Comics Kingdom ran a fun blog post last week about cartoonists and their drawing tables. If you have not seen it yet, you can find it at http://comicskingdom.com/blog/2014/01/15/ask-a-cartoonist-caution-creators-at-work. Being a part of this Comics Kingdom blog post gave me the idea that, from time to time, I will show you something from my studio in this blog.
My studio is filled with lots of Barney Google and Snuffy Smith memorabilia and this planter is one of my favorites! I researched it a bit and I believe it was manufactured in the 1940’s. My wife, Karen, found it on ebay a few years ago and gave it to me for Christmas that year. I loved it! But, not being much of a gardener, I knew I needed to fill it with something other than a plant. It didn’t take me long to decide that it would be a great place to store my pens and brushes! Since, in a way, I guess I recycled that planter, I’ll show you one of my favorite Snuffy Smith strips from a few years ago which also had a recyclin’ theme…
It was a lot of fun to draw and I used pens and brushes out of my “recycled” Snuffy Smith planter to ink it!
