Assignment #3.2

Second strip in a series of 6.

Assignment #3.1

They say that coffee is a psychotropic… Here is the first 4-panel comic in a series of 6 that I will be working on for this section. 

Haven’t had a chance to work on the next assignments in “Cartooning” since I was working on this comic all weekend. “Skuffer” is the name of a song on the album Bubble Gum by Color Animal, which this comic will be printed as part of the liner notes.

Drew this last week before I started the “Cartooning” book by Ivan Brunetti. A bit derivative of Quimby, but a good exercise nonetheless.

Assignment #2
For this assignment, I created 3 single panel cartoons. These are based on everyday interactions, and the goal was to introduce dialogue or other visual cues to achieve an unexpected result. 
Conceptually, I think these are all fairly succinct. Stylistically, they vary quite a bit. By the time I got to the third, I noticed that my brush work had improved considerably (to the point where it didn’t feel necessary to use the pen to pull straight lines). The crosshatching in the tiles was an attempt to challenge myself in pulling consistent strokes. 
All of the characters in these cartoons are very simple; I’m hoping to push the complexity of their expressions and design in the next assignments. Assignment #2

Assignment #1

In the following weeks, I’ll be documenting my process for the assignments given in Ivan Brunetti’s “Cartooning”.

For Assigment #1, a dense variety of doodles is organized on a grid. My favorite characters are the Axe Axe Murderer, the spiral guy below him, the cat on the bottom, and whatever the hell that thing is on the bottom right with the unsettling smile.
