Day Late but Always Remembering

For Remembrance

For Remembrance

I meant to have this ready for Remembrance Day however I discovered that this cartoon which I drew years ago was never scanned in.  Originally it was just line art in Black and White and I thought adding some colour using Corel Paintshop would be a nice touch. So that took some time with masking and painting.

The cartoon is intended to be funny yet a  respectful reminder to think of the great cost that war always brings past , present or future.

Billville was a cartoon strip I drew mostly back in the 80’s and 90’s and was based on 3 cats we had when growing up as a teen. Two are shown here. Bill and Boots.

Thanks again for  stopping by!

Cartoonists Day

Did you know that May 5th is Cartoonists Day?  Since I make claim of being some form of cartoonist then maybe a little celebration is in order with a few of my toons.  I wonder if I get a free gift? Maybe I’ll get a free pen in the mail.  Don’t forget to hug a cartoonist today.  Well maybe don’t hug them but do remember it’s the Cartoonist’s insanity that gives us a bit of sanity.  Or is that the other way around?  Anyway…Enjoy!!

And from way, waaaaay back ( 1987) a somewhat cynical view of the thankless job of the faithful school bus driver  …:^)
