Introducing Some New Creative Quickies Internet Stores

Mother Goose - Hey Diddle Diddle
I found out recently the number of  items in my internet store were nearing the hosts' limit, so I reworked a few of the larger store departments into their own storefront. Here's a new list of my humor stores, current as of Christmas 2012.

Find Native American art in Kokopelli Korner, hard-to-find trophies & merit badges in Brocades And Accolades, twisted nursery rhymes in Goosing Mother Goose, and a wide variety of topical humor sorted by departments in my original Creative Quickies store.

Contact me at my Website, my Facebook Page, or call me at (517) 975-5549.

Putting Yourself And Your Family In Your Christmas Cards

Christmas Card Caricatures
From now through November 15 all holiday caricatures of two or more people are 25% off. These are great for custom Christmas cards or for framing. Message me on the contact page of my website, call (517) 975-5549 or check out my Facebook page.

Mock-Up Merit Badges - Simulating 3D

I have added a new line of work to my cartooning. On a whim, I drew some simple shapes and pushed them through the software I use to create 3D text. They came out so nicely I have begun doing designs specifically for 3D. Pictured here is an adult merit badge for drinking, which is available with others in the Awards Department of my Cafepress Store. Custom artwork is also available at my Creative Quickies Website. Check out 300+ drawings on my Facebook page.

MY Newest Best Friend

Angry Bird - Red Bird
It's been nearly three years since the Angry Birds were introduced, but red bird has become the obvious favorite and red bird products are flying off the shelf in my store. People still can't get enough. I have my own depiction of all the angry birds, along with many dozens of other images, for sale in my store. Stop in and take a look around. I have something for everyone. To visit the birds, follow my store link or go directly to the 'Birds Department'.

Taking The Next Step.

I've been using two-layer color with reflection overlays in my cartoons, cartoon logos, and cartoon advertisements for quite a while, as in the image at left. Two layers makes the shading and shadows very smooth without raggedy separation lines between the various shades. But now I want to try three-layer color. It might turn out to be an overkill, but I'm anxious to see what it looks like. Good or bad, I'll post it here after I try it. :D I'm always striving to make my cartoons, cartoon logos and cartoon advertisements better.

Creating Anything From Anything - The World Is Our Playground

There are as many ways to put new twists on old ideas as there are new ideas. Cartoons, cartoon logos, and cartoon advertisements really pop with humor. Make it simple or make it complex, but make it your own.
