How to Draw Cartoons...and Break Through the Creative Block!

By golly, I've been so busy sorting through my backlog of projects, that I've not managed to really complete anything.  Why is that?

 

It appears that I have the opposite of Creative Block; instead of being dry on ideas, I'm bursting at the seams.  There are so many things that I want to do, that I can't manage to accomplish anything at all!  I suppose it's called Creative Logjam.

 

Here's how I broke free (this time)…I followed one beautifully creative YouTube…

 

…and then to another…

 

 

As I looked at the comments, I felt very sad about a one that said "she draws like a two-year old."  For the entire 4 minutes, 39 seconds, I'd been wishing that I had the unabashed creative expression to paint like a 2-yr old!  (Well, 8-yr old, because that's when children really know who they are, and they haven't yet been stuffed into the world's expectations.)  Admitting that I'm so frustrated by my codgerly dullness, and that I've not drawn anything at all lately…I drew…

 

and I drew…
and I drew…
But I was getting rather bored…
But I was getting rather bored…
…until we came around the corner…
…until we came around the corner…
I admit, I enjoyed that.
I admit, I enjoyed that.

Now it's your turn!  Be sure to include a link to your cartoons in the comments…
