Got some new pen nibs…decided to check ’em out…looks like I’m liking the Speedball 108 (the dude on the far right with the bandaid on his face). Too bad I wound up with only one of it, and 3 of 12 other kinds I don’t really care for. This is me just messing around with my new nibs and me trying to get used to using inks, inkwells, droppers, cleaners, blah blah blah. It’s a pain in the ass, but I can’t get the line weights out of a rollerball or prismacolor pen, and when it comes to inking, line-weight is everything.

Political Cartoon Attempt #06

FDA Plus GMO political caroon

what:nib pen & brush when:Apr 10, 2012

Yet another crack at my idea of a political cartoon. I’m not sure if I should give up entirely or keep on cranking these out. It just feels like…my drawing cannot get any better…I don’t know. It’s weird. Maybe I’ll think about my epiphany about attitude some more. Half of me wants to give up, but the other half is fighting for continuing on. I know that really good cartoonists should inspire me, but I can’t help but feel discouraged when I see the works of the masters.
