Hola Family & Friends

Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Day!

Tonight’s Essential Cartoon was created specifically for my friend Art over in yonder East Coast regions.  He writes articles for the Medium website and this will be the 3rd cartoon he’s used for one of his pieces.  It’s fun collaborating with him.  And he does an awesome job on his articles.  I will attach a link in a couple days so people can check it out.  His work is inspirational, and oftentimes very humorous.  Thanks again, Art!

Speaking of art, I included a 2nd attachment on tonight’s email.  This is the cartoon still in its penciled form.  I had emailed it to Art earlier today to show him what the final was going to look like.  I think it’s cool to see the bare bones of a cartoon before it gets inked, shaded, and then colored.  

I heard rumor that we were going be slammed by some extreme high winds.  All seems calm and peaceful right now.  Let’s hope it lasts.

I wish everyone a restful rest of your evening.  There’s still some time to be creative.  Go for it!

Until mañana . . .
