Check out A Case for Pencils – New Yorker cartoonists show what tools they use

I found the “A Case for Pencils” blog this morning via Michael Maslin’s Inkspill. It’s a blog where New Yorker cartoonists show the tools and process they use for their cartoons. Some are more in-depth than others. The latest one from Shannon Wheeler is excellent. Photo below is one from Shannon’s process.

I practice cartooning 7 days a week I haven’t sold any for a long time. I’m looking gag writers I’m not good at gag writing. I’ll pay 25% on any cartoons published. And I’ll give the gag writer credit for the idea,,,,,Contact samboggambo93@gmail.com Sam Fox

Writing the gag is the hardest bit, Sam.
