"Prescott's Own Cartoon Laureate & One-Man Comi-Con"


webx

Am I a movie cliche' or what?

HIGH NOON w/ Gary Cooper comes to mind.

The local paper just ran a small display ad for

a new Editorial Cartoonist.

I took the bait - hook, line and sinker.

Coming out of retirement these past 10 days while I pondered the loose parameters of the trial assignment - & learned a few things about myself. No longer interested in doing the same old things. Those can be had from any syndicate. Also no longer interested in a daily deadline. I have been drawn more and more into exactingly detailed scenes (as featured @ MAIN-STREETS-USA.com)

But I picked up my shooting irons again nonetheless.

This time to reset the high bar of my goals and to create something of value and concern to the community. Borrowing elements from my greatest teachers; the high drama of Milt Caniff's "STEVE CANYON" and the way-ahead-of-his-time wide screen Western panoramas of Stan Lynde's "RICK O'SHAY". Like Will Eisner's "SPIRIT", I found the conscience of the city embodied in the larger- than-life bronze castings of Arizona pioneers throughout Prescott. I have breathed life into them. These strips occupy the same square inch space as traditional editorials but in an exciting new 2-panel format! Don't know yet if these will make the cut and see print but I hope you enjoy them...

CONTEST UPDATE! Having dropped anchor in the lee of another sizeable rock (Thumb Butte) above

Prescott, AZ - I succumbed once again to an ad soliciting my opinionated ruminations. In a boomarang of a compliment - they rejected my first proposal AND MADE ME A FINALIST in their cartoon competition...

Ironically I quoted Mark Twain at the top of  this section  - who late in life attempted more serious writing than his early career - only to be typecast into cranking out  more "funny books".
I appear to be a similar victim of my own sarcasm.

Above is the thumbnail link to the follow-up submission, wherein I assault everyone at City Hall with a good-intentioned mustachio! For the clean-shaven version of these political portraits clik HERE.


THE PRESCOTTOONIAN IS PART OF A LARGER ONGOING BODY OF WORK...
