It's nice that all the shenanigans of the election are done with, but I guess there's still plenty to cartoon about. Politics aside, I think I'm starting to hit my stride with my editorial cartoon style. I find that when I draw with pen and ink, its hard for me to loosen up. Many editorial cartoons are very sloppy, but its a controlled sloppiness thats very appealing. I think if an artist tries to force a style, it will be evident in their work. MAD Magazine artist Tom Richmond once told me that your style will just develop after many hundreds of thousands of drawings. So all I can do is keep pounding out drawings, and it'll come.
