Project Information

here are more of those cartoon classic animals. I counted and I have done more than 28 pictures. each one has it own look to it and will look even more distinctivewhen I decide if to color or to leave as is and do more burning to them. I have found that there are alot of different pictures out there that will look good wood burned. you have to look close at each one to see if you can bring out, what a true picture you have before you is. I hope you all enjoy looking at them as I have had fun burning them. My fingers are a little sore but in the end it has all been worth it. Enjoy my Cartoon Pictures.

I am planning on coloring a few of them and shading the rest. I am waiting on Lady knight to come over in the spring but may have to go ahead and pick up some paints to paint them. What kind of paint do you recommend I use on these.
I am burning all these on the back of old use paneling sheets. I will have to break down an buy some luen plywood. I have found that Luen Plywood has a light, almost a white pigment to it and I think would be really nice to do some wood burning on. I am going to go to the lumber lard and look at what this lumber company carries. I am going to be making alot of picture frame to house most of these pictures. \
Any suggestions from all of you would help me out alot on the finishing of these figures.
Hope you all enjoy and wait to see how they end up.

Your getting better all the time. I think the Birch plywood is the best. Plus it has a nice grain figure for the background.

Nice work, Jim.

Are there any copyright issues here?

Giving due credit there shouldn't be an issue with showing them, but if they aren't his characters he can't sell them…. I could post a drawing of any Disney, Warner Bros, Hanna Barbara cartoon for it's own sake, but I certainly couldn't use one in an advertisement for anything (except perhaps on a flyer on a college campus ;) or put them on anything I'd be selling. - except perhaps as a parody.

I've got an idea I'm noodling on, involving a couple of Picasso's sketches. Not something I can sell, but I'll definately be showing the results here (anybody would know where the artwork really came from.) I'm considering putting them (if and when they get made) in a local art auction to benefit the library, as I can't sell them.

In fact the works might be old enough to have moved into public domaign… No, if I remember correctly, the copyright on an artists/writers work is good for 50 - 75 years after their death (depending on when they were born…)

I think it's 50 years…
so re: colouring book pix, if you can find an old (hmm 50 isn't THAT old !!!) colouring book then the pix are free to use for more than personal use.
