Fun with acrylics!
This cartoon was inspired by my time in Tahoe with new friends. The Australian cattle dog where I was staying, Austin is his name, thought it was his job to herd all cars coming up and down the street and would go crazy when he saw one in the window.
I finished this cartoon right before I left and realized that it was not so much a cartoon about Austin’s hurding propensity, but a reflection of what I expected to happen as I drove away in my little green car. Austin would notice me leaving and be very concerned.
I was already going to miss my new friends Lauren & Austin!
Last weekend I spent the afternoon creating a bunch of birdhouses with my mom, adding more inventory to Lil’ Girl’s garden. As you can see it was a bit of a Santa’s workshop.
The resin coating is always a bit of a mess, as I’m always trying to find a good way to hang the birdhouses while they dry and drip. It’s always an interesting challenge. We went with bungee cords and hung them in the garage. It worked out perfectly.
After a week at the Center for Cartoon Studies, I created my first mini-comic– Lil’ Girl Explores the Pacific Northwest.
