NEW: Digital Caricatures for Parties and Events
Captain Cartoon is developing "digital caricature" capabilities for corporate events, parties and trade shows, and now has a setup to accommodate these. Contact the Captain for more details.
Cartoons & Caricatures Drawn Digitally on Computer
An accomplished portrait artist, cartoonist, caricaturist and digital artist, there is nothing beyond the capability of Captain Cartoon, and he's recently launched digital caricatures and cartoons, featuring imagery drawn directly on-screen and posted on line.
A "purist," the Captain uses no "helper apps", preferring to draw on a Wacom tablet much the same way he uses paper and marker.
Remember the blustery "Baghdad Bob" from Desert Storm? The cartoon at right features Saddam Hussein's ultimate spinmaster, and appeared on Dick Kulpa's IUDEXonline news satire website.
BEFORE the digital era, there was that marvelous invention called a "pencil," and Captain Cartoon laid the groundwork for his digital caricatures through pencil portraits.
One such portrait drawn by the Captain (back in 1982) recently surfaced, featuring Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock of the original Star Trek TV show. This image was produced as a study for his future assignment, the nationally syndicated Star Trek newspaper comic strip. The detailed portrait was drawn in pencil, long before computer graphic programs appeared.
As the Florida cartoonist once remarked, "I never had to worry about any computer crash or power outage back then — but I occasionally ran into trouble when my electric pencil sharpener quit."
Captain Cartoon created this "Starlette Universe Interviews Elvis" satire bloc last year (shown left) in commemoration of the anniversary of Presley's death.
A number of the Captain's digitally-drawn cartoons have recently been produced for the Starlettes, including this full page feature (right).
Captain Cartoon recently produced several digitally-drawn caricature billboards, one running as large as 37 feet by 10 feet high.
Digital repair and improvement of figures is shown below on panels from Captain Cartoon's Gangbuster Comics. The first half is from 1986, and the second half features 2010 digital rework. The Captain has certainly learned a few things since the 80s ;-)
