Day 10: Today a cartoon – That’s all folks!

I’ve drawn a cartoon to illustrate the story of today’s blogging journey.

The clock times are exaggerated for dramatic effect but the depicted emotions are almost accurate.

There are nine frames in all.

I sketched out the idea for the storyboard.  Then I tried to draw a neater, more anatomically correct version.

But the neater cartoon pictures felt flat and had less energy.  So I stuck with the original scribbles, inking over the pencil.

I had been trying to decide, for most of the day, what to blog about.

At 3pm and no further forward, I started to see the funny side.

“This would make a great cartoon.”

I’m not a cartoonist but I thought it would be fun to have a go.

After all, the intention was to blog about anything in any way – and that includes cartoons!

So, whilst my cartoon certainly isn’t Looney Tunes quality, here it is anyway.

And for today . . . as Porky Pig  would say –

That’s All Folks!
