I started doing illustrations for my school paper. it’s pretty cool. the way I see it, I get paid to experiment with different styles, as well as push myself to produce something twice a week with only an hour or two to work on each thing. the pay is expectedly low, but I’m now getting money for something I’m supposed to be doing anyway.
I’m sure there’ll be days when I have to draw something I don’t like. I’m not at all a political cartoonist, but I’m guessing I’ll have to do a lot of it. I see it all as a challenge, though.
here’s what I did for this week. a little too cute for politics, but I’m pretty happy with it. the idea’s by the editor. if I make something I’m happy with, I’ll put it up here. because of that, no one will see last week’s.
oh and I might make comics for the paper, too! I still have to contact the guy in charge, but the editor reached me about it. I hope I can do whatever I want with it.
