Clown Clutter And Some Cartoon Philosophy
I've always felt that doing these cartoons was my way of centering myself in the universe when things begin to unravel, and therefore it was easy for me to occasionally get lost in this cartoon world of my own design, like an odd therapy. So between studio jobs I would usually just automatically default to drawing them. Maybe I unconsciously thought that if the day job dried up then I was finally going to seriously pursue this cartooning thing, so I better get started. I'll be broke, but happy. But that never happened. The studios are full of stories like that, countless artists who have set their dreams aside because the business is so damn lucrative. Before long it becomes a life pattern, and you loose your way. Starting this blog has been an important step in finding my way back to my dream, and it feels pretty darn good. In fact, the main reason I have been too busy to post is I've been creating the cover for my very first cartoon book. All good.
