The Adventures of Kevin Koastie - The Year in Review. (Part 3).

   Now it's time to show the final episodes of The Adventures of Kevin Koastie posted so far, so that everyone will be up to date! This may become an annual event, or I may finally figure out how to archive my cartoons so that anyone who wants to read them in order can just click on the appropriate link and see them whenever they want to. I know it's possible - I seen it! But for now, it's kind of fun for me to see them all lined up in one (actually three) posts.
   But first, a little new art!

3-Point Christmas Globe. 12/11/14

   I've done 4-point, 5-point, 6-point and even 8-point globes, but then I thought, "How about going the other way? Why not a 3-point globe?" So I gave it a shot! It almost turned into another 6-point globe, but I caught myself before I'd gone too far. However I did draw a few lines I regretted, and so I had to redraw the same lines in the same places throughout the design so at least the final product would be symmetrical!
   Well, I couldn't leave the concept without at least one more shot at getting it right. I thought blending a square with a circle was a challenge - but blending a triangle with a circle was even stranger!
   Heh! That reminds me of the caveman who invented the triangular wheel. He insisted that it was an improvement over the square wheel, because it illiminated one 'bump' in each revolution!

Black & White Test #48.
   This one looks like 3 acorns playing 'ring around the rosey' to me. We'll see how it looks when it's all colored.
   Now, where was I? Oh yeah, the final episodes of Kevin Koastie!

First, to help the continuity, the last cartoon from my last post -
and another hat-tip to JW for the picture of a fire-breathing penguin!

(The Penguin 'Knows'.)

   This cartoon may need some explanation. I had the idea that Elves, being a psychic race, can 'influence' the minds of others, but are themselves easily 'influenced' by what other people think of them. If you believe that Elves are "Good", they HAVE to be "Good", at least when they're around you! For a race bent on World Domination, this is a serious set-back! OK, proceed!

   At this point, I ran out of 6" by 9" drawing paper, and had to buy a new sketchbook of drawing paper, 8" by 10". So now I'm back to a 4-panel format.

   Lot's of fantasies revolve around someone being "the chosen one", so I decided to try something different!

   This is my take on the "Idiocracy" theme - from the point of view of the elves, the dummies have taken over the world!

 Wouldn't it be nice if we could just blame it all on the Elves?

   Well, I haven't run out of ideas yet, so I'll draw another brand-new cartoon this weekend, and show off some more artwork as well. If you've read down this far, you must be a real fan, and I thank you most sincerely!
