Cartoons

Post by olds442jetaway »

Hi gang. I have been doodling on leftover containers at restaurants and my favorite diners for many years. Just to lighten things up a bit, here is today’s cartoon. I always have rhe same two characters. The boy and Spider. They are lifelong friends and sometimes play pranks on each other too.

Thank you for sharing. This is something you obviously enjoy, although you are not particularly very good at drawing. That's not an insult, by any means. I admire that you continue doing something you enjoy. Far too many people are afraid to draw, or sing , or do much of anything because they are afraid it won't be great.

Harry Chapin wrote-
" But music was his life, it was not his livelihood.
It made him feel so happy, it made him feel so good.
And he sang from his heart, and he sang from his soul.
He did not know how well he sang, it just made him whole."

Critics don't bother me because if I do badly, I know I'm bad before they even write it. And if I'm good, I know I'm good. I know best about myself, so a critic doesn't anger me. - Frank Sinatra

Olds, if it makes you happy: then it's museum quality.

It's tons better than I could do. It was all I could do in grade school to draw letters!! Good job, olds. Do you still have your introductory drawing. Based on the inter-toon banter, maybe we are listening in on Chapter 7 without knowing what went on in the previous couple sessions.

That doesn't look like a Saturn but if the car can still get one to the casino ...

I appreciate all of the replies. The point of the cartoons is to barely get by with the drawing, but to add a bit of wit, humor, and emphasize events in life that really happen though in a different way with the characters. I, m usually drawing on styrofoam so the pen skips, runs ragged etc. also most are done in less than 5 minutes as the wife patiently sips the last few sips of her tea. Anyway, i will post them fromtine to time. If the gang gets tired of them or finds no wit, humor, or fun in them, just let me know. Im taking a bit of a break from vp. The clone i was working on on job and joker kings ultimately failed, but the deuces wild one still seens to work pretty well. The saturn just turned 384,000 miles. Looks like wa 2019 elantra is going to be the replacement pretty soon. And in the spring pick up a couple of well cared for little benz sports coupes with the retractable hardtops One for me and one for the mrs. The repair bills i know already will be high

Too many people think happiness is a destination, when it's really the journey.

Here is another recent one. I know some of us can identify with this one.

It looks like "The boy" is into a couple different hairstyles.

A few weeks ago i did one where Spider running the Snip and go Salon gave boy a haircut but turned him into a girl by mistake earing and all Boy actually liked it and the look. In this crazy world and politically correct climate, i decided not to post that one. It was cute though and innocent.
