I’ve been working through Ivan Brunetti’s great new book, Cartooning, the past few weeks. I like it because he approaches cartooning as it being a visual mode of storytelling, placing as much emphasis on writing as illustrating. It’s fun and giving me some more structured things to try to loosen up and expand my drawing. The assignments and exercises for the past week dealt with doodling as a foundation for later work. I worked a lot in my small sketchbook, but found when I grabbed a large sheet of paper and a Sharpie marker, I felt a lot more free. Here are a couple of samples, my reluctant models:

Tater (I need to color her in.)

Zebediah (He's always good. The "good" here means my drawing.)
