There's something that is very special about creating and designing a cartoon. You have to put all the elements together just right- so that the image and the caption can be understood in a flash- with the punchline or message fully understood. This all has to happen in a split second. Cartoons that you have to mull over to figure out are generally not a success. Every part of the image has to be just right, and without distracting from the key message. It's like making a puzzle from scratch. Really gets you in the zone once you get started.
I have a Facebook Page now, it is https://www.facebook.com/QuantumLeapCartoons?ref=ts , or just type in "Quantum Leap Cartoons" in the search field on Facebook. You can see all my cartoons and lots of comments from various and sundry friends- and you are welcome to join the soiree.

I have been neglecting this blog. If I don't read it myself, no one else will! I have set up my own website, www.QLCartoons.com . This is where the cartoonsbyshelli are posted, and it is Quantum Leap Cartoons. I'll get my most recent artwork posted on this blog as well. www.QLCartoons.com . I have lots to say about my cartoon adventures and will note it all here.
