Today, I include for you, drawings from the Warner Southern College days. These were simple cartoons which I drew for the Royal Courier (I think that was the name). It was a part of my journalism class. I wanted to learn how to write. My assignments were ALL cartoons. Hmm.
So, I figured that I should post cartoons on my blog so that I can have the best of both worlds. I do appreciate the deadlines though. These toons made me sit and “Do” things with the threat of a bad grade… or, possibly, public shaming in front of my classmates. Like Tim, Susan, Michelle, and the gang.
This was also my first time that I forced myself to draw the product from start to finish with ink. I normally pencil something to completion, then trace with pen. I had no idea how useful that skill would have been. As a matter of fact, I am committed to three ink drawings tonight for a beautiful 7-year-old princess. More koalas, I’m sure.
That’s how it started, you know. In junior high, my friend Alice loved cats. I challenged myself to draw a cat. I never had a successful one until years later, but I did a fairly awesome gum sculpture of one.
Yes, I have been known to sculpt a thing or two from gum. I do not think you care to see pictures of them, do you? Well, if my arm is twisted enough, I may twist and pinch some Bazooka into a cat for the camera.
This one was co-designed by my 9 year old. This is a limited time posting. I will post a general Koala (using this art) in a subsequent posting. If you have a pet that you would like to see cartoonized, let me know. You could have a one-of-a-kind Paul Bass-ish rendering of your pet on a shirt, mug, or pillow (think about all the drooling you could do on that).
Just grab this cute koala and have people randomly speaking with fake Aussie accents all around you. Hand drawn by Paul Bass. Design assistant – Mollie. We have a huge koala fan in our house.
Honestly, how can you not be one?
We decided to share this with the world. By world, I mean, you and everyone who sees you.
