Canned Ham!

This cartoon is also a change of design pace. I bought Amid Amidi‘s “Cartoon Modern” this Christmas and after drooling over the simplified characters I took a stab at making Family Pants a retro 1950’s look.

Again, as with the other “sans-outline” look, it sped the process a bit. Simplifying the color choices kept me from spending lots of time choosing colors. But simplifying the design is what made this process just as long as the more conventional thick outlined approach.

I’m not sure if it was the design or the gag, but this cartoon got the most attention. Although most friends and comments I’ve gotten say the outlined designs are better.
