Love your cartoons...and your sense of humor!

I just had a thought :
Could you do a cartoon of me ? What would you charge ? and is this something that others of us artists might like ? A personal piece of Weiss art for our studio wall.

Hey , it could be a whole new adventure in your life of cartooning (as if you don't have enough to keep you busy )


Becki Hesedahl
Great cartoons! Well I didn't draw people in speedos in school (not sure they were a thing back then) but I sure got in trouble a lot for drawing in class! In trouble at home and in school! And in college my mother begged me to take cooking and typing classes instead of drawing those naked people all the time!

Shirley DeLaet
I love this cartoon! As an individual I have been many things, but being an artist has always been in my spirit and my heart.
Art is my lifeline. So trouble . . . beware!

Terry puckett
Thanks for the great cartoons. You are encouraging me to share mine. We allneed a good chuckle.

Patricia Stafford
Nice to see you wound up using your creative genius talents for good, John P. Weiss! :)

Okay, confession time. While usually I'm not much into drawing, I will admit to doing a sketch of a math teacher in college that came out as a pretty darn good comical rendering. It was just too much to resist ... he looked exactly like a mouse-human hybrid, with a crown-like puffy tuft of gray hair surrounding a bald head, a bit of a protruding belly, and he always wore the same white shirt that looked like an undershirt every day that bulged out over his black trousers.

Have no idea what happened to that drawing. But the funny thing is, if I hadn't have done the sketch, I bet I wouldn't remember the teacher as well.

Cindi Yaklich
Thanks so much! What a fun way to express yourself. Have to say I too was a doodler - still am.

Walter Paul Bebirian
I like the last one - I see a sale being made! :-)

John P. Weiss
CG- Thank you!

JBx- I used to do cartoon commissions but other projects ended up taking more of my time. I appreciate the thought, though. Maybe I could become the cartoon John Singer Sargent for today's artists and creatives?!

Becki- I used to get in trouble for drawing in class too. No speedo cartoons, but I'm sure my teachers didn't appreciate some of my caricatures!

Shirley- Thanks, I concur. As Popeye said, "I am what I am!"

Terry- Definitely share your cartoons, life is too short to take too seriously!

Patricia- I did a whole series of cartoons of my coworkers as animals. We all had a good laugh!

Cindi- Here's to the doodlers of the world!!

Walter- Thanks! Gotta love those sales!

Elisabeth Cline
Cartooning is not easy. Love your work.
