To Err, With Love; Cartoons









These are all old drawings I did when I was in college. I doodled some from comic books, and at the time I was listening to a lot of Iron Maiden and it influenced my art. I promised my buddy, Err, that I would post some cartoons just for him and here they are. Feel free to swipe one for your avatar if you feel so inclined Err. I think my self portrait looks kind of like you without the goatee. If these won't do, say so. I'll draw something else for you.

  4. err- I'm glad you like them. I was hoping that you might find a favorite among them, and low and behold, you picked the one I would have. Of all of them, this is my favorite. I took me three days to draw it.

    #1- It would be my honor to oblige. I just need to figure out how to include the two of you with your vintage thingies, and of course drinking will be involved.

    GkL- I'm sorry dear, I can't draw perfection. My humble talent only allows so much, and if I tried to commit her image to paper, it would be a sin to deface her in such a way. That, and I don't draw girls well.

    Dale- I promised you a cartoon and yours is at the head of the list. The pen is poised, I assure you. The composition was suggested by a friend of mine and I have it mentally laid out, but it needs to be drawn right to left because I'm left handed and I can't drag my hand through it. I want to present you with a pristine copy that you can send to the high school reunion folks to show them you're doing fine and to make them wish they were you. In short, I want to create for you a piece of art that you might be tempted to display in the guest bathroom. I can't create for you the smile of the Mona Lisa, but with any luck, I can conjure a smile.

    So the list stands:
    1.Dale
    2.Cap'n Ergo
    3.Sistas #1 & #2

    Should you like a cartoon, say so.

    Cheers,
    Doc

  6. Wow, those look great Doc! I'm not sure why the gunslinger is wearing one mitten but it's cool!

  7. Dale- The reason the gunfighter is wearing one mitton is the the fact that I don't draw hands and feet well and it seemed like an easy shortcut, as it was out of the light. With careful attention to what I draw, you will notice an inordinant amount of shortcuts. It truly is what defines the hacks from the artist.

    I've been lucky. No one has noticed but you. Keep it quiet okay?
