(UPDATE: Never OVER-estimate the United States postal service! I would have made this post on the correct day, three days ago, but these pieces took extra long to get delivered so I had to keep them under wraps for a little while longer. ANYway...)
Go wish the dynamic brothers Ben and Scott a most happiest of birthdays this week! Ben is one of my best friends and when I'm feeling uninspired or crummy about my own art (which is way too often), he's one of the only people that can kick my ass and force me to bounce right back to being motivated. So if you like any of my cartoons, go and thank him for being one of my biggest influences!
I really like how my Betty came out. I tried to do true justice to the character by drawing her in the original dog-girl style, complete with puppy ears, that Grim Natwick helmed. Here's my ink below. Boop-a-doop!
What's interesting about the piece above is that it's my first time coloring with actual fancy markers that are used by all those bigshot cartoonists you like. Actually, they are Kali's fancy markers that she let me borrow. What a gal!
The girl on the left is our shared obsession, 60's socialite Edie Sedgwick!
And if you don't know who the middle character is by this time, then shame on you because you shouldn't even be at this blog! Don't forget, Jo is coming soon to a webcomic near you!
She even created a comic for her beloved creator on his special day.
