In my continuing quest to convince Google that I am not scraping the content of other sites, I present to you (and their spiders) Blue, which I painted in 2017. You can even see my signature on it.
It was a fun painting to do (I paint digitally on table monitors) because the transparency allowed me to seamlessly approximate the color of a collie with the background.
I work in the same way that most cartoonists do, I think. I do a rough sketch, then ink it, add local color, and then (sometimes) shading. The shading makes it look realistic...but that isn't always what I am looking for. There are plenty of artists that do realism far better than I have ever cared to. No, I am primarily a cartoonist.
I am currently working on developing a fifty-two strip weekly series of cartoons that will explain more deeply who I am and what I think...without being the least bit political. I think laughing at ourselves is wonderful, creative medicine in a world that desperately needs more joy.
Until tomorrow... ...cb
