Dragon Cartoons (by Kate!)



Just about every night, before bed, Kate draws while listening to an audiobook.  She's got a great confident line.  (I've never been very good at cartooning so this is fascinating to me.  She gets it from her dad!) She fills up pages and pages--too much to keep up with--but I picked out just a few to share here.  I love their expressiveness.  She does great things with eyes and mouths.

I really like the one in the lower left-hand corner... something about the eyes and mouth together give it a lot of expression! Nice job.

What an artist! I think someday she will be writing and illustrating books that everyone will love and adore. I'd love to know what was going through the mind of the one on the right!

Great job, Kate. I like how you worked on showing the dragons' faces from different angles and with different emotions. :)

Hi Kate! You don't know me but I'm a friend of your mom. I've long admired HER art work. When she started sharing yours, I was hooked! You have amazing talent and it is fun watching your talent grow as you get older. Keep up the good work!

Hello Kate. Your dragons are amazing! You did a really good job on them. My favorite is the one on the bottom. Is it a boy or a girl dragon? I'm going to guess it's a girl dragon because she looks like she has long eyelashes. And even though she looks scared, I think she looks cute, too. Keep drawing - I can't wait to see more of your creations!

Katie, I am impressed with the details on the eyes. They really show a lot of emotion. Keep up the drawing! I enjoyed looking at your pictures.

Kate, your dragon sketches are awesome! You're so great a facial expressions and body language. There are tons of people that can sketch realistic looking animals but can't make them expressive. You've gotten the hardest part down and will.p continue to get better and better with age. You've definitely got a future in illustration and cartoons!

Kate is a great artist! It looks like she might have a future in comics. :-)

Kathy said...

Kate - you are a very talented artist. I love the faces and how expressive they are. I especially love the one on the right hand side. I think it looks like a lady dragon who just saw something that made her say "AUGHH!!"
Keep drawing Kate. I love your artwork.

Very nice job, Kate! :)

I really love the one with the speech bubble because the expression on that dragon's face is a great match for what it's saying. :)
