For those who wish to draw more

You bought a spoon to a spork fight November 1, 2009

I hope everyone had a good Day 1 of DrawMo (though really, isn’t ever day another chance for a new start at drawing more? Let’s say yes.). I did something light and fun to start with and combined two of my favorite things: fake news and Kate Beaton’s comic Hark, a Vagrant! Ms. Beaton posted some pages from her sketchbook a while back, which inspired me to fire up the Daily Show/Colbert Report’s InDecision 2008 episode [spoiler: Obama won!] and try to sketch Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert in Kate Beaton’s style. Below, a funny sketch of Jon looking panicked and three less-successful attempts at John Oliver (as a Kewpie?), the cockatoo, Colbert with a chin tumor and Stewart as a creepy uncle. If nothing else, it was a fun attempt at something different, which is very much in the spirit of DrawMo.
