Halloween is coming soon, so here’s me drawing Frankenstein’s monster to get you in the mood. Don’t be scared, it’s just over 2 minutes long. Enjoy:
I have a huge LEGO collection. (It’s kind of ridiculous.) And while it’s fun having bin after bin of brick, all that plastic had pretty much filled my office. And, frankly, all the finding and sorting and organizing was making building more overwhelming than fun.
So I packed it all up and stored it away in my crawlspace, except for one medium sized bucket filled with random parts. Now I have some elbow room to write and draw again, and the limited number of available bricks has really spurred my creativity. And in that spirit, here’s 41 tiny little LEGO spaceships to show how much you can create with just a few pieces:
Not bad huh? And that medium bucket of bricks is still mostly full. I’ll post some more spaceships as I build them.
But if you’re still in the mood for more LEGO, , here’s some other stuff of mine you might like:
This edition’s answers come from subscriber Adam Halpern at Indicator Warehouse.
1) Tell me a little about yourself and your job.
I’ve always been interested in knowing how things work. Be it machines, social systems, and most of all, people. It’s probably why I feel so at home in the day trading world. It’s a mix of modern technology, economics, human emotion and psychology that swirls up into a waveform shown on a price chart.
2) How do you use the cartoons from your Andertoons subscription?
The cartoons are great additions to articles I write on the blog -
I also use them for social marketing -
3) Please give me an example of how someone has responded to a cartoon.
The cartoons are “Like” magnets on social networks.
4) Which cartoon is your personal favorite?
The personal favorite is the custom cartoon you made for me years ago:
5) Where online can people find out more about you?
6) Do you have any questions for me?
Do you ever need help coming up with captions for the cartoons?
When I was a little too busy with custom cartoons a few months back I tried using a writer to help out and give me some more choices. But I found that clients were still mostly choosing the cartoons that I wrote, so I stopped using her and reworked my schedule to allow more time for my own writing.
It’s not always easy, but creating the gags is my favorite part.
Thanks so much to Adam for his time and terrific answers!
