Many of the initial assignments at The Center for Cartoon Studies are all about reducing cartooning to its bare essentials so that students can focus on the important inner workings and guts of comics. We all come here with our own styles and approaches to comics making, but I really like being forced outside my comfort zone. I mean, if I wanted to draw the way I always draw, I could have stayed at home, right?
The Ed Emberley assignment, removes the problem of drawing from the cartooning process by simplifying how students draw.
A couple of months ago, my wife and I visited Canmore with a friend.
I sketched the mountains during this time, but worked on the comics during coffee breaks the week after we returned to Regina. The dog poop story is true, and the bunny love comic is probably true, knowing bunnies and their penchant for intercourse.
