Cartoons

Sketches, old and new...

I was looking through some old sketchbooks and found stuff I wanted to pick up again. Cartoony figures, but more abstracted or stylized as you would expect from cartoony figures. I'm not quite happy with where this is at. I'm wondering how far I can take this? I want less realism, 'till the point where it snaps. But I don't want to lose the expression, it still has to communicate enough so it can be used to make actual cartoons.

Some of these sketches are two or three years old, I guess (the ones in the book). The other are from today (the ones on the separate oblong sheets of paper).

To be continued, no doubt.....
