In Print

…on paper…Scan 855

…oops.

Close Encounter

…most definitely of the first kind…Scan 828

…because this is the first time I used my little green men characters.

 

…(apologies for all the references to politicians long since retired or dead or incarcerated or all of the above…as we would prefer)….

OOO Colour

Scan 782

…this is the first cartoon I completed in full colour (ed pencil)…a reprise of a ‘toon published the year before…at the request of an AIDs awareness group whose name escapes me….

…damn, I’m old enough to remember sex before condoms!

…(I only worked in colour when someone else requested it in days of yore…too expensive for me to reproduce…

…damn, I’m old enough to remember print costs before colour copiers and ink jet printers!)

21 Years Behind The Brush

…ooo…this is the first page I did with a brush…Scan 781

…actually it’s got some pen work in it as well, but my confidence that the brush was a good idea took a couple of years to “take”…

…can’t remember the context for the idea…

…or which publication it appeared in…

….(possibly a capping mag’)….

…(in 1994 I organised myself and 3 others to contribute weekly strip cartoons to Critic, the Otago University Student Association’s newspaper. My contribution was an attempt to be topical on a weekly basis…)….(this bit is true).
