Dracula comic book cover parodies.

On my other blog, harryborgmanart.blogspot.com I am showing some artwork that I did illustrating a Dracula story. On this site I am posting a few of my recent comic book cover parodies that I did using the same art. These were all created on the computer using Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0

My cats are happy I'm back !

Coming back home from a vacation is always interesting. My cats won't leave my side and follow me wherever I go. Iguess that they missed old dad. They also are very aware when I'm going to leave, the minute I bring out the luggage they get edgy. Here are a few of the comic strips I've done featuring Jpeg, Tiff and Laura.

Back to Winter !

As usual, we had a great time in Puerto Vallarta. We always stay at the Fiesta Americana, our favorite hotel. My wife, Jeanne, and I had vacationed there since the mid '80s. Oddly enough, Gloria also spent a lot of time in PV, she's a writer and photographer and used to do some promotion for Las Tules, a time-share condo right next door to the Fiesta Americana. There are a vast number of photo and sketching possibilities in this area. Below is a shot of a river near the hotel.

It's very interesting to experiment when adding color to drawings, here I even colored the line art creating an unusual effect. These were all done using Adobe Photoshop Elements 2.0

Coloring cartoons and other line art on the computer is easy and also a joy. It's much faster than adding color using traditional mediums. You can do two or three versions for evaluation purposes, a real advantage.
