Marshall Ramsey ‘Live Blogs’ his process for creating a cartoon

Marshall Ramsey, editorial cartoonist for The Clarion-Ledger, “live blogged” his cartooning yesterday.

Today, I am going to show you, real time, how I draw a cartoon. It may be as exciting as watching paint dry to you, but it will give you an idea of the process I go through every day. You will see tomorrow’s as it goes from sketch to the finished piece of art.

Glad to see others do this, I did one of these back in May. It was pretty cool letting the cartoon fans interact with me during the process. I thought for sure the readers would of lost interest but they stuck around until the toon was finished.

I threw the link on my moniker MJ up there^ This wasn’t the greatest toon kind of made it simple and quick to keep the readers tooned in.

Thanks for these two looks at the cartoon process. I wish more writers would give us this kind of intimate look at their work. It demystifies the whole experience, and it’s inspiring too.
