Outrage and anger comes first. Funny, maybe, comes later.

I have set free 100 cats worldwide. Not on sale, but free!
My ebook 100 cats on iTunes Bookstore is free worldwide. Except in America, Land of the Free™ where the .99 tariff continues, because the country is insane.

A fairly restrained, maybe tentative use of a custom brush in Procreate. If you use the app, you can find that drip shape. Watercolour splotches are fun

Google AI seems to have done a pretty fair job on curating and editing these photos. I think I may have had a hand in some filters on iPad, but there is a consistent bright and saturated feel I think I didn’t have much to do with. Nice set of pics though.
I felt like it was more a bit of incoherent rambling. :-) But I would like to emphasize that LondOntLife is intended as an outlet for local editorial cartoons, by anybody, because Merle Tingley’s presence and inspiration can’t be thrown away.
I’ve set up a Square store for online book sales. All books are a limited edition run of 20. $25.00 covers all shipping, handling and other annoying stuff.

Mix, when it was run by Paper by 53 was a great little creative social site. Art was offered as jumping points for improvisations. The monstrous creatures in this cartoon were not drawn by me, but the first creature was offered by another contributor. The modifications are my riffs on the original artwork.

Monthly, I participate in a comic jam at a community gallery. So inclined artists gather and run a kind of storytelling Exquisite Corpse comic page jam. In the sense I miss Mix, not having it does free time I indulged. It wasn’t a waste of time, I guess I’m trying to say, but not having it any longer to draw, does make time for other things, like drawing.
Hmmm… I think the colouring worked out well.
