Warning: I have started another one of my ridiculous cartoons. It is another example of taking an old cliche and turning it backwards. I seem to have a sense of obligation of doing that and bringing it to the attention of the cyber public. This is more of a mixed media effort. It involves a common tool, a napkin, and my $100 printer/copier/scanner. Drawing and painting will be done with jpeg. I know my mixed media projects are pretty chintzy. My art supplies are pretty much the same as those found in kindergarten classrooms, and it is a similar experience, except these days I no longer eat the paste. These same art supplies are usually stored in two plastic cups. What can I say? I try to do the best with what I know and what I have. I do have kind of a goal to be a mixed media type cartoonist. It seems to be a fit for me, since I am a goofball by nature anyway. I haven't seen much of that from anyone else out there. That could be good or bad I guess. I do enjoy my dumb cartoons though. I honestly believe that humor fuels my creativity. I also like to work on multiple projects simultaneously. It seems to keep me from getting too bored or frustrated. If one project is making me tear my hair out, I can switch to the other one to divert my attention.
