A bit about my writing routine

I give a few tips and tricks of how I go about writing gag comics each day.

Writing is a very important part of cartooning (obviously). It’s more essential than drawing. So, learning to write well is all part of the process.

Today I discuss just a few of my writing habits and give a few tips on how to write good, embrace blanks pages and not get discouraged. I think you’ll find that any frustrations you might have when it comes to writing are, well, normal.

I also show off my acting skills.

Enjoy and please leave some comments! The comment section LOVES to hear them!

    With my new iPad I can finally watch your videos. The previous one couldn’t. I look forward to go back to the other videos. Thanks for the course and for your talent.

      Hey, Luis — that’s great! As you’ll find out from the videos, I LOVE my iPad Pro.

      It’s on the way! I know I’ve mentioned it for awhile now. Definitely a big undertaking in progress…

      And hey — nothing wrong with the avatar 😀

    I always have that notebook handy wherever I go. I often times find that after just finishing up something like dishes or taking a shower my brain says “hey here is an idea” and then if I don’t write it down ASAP it becomes vapor 😐

      I’m the same way! I get ideas in very random places. A notebook is always handy to have around!
