New Colorist!

Monday, June 27, 2016 - 09:35 AM

SHORT VERSION: Sheldon has a new colorist, starting today: Beth Morrell!

LONG VERSION: Little fun-fact about me: I’m color blind in the red-green part of the spectrum. For those not familiar with color-blindedness: It doesn’t mean a red chair is invisible to me, or that I see a red chair in black and white (Although my grandfather did! He was 100% color blind!). For me, my color-blindness just means I see a different color from what you see (...sometimes *very* different) when I’m looking at the same red or green chair you’re looking at.

WHICH WAS FINE when, at a young age, I picked an art form that was largely black-and-white. Cartooning was the perfect art form for color blindedness! Black lines on white paper! Bam! Poifect!

BUT THEN THE INTERNET CAME ALONG, and now that the print costs of color printing weren’t a factor anymore, everyone sorta-kinda started to expect color cartoons in their daily webcomics reading.

WHICH WAS FINE, as I sorta figured out workarounds using math, color spectrum guides and Photoshop, to tell me when I was coloring a red chair…red. But coloring was never natural to me.

ENTER BETH MORRELL, a super talented Washington-based artist, who’ll be coloring Sheldons going forward! Beth has an incredible eye, and creates fantastic art in her own right. And though she’ll be coloring Sheldon with a palette that’s very similar to my own, at first, I imagine she’ll start experimenting and branching out into her own subjective choices as time goes on. Which is a very long way of saying: We’re about to get some great, great coloring…starting today!

Fun Sheldon News!

Sunday, May 29, 2016 - 12:12 PM

Hey, in fun news: Last night in Memphis, SHELDON won the Silver Reuben Award from the National Cartoonists Society! Pretty neat!

Mentally, I still feel like a young kid in the cartooning world -- even though that's not at all true -- so this feels like a nice pat on the back from the heroes I grew up reading.
