COMMUNICATION

COMMUNICATION is difficult when nobody else speaks 'sock monkey'

Chris Forrest said...

This is how I feel when I take my kids up to school in the morning. :) Ha! You have a neat style. I liked your info on Photoshop.

Michelle Lana said...

Jim Pearson said...

I like this one a lot - great concept, great characters and another lovely palette. Dang, your line work is clean!

Cuffe said...

ha this is great...i can relate...as i always say when i get tongue tied.. words are not my friends...

Ammon said...

great cartoon!

paula said...

Oh, yeah...This one is strong all-around! Perfect that each characters seem oblivious to the fact nobody can understand them! And, nope...I do my stuff all on the tablet/computer, roughs and all. That is, unless I'm wanting to work away from the studio (outside, coffee shop, etc.), I might work on roughs elsewhere.

This is my favorite! your wobbly linework and colors are so good. Are the lines done in Illustrator?

Michelle said...

I love your characters. The monkey is great. I love your idea on how to show the lack of communication here.

Duncan said...

Love the use of pattern and colours - they all match too - he's looks a plaid person too.

Doug said...

Thank you all for the comments!

...and Jeff, this is Photoshop. You can see how I do it if you take a look at the rest of my blog. I have a tutorial posted.

What a terrific idea! Well done! I like it a lot.

moverlow said...

I should charge you a fee for capturing using family as reference . . . or maybe I should pay you for the portrait! Either way very fun and a great job as always. Love your work.

communication is the fabric of their lives...

SocMo's needs are so simple, really... why does everyone insist on complicating things? (Really like how you used pattern in the talk bubbles.)

Pickledog said...

Ha! Super funny cartoon. SocMo is the only one I could understand. I did take Plaid in highschool, but that was a long time ago.
