Our Absurd Life: 03/27/21 – The Naked Truth

The Naked Truth

Hola Night Owls

Tonight’s Essential Cartoon brings back “Beware of Beartrap” starring Blair and his best friend, Ron.  

This is a 3-panel cartoon, where there is less build-up, and goes straight to the punch line.  It would be good practice to do more 3-panel cartoons, since it requires such streamlined dialog.  I use 9X12 Bristol boards, so I am compromised on room for the layouts and lettering when the panels line up one after another, as opposed to 2 on top and 2 on bottom as I usually do.

It’s all experimental.  One day I’d like to graduate to larger size boards, but now the 9X12 is an easy size for me to erase and photograph.

Until mañana . . .
