TOP: "Conspicuous Consumption" reproduced as a 16" x 11" watercolor and ink on illustration board.
ABOVE: The original 9" x 6" cartoon as it appeared March 4, 2007 at the old Cox & Forkum site and our book, "Black and White Volume IV".
I was commissioned to turn this small cartoon into a rather large "original" for a group of people in Nashville, TN who were involved with revealing the details of Gore's tremendous kilo-watt hour usage back in 2006.
Once I blew up the original drawing to the finished proportions, it was just a matter of capturing the spirit of the ink lines and shading of the smaller one, then using subtle watercolor technique to add pizzazz.
If you happen to be a Cox and Forkum fan and you have a favorite toon you'd like reproduced large and in color, feel free to make contact at my e-mail address (see above). We'll discuss pricing based on the finished size and then I'll get started on creating a real keeper. Turn-around time is two to three days.
