Our Absurd Life: 03/28/21 – Alarming Discovery

Alarming Discovery

Hola Night Owls

Tonight’s Essential Cartoon is another 3-panel.  After watching some Karl Dixon cartooning videos, I’ve been feeling a little more relaxed about drawing simpler characters.  And tonight’s cartoon gave me another opportunity to draw the same 2 characters 3X each.

I also got to work on my comic book project today.  It’s only an 8-pager, but it definitely is a more time consuming process.  Lots of little decisions to make in the moment, lots of details, lots of clean-up work.  It’s easy for me to get critical, but it’s not really fair.  Comic book production is a labor intensive experience, and I’m still learning the ropes.  I think with this current project I was over ambitious, and as a result, did a lot of procrastinating in getting it completed.  My next comic book project will be simpler.

I wish everyone a restful rest of your night.

Until mañana . . .
