Inspired by the Nerd Nite “Health Comics and Healthcare” and with most of the week just too F#&!@%# hot to work at a computer, I thought now would be a good time to sit down, in the shade, with a pencil and a piece of paper to see for myself exactly how hard it is to create a cartoon and answer that question.
Not trying to get off easy, I went with a stick figure representation of myself. Aside for not having glasses and being a smidge thinner than I really am, it is a fairly accurate representation of my appearance. It didn’t take too long, required minimal swearing and was fun to do.
Although this won’t win any prizes nor will I be making a graphic novel of my stick figure misadventures any time soon, I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. So, I’m going to call this a win and who knows… if people really like this, maybe my stick figure doppelganger will start making regular cameos.
