Journal History


So yeah, I'm really excited about the upcoming Anthology book that I've been hard at work putting together.

It's currently set to feature some very talented cartoonists.

Milton Knight will be submitting, as will Robert Wertz (, Jared Axelrod (writer and rising artist), and Elana Pritchard (who studied under Jim smith and is currently working for Bakshi) - so there's a lot of serious talent going in to this book, which I'm very proud to be presenting.

I still have a few invitations pending, so I'm hoping to be able to say that there's even more great talent joining us.

It'll be a 500 copy run book, and will go on sale this September, first at SPXPO in Bethesday then on the < a href="">Syrup Pirates store. soooooo, get ready for it.

Portrait of Mort Drucker by syrupneko
For 250 points I will draw a digital caricature of you, a friend, your pet, or one of your heroes (like Abe Lincoln or Teddy Roosevelt.) And I will do so either in b/w or full color - it's your choice!

You will be responsible for providing source material for the caricature, and let me know if there's anything in particular I should add to the drawing such as a pizza, a watermelon, baseball bat, or an OC.

Caricatures will be posted to my account for your convenience. Images will be posted in a full resolution, and you will be free to do whatever you want with them (including reposting it on your own account.)

You know you wanna get all tooned up, so throw down those points now!

draw draw draw. Buy the Preston Blair Book, and listen to everything <a wytiwyg="1" href="…" john="" k<="" a=""> says to do on his blogs. I especially recommend his advice about buying a stack of 30s and 40s toons, and just freeze framing them and draw what you see. Of course, judging by your gallery, I believe you're already on your way there.

Otherwise, only more personal anecdote I have, is make sure to network and follow plenty of other artists. Study many styles, even if they're ones you don't particularly care for. It'll help you out in big ways.
