See Ya in the Funny Papers
It occurs to me that I probably wanted to be a cartoonist. "See ya in the funny papers!" was a favourite parting comment in my family. Seemed like a grand objective to a child. I also "interviewed" a famous cartoonist as a kid (I was the kid). I also have loved all things automotive since childhood, especially the designs of American cars. And of course watercolour. So I guess painting dopey car pics is natural. I am after the entertainment factor. No mask, little reference material just draw and paint. I am avoiding the inevitable, which is plein air landscraping.
