I'm wondering how long it takes to actually draw a strip once you get the idea and just need to put it down on paper. I read a lot of comics and they look so simple to draw, but my drawings don't look anywhere near as lifelike and full of personality as yours (and other cartoon artists) do. How hard is it to draw all the different characters from different angles and have them still look like themselves?
Maria A.Hi Maria! Thanks for asking. It's like anything else, the more you practice, the better (and quicker) you get! You can find out more about The Making of a Comic Strip here! Thank you, Lynn, for the beautiful tribute to Phyllis Diller. The lady was a legend, I can say nothing you have not about her. The angels in heaven are laughing with Phyllis Diller now.
Geri CGee, and I thougt it was bad to wake up with a hairy, restless Himalayan cat in the bed at 4:30 A.M. I often wake up with a hairy tail in my mouth, though.....
Becky Kemp, Birdsboro, P"Let me sleep," brings to mind: My brother was 6 years younger than I. That means, when I was a young teen, he was a little kid. My favorite indulgence was to sleep in on Saturday a.m. It went something like this... Betty, what time is it? I told you not to wake me up! You don't have to wake up; just tell me what time it is. ...!
