A gag writer who illustrates his own ideas . . .
Rex recently dove into the technology aspect of cartooning and I want to profile a few of his latest endeavors because I think it deserves some mention, since Rex (like me), is a more "pen to paper" kind of guy. Rex now manages his own web cartoon catalog, a blog and also an online store that sells his images. Not to mention the fact he's also into Photoshopping alot of his work that really enhances the overall look and appearance - and I'll post a recent sample below:
Rex even has a cartoon appearing in the 2009 January-February issue of Saturday Evening Post which I think lends alot of creedence to the validity of his gag writing. For any cartoonist wanting gags to consider, Rex can send you an e-batch which consists of a set of ideas sent in PDF format that you can easily open and print out if you want, so you have a physical copy of the ideas for reference, which is another positive aspect of receiving his ideas electronically. If you're not familiar with Rex's cartoons, he signs all his work in his cartoon pen name of Baloo.
Rex has even adapted well to learning HTML and proved himself by incorporating Google's AdSense ads into many of his online endeavors. Way to go Rex! Here is a breakdown of all he currently is doing:
Baloo's political cartoon blog
Rex May general cartoon blog
Rex's Atlantea cartoon blog (political satire set in ancient Atlantis)
Rex's Bloomenkraft blog (science cartoons)
Rex's main site, where you can access all the other stuff
Rex's Zazzle site, where you can buy all my stuff as t-shirts, cups,
bumper stickers, etc.
