Welcome to all the Cox and Forkum fans! I'm excited to have the opportunity to open the doors to my "attic" and reveal the contents to all those who have been following my cartoon work for the last few years.
Some of it may surprise you. The paintings, for instance, are a body of work I'm into right now and represent an idea I've had for a long time: Combining my passion for cartooning with trompe-l'oeil techniques. I find the contrast between what seems to be three-dimensional objects and texture with commentary-tinged caricatures a fascinating avenue of expression.
So, feel free to root around the different catergories of art I've created, find your own favorites and leave a comment or two. This attic could use a little fresh air and sunlight. You can count on seeing something new almost daily.
SPECIAL NOTE: I think it's important to acknowlege my dear friend's creative assistance and insightful encouragement in this new direction of my work. I can say very confidently, I owe a great deal to him. And I don't think I'll ever be able to repay him, either.
Thank you so very much, Allen Forkum- my old friend and partner in crime.
