new ambition


A few days ago, I decided to abandon my goal of being a writer and pursue a new career path: cartoonistry. Not sure if that's actually a word, but who cares--cartoonists don't have to use good grammar!

Here is a sampling of my work: a self portrait. I think I look like a mixture of Mr. DeMartino, the super-angry teacher in Daria, and Rogue from the X-Men, which is pretty accurate to my personality. I wish I hadn't drawn myself smiling.

cartoon self-portaits are hard; paradoxically, i find that it's almost impossible for me to draw a cartoon figure who doesn't accidentally resemble me -- they all have big noses and heroin eyes.

More comics forthcoming. I just don't have it in me to write about anything substantial these days.

Reminds me of the cartoon version of Winona Ryder's character in the Beetlejuice animated series that was on, I think, Nickelodeon oh so many years ago.

I won't link to it just in case my memory is not that accurate and they totally don't look anything alike.

I totally agree with the article.
