Finally managed to get the ‘Mose Goes Walkies’ website up and running. I’m not sure where this new venture is going, but I felt it was different enough from my usual work that it needed its own web presence. For those that are just joining us, I’ve been drawing a daily comic strip since May 31st of this year, with the goal of perhaps someday publishing these cartoons in some form in the future. At this point (I’m nearing 100 strips very soon) I consider it ‘on the job training’, learning to be a better cartoonist, expressing myself, fulfilling a lifelong ambition, call it what you will. There are links on the website to our Instagram account, our Patreon page, and several sample strips to peruse. The link in the menubar above will take you to the official website.
Been a long dry summer at the illustration mines. Not much to post in quite a while. Been working on a few book projects (and have a few new ones in the coming months), and this past week I had a few spot illustration assignments from Delaware Today (several ‘exercise gear’ spots pictured above, and a few houses below).
Yes, I’m still doing illustration work. Here’s a few recent projects I’ve been working on. These black and white illustrations are chapter openers for an upcoming book on “Evolutionary Intelligence”.
Below is an illustration I did last week for Delaware Today, about a Lacrosse team who got caught in a racial profiling traffic stop.
The strip above is one I’ve done early for next Sunday, as I’ll be away at a music festival this weekend.
I’ve created a Patreon Page for “Mose Goes Walkies” as a way of supporting my cartooning habit. Ever since I was 10 years old, I’ve wanted to be a cartoonist. I’ve compromised over the years, working as a graphic artist, then as an illustrator for more than 3 decades, but as I’ve only got five more working years (give or take) left in me, I’ve decided to pour a lot more energy into achieving this goal. I am still very new to this, and hope to improve with repetition.
I’d like to reassure my illustration clients, that I am still accepting commissions and will be giving 100% of my energy and creativity to whatever future projects come my way, however you will be seeing a lot more of Mose around here.
Finished up the Delaware Today portrait this weekend. Tried to keep it loose and sketchy, and add a little more dynamics than were present in the original photo they gave me as a starting point.
