All of the above were “freestyled” and they evolved from “poses” and ideas that I’ve used for quite some time.
I started experimenting with a few different concepts as well.

Neil Peart, legendary drummer from the band Rush inspired me with his attitude regarding mastering a craft:

Neil remains a student of his art, reinventing his playing virtually from scratch in the 90s with drum guru Freddie Gruber and recently undertaking another course of study with Peter Erskine. The continuing evolution of Neil’s abilities speaks to the truth of the maxim that success is not an act, but a habit. The pursuit of excellence is a journey, not a destination.

Recently I started relearning anatomy and mastering the concept of not taking my own work too seriously:

“Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.”
― Andy Warhol

 

Here’s to learning, constantly learning, improving all the time and just having fun.
My cartoons are still not where I believe they can or “should” be. But maybe that’s part of the fun— Reaching the point where the learning process becomes energizing in itself.

Keep on drawing they say! Well, why not!?

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at them doodles here!
