I mentioned on my blog that a few of us SF Cartoonists got together last Sunday for a farewell brunch to our friend Tanya who is going back to Edinburgh.
For most of you who may be familiar with this exercise, our group is doing a fun twist on it. We fold the paper in thirds, but each artist only does a pencil sketch then passes it on. After the page is finished a fourth person then inks the whole piece to give it a coherent look and working magic on the sometimes weird results of the unfolded pages. I’ll also mention that we never have any rules about the top section being a head, the middle being a torso and so on. It just happens that that is what happened with this piece, which made it such a surprise when we openened it and saw how well it all worked. Here are some photos from Sunday:
Here’s the ninth big jam… this one is from July 2006. Click the image to grab the low-res, reader’s pdf.
The theme this month is M.O.D.O.K. As in “Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing.” As in the giant head villain created by the late, great Jack Kirby. Cool… What other theme do you need? We should do M.O.D.O.K. every month.
Here’s the seventh big jam… this one is from May 4th 2006. Click the image to grab the low-res, reader’s pdf.
The themes are “Babies Can’t Do Anything,” “The Rattlesnake Twins,” “Betrayal,” “IQ Tests,” “Couch Jumpers” and “A Mother’s Love.”
Below is a small jpg of the lovely instructional sign Big Time Attic made for this particular jam.
