I’m 45 and have been drawing cartoons and newspaper style comics since I was a kid. I always wanted to be a cartoonist but chose to go down the path of web design instead. That path eventually led to digital marketing on the corporate side with a podcast side hustle that eventually ended up with me self-publishing and self-printing a book (with a text and comics mix) which I promote by... drawing and posting more comics!
So I’ve come full circle I would love to make a living out of my comics which is why I’m so grateful to have discovered the brilliant this-needs-a-Nobel-and-Caldecott-award Three Point Perspective podcast this spring and enjoyed every episode with many takeaways. I can already see an improvement in my compositions.
I’m in between jobs now and it’s hard not to want to ditch the job search for drawing all day, every day. Until that day arrives, I’d love to connect with other illustrators. Hello!
My drawing skills are rusty as I need to get back into practice so I’m hoping by being active in the SVS Forums, I can be motivated to draw, draw, draw while I tend to my side hustle and job search. Too much sitting down.
In any case, here’s a sample of my style. It’s kinda sorta the “cartoon modern” look. I tend to work in black and white since I’ve never built up the skill to work on in colour.
Pleased to meet you all!
