A recap after 2 years cartooning.

Written by Ed Dyer 24th May 2010

Iabcdve been studying, working out and keeping a regular routine that involves a strong work ethic and dicipline. Yes Iabcdm thinking the same thing, “Who are you and what have you done with Ed?!” …relax, Iabcdm exaggerating.

On the 11th of April 2010 I celebrated an unofficial 2 year anniversary as the Luna Park cartoonist. A weird little milestone sure, but a mile stone none the less. Since then a lot has been in the works mostly Iabcdve since taken stock of the images Iabcdve produced over those 2 years and thought wow, they have done their job in cementing my career (nothing like some evidence to back up the claims) and to this day I still get asked “Did you draw all these?”  To which the response is invariably “Yes, everything you see here is my work!” I then began to think about the question and why it would always be asked of my wall display, sure every image was indeed mine, however I can draw in about a dozen distinct styles, my realistic stuff was competing for wall space with my cartoon style, the ultra simple was mixed up with colour prints and the end result though interesting resembled a collage of works by separate artists not just myself.

So since last week on my regular commute home from Luna Park, I began idly sketching (when all is said and done drawing for me will always begin and end as a hobby) a caricature of the X-men character wolverine, he took the majority of the trip, which after change overs can be anywhere from 40 mins to an hour and a half. I brought him home and realised, this is the style Iabcdm truly comfortable with.

So began my new mission
