Drawing Dinos For Father’s Day and Golf Jokes
One the second day of my drawing adventures, I sketched a unicorn from a Draw So Cute video. After that, I drew whatever was on the kitchen table: my hand, a vase, a person etc. I’ve been told you can’t learn to draw cartoons until you can draw from life but I shan’t be creating eternal works of genius. I love funny but lack the guts or speed for stand-up comedy. Why not do cartoons?
With that in mind, I bought myself a handful of plastic dinosaurs. I miss Gary Larson and the Far Side comics. He did great dinosaurs. One of my favorites showed a huddle of shifty-looking dinosaurs smoking. The caption was: “The real reason dinosaurs became extinct.”
With Father’s Day around the corner, and my athletic Dad in mind, I can think of only one thing more dangerous to dinosaurs than smoking: Golfing.
Dinosaurs Can Ruin a Foursome
Here are some ideas for panels to draw on a paleolithic golf course. There should be volcanoes and palm trees and dragonflies like helicopters. In fact, maybe some of the sports commentary can be broadcast from up in a dragonfly helicopter.
“The real reason dinosaurs went extinct“
- Dinos couldn’t get out of the sand trap (show dinos sinking, as if into a tar pit)
- Dinos couldn’t hack the water hazards (show dinos floating out to sea)
- Dinos couldn’t hit it out of the rough (as they look for lost balls in the tall grass, dinos wearing plus fours get ambushed by tough dinos )
- Dinos lacked drive (show T-Rex unable to swing the club low enough to hit the ball off the tee)
Day 3 Update
Here they are, Father’s Day cartoons for my golf-crazy Dad’s card. They’re not great art but my Dad will like them…
