Mike Lynch Cartoon in November 2011 READER'S DIGEST

I have a cartoon in this month's Reader's Digest.


It's for their "Off Base" section, which focuses on military life.

OK, above is the cartoon I sent and below is the cartoon as it's printed in the November 2011 issue.  This is my own opinion, but I think it's more successful when vertical, like my original submission above, than horizontal like below. But maybe that's just me.

The cartoon was drawn on typing paper with a Micron Pigma marker. I used a kids' watercolor paint set for the colors. I wanted to get a watercolory feel using PhotoShop, but after about ten minutes fooling around with that, I went old school style. After it was dry, I tweaked the colors a bit in PhotoShop.
