Welcome to a brand new feature here at the ol’ Andertoons Blog entitled “Whatcha Think?!”
Every so often odd little questions about cartoons/cartooning pop into my head and I thought my blog would be the perfect way to exorcise some cartoon query demons and create a little discussion.
So, here we go!
OK, on Monday I blogged about a Get Fuzzy strip (click here to see it) in which Darby Conley makes a joke about the medium itself. Conley has continued the trend this week and I’ve really enjoyed them.
Here’s the thing though. I’ve found when I’m faced with a really bad cartoon idea dry spell I’m often drawn to writing about myself or cartooning in general.
Which got me thinking…
Are cartoons about cartooning/cartoonists fiendishly clever? Or, as I’ve experienced/heard offered up, simply a way to get past a particularly nasty case of writer’s block? Maybe a little from column A and a little from column B?
