Meanwhile, back on the campaign trail…
About these strips….
Jim Steinmeyer and I worked in an unusual fashion. I drew the strips first with a particular theme in mind but leaving the word balloons blank, Then Jim wrote the dialogue. He didn’t know what I was going to draw; I didn’t know what he was going to write.
One of my goals in this creative project was to shed my art of any slickness. After a couple of penciled circles (for size and placement) but no penciling, I went straight to inking, keeping the art fresh and spontaneous. I was inspired by Robert Crumb in this regard.
I love the end result. I’m surprised at the complex range of expression I was able to capture with this character. And Jim’s writing is so damn funny!
