    I’ve just started a poetry blog that I do not take seriously at all, hence the “silly poetry” title. Anyway, your blog is the first I’ve found so far with poetry that is silly in nature, and does not take itself so seriously as other poetry blogs I’ve found.

    Anyway, I’ve enjoyed perusing your blog, and I hope you will take a peek at mine, on occasion. Please don’t cringe too much though, my poetry style is in its infancy!

    Thanks for putting your talent where it can be seen.

    I love your work. Do you color by hand or software?
    If so,which software do you use.

    • Thanks so much, Keith!

      Most of the time I draw directly into Photoshop using a Wacom digital drawing tablet. I used to scan my linework into Photoshop, but once I mastered the Wacom, I went paperless! Well, not quite. I still work out sketches on paper for most of my cartoons, so I have a good idea of what I want to do once I plug in the digital tablet.
