Below are a few collections of my cartoon style. As a child I learned that I could draw anything I thought of as long as I had the idea of its shape and size. Every day objects were easier like a pencil and paper, but I grew to accept the challenge of drawing more complicated objects like furniture and people. I still experiment with my cartooning for enjoyment, sometimes doodling helps my brain to relax and sets my imagination free.
When you think of self-expression and attitude, surely people come to mind… (okay maybe dogs, too). People have been developed into cartoons for many years and they can encompass job attributes as well as special occasions. I’m sure the majority of you may think of the funny comics you read as a child or possibly the political comics in the day of the newspaper. Either way, people are an iconic figure in cartoon history.
Cartoonists have included animals in their portfolio for as long as I can remember. Possibly the most famous being Walt Disney and his famous mouse. Adding human expression to animals gives us joy and satisfaction and helps us to broaden our world we reach out to. Both adults and children can relate to animals and their every day life experiences and there are so many kinds of animals out there making the possibilities infinite.
Holidays / Special Occasions
The novelty of holidays gives cartoonists the chance to utilize their art skills to appeal to many different cultures. From Easter and Christmas to weddings and birthdays, cartoons help us celebrate all kinds of special occasions.
Cartoons can be found in children’s books and in classrooms because kids eagerly learn when we make it fun. It sparks their interest if it speaks to their imagination and we all tend to remember more of a subject with images that are vibrant in color and surprisingly pleasing to the eye.
