James Point Du Jour – Inside the Cartoonist’s Studio

Inside the Cartoonist's Studio

Well, it’s the end of 2004, and to wrap up this year’s Inside the Cartoonist’s Studio fun we have Ellington Way‘s James Point Du Jour!

Here goes…

1) If you were to cast a movie entirely with cartoon characters, what movie would it be and who would star in it?

I’d remake “The Princess Bride” with Cyclops and Jean Grey from X-Men. Oscar gold.

2) You’re a syndicate editor launching a new comic strip. What’s the worst possible title you can think of?

“Roquefort the Puppy Stabber.” Reuben gold.

3) A light bulb over a cartoon’s head signifies an idea, while a string of random characters denotes swearing. Invent a new cartooning icon and what it means.

An empty coffee mug floats over the character’s head signifying imminent meltdown. This would commonly occur while watching “The Age of Innocence.”

Dang! Now I’m going to have to retool my latest strip, “Rupert the Puppy Stabber!”

Thanks a bunch, James! Be sure to check out Ellington Way, his CoffeeRoll site, and Artists Helping Children (a great organization James hipped me to!).
