THE RUTHI POSTOW STAFFING CARTOON COMPANY

 

Cartoon drawing of Mr. Magoo, soft-coated Wheaten terrier

Mr. Magoo

I had what I thought was a great idea – to draw cartoon faces of all the people on my staff for the website. I figured it would be a quick and fun project so I jumped right in. That was 17 months ago and I’m almost finished.

The first I drew was, of course, the Chairman of the Board, Mr. Magoo, soft-coated Wheaten terrier.
He was easy – he has no bad side.

 

The next was going to be my business partner, Jenni O’Toole. But she wasn’t so easy. Drawing after drawing went, crumpled, into the trash. I couldn’t get her whole face to come together and I totally couldn’t get the mouth right. The best one looked like the Cheshire cat. I decided to put her aside and go on to draw the staff.
Maura and Colleen were easy. Get the hair right and the nose and mouth will follow.

I thought I did a pretty good job with Alex, but he said he would really prefer to have a professional do his face. I hadn’t

captured his essence.

I gave up on his essance and went on to Andrew and Emily, our recruiters in the temporary division.

Wendy was by far the easiest, because she obliged me by posing

which allowed me to capture her best side.

 

 

 

 
I had just two more to do before I had to face Jenni again.

CARTOON DRAWING OF LESLIE LEE-CHUN OF RUTHI POSTOW STAFFING

LESLIE

Drawing Leslie, our resident fashionista, wasn’t too hard,
but she was disappointed
that I didn’t do justice to her outfit

Then I came to Marcia. She’s our business manager. She’s scary. She demanded over a dozen proofs. After she finally chose one, I had go back and add a soft lighting effect. Talk about prima donnas!!

At last she picked one and I had nobody left to draw except Jenni.

I tried but STILL couldn’t get Jenni’s face to come together.

Finally, I captured her eyes – both of them – but I still couldn’t get the rest of her face or stop drawing that Cheshire cat smile.

 

Then I got a brilliant idea that meant I didn’t have carry the burden of drawing her whole face.

All I needed was to draw a wall and have Jenni

looking over it.

Problem solved!
