems very different, more like it’ll appear in the newspaper. I used to put my freshly made toon on a shelf and walk ten feet away to see how it’d look from a distance. Now I just reduce them and then it can start to look cool. But I’m not really going to know how well it looks until I see it online and in the newspaper. Tomorrow’s toons is one of those. I’m not sure if the art works. I’ll find out tomorrow.
