DC's Cartoon Cartoons #14 Splash Page


I've only drawn one or two splash pages for DC, and this is one of them. I'm still pretty happy with it, after all these years. Which I was trying to figure out, and can't. I want to say I drew it in 2001, but it was probably the summer of 2002. Anyway, It's far better than some SGC2C pages I drew years later, and that's probably due to the fact that this was the ONLY thing I was working on during that time. I got up and worked on it all day and into the evening, everyday, for about a month. I was happier than a pig in $h!t, especially because drawing comics was not my main profession. Every once in a while my freelance schedule will align just right, and I'll get to take my time on some pages. I've got this one up on my wall. As I say all the time on this blog, I sure miss drawing these characters.

Ooh I have that comic, it was the one where they baked Zorak an unusual birthday cake that tried to eat him.
Now when I look at it, I'll think how hard you worked on it!

Does the "Nov '00" at the top of the image not indicate this was drawn prior to 2001?

Thanks for pointing that out. I think you may be correct, which leads me to think that I have the wrong book title. I guess I'll have to lug the old comic boxes down from the closet shelves and find this issue.

It was Cartoon Network Starring Space Ghost Coast to Coast #15 November 2000 (I had it close to hand in one of my cupboards)
