Trying my hand at political cartooning---the Republican ticket
These were drawn in a somewhat new method for me...I did rough sketches directly from the TV screen (no photo references!) as John McCain and Sarah Palin gave their speeches at the Republican National Convention in Minnesota this week. Then I inked and colored with markers, scanned into Photoshop and added more color and the background. Thanks to cartoonist Pete Emslie for suggesting this way on the NCN forum.
