Sneak Peek 2

Here's the pen work on the afore men- tioned retiring prin- ciple's illustra- tion. I need to do a little more work on it, but for the most part this stage of the drawing is done.

I always feel better when I get this part completed and I'm happy with it. The color makes it come to life, but if I think the caricature looks good at this point then I'm happy.

Of course the final test comes when I hear back from the client after they see the final product. I'm learning more and more that there are no guarantees in the world of cartooning.

Stay "tooned" for more.

I love the paddle on the wall. I NEVER had to go to the Principals office. So I don't know if there was one hanging there. But, the boys coach taught a class in high school. He had one hanging on the wall, he used it a few times too. That was back in the day.

Nice to see things before the finished article. Can't wait to see how this turns out.

Still haven't put up our picture - what will work and going on holiday we just haven't had time to jiggle things around.
