It's also probably a less precise and taxing form of drawing than design and perhaps more fun to do (I'm guessing, never having been a designer).

Of course some cartoonists are aiming to be grotesque (the great Gerald Scarfe) in which case they no doubt are trying to find out how far they can go and the drawing still be recognizable. Either way you are experimenting on somebody's face to see what you can get away with. It's fun.
It's one of those skills which I started showing interest since my engineering 1st year in 1990. Once moved to the US, I made a lot out of it and continue to do so (IP/patents); those days it was R&D job for a largest company. Now, more like a principal designer but not for living. I'll pursue design skills for another 10-15 years out of passion. It's so much fun to do.

I tried Pottery few times for a change (wanted to do it; Star Trek influence). I love creating objects out of nothing. I had so much fun with my pals whenever I used to visit India. We felt like going back to kid age; played with mud, paints and so on. Some of my US and Europe pals enjoyed a lot I wish to try my hands in the art of Ice Sculpting as fell in love when I visited Scandinavia. Unfortunately, not feasible in tropical countries! Perhaps it's destined to happen in future, with my better half...

Re: Tales from the Locker Room - vote a player into the comic!

I'm currently busy drawing Episode 5 (should be out just before Roland Garros starts) but I've already written Episode 6. The thing is, there are four parts in #6 that I haven't cast a player into yet and I don't know who to choose. They are all small speaking parts but it doesn't really matter all that much which players they are. So I've added a poll and I'm letting people decide. Choose 4 from the 10 in the poll. I promise to honour the result.

Don't worry if your fave isn't in the poll. That mighht just mean that I already have plans to put her in another episode.

Re: Tales from the Locker Room - vote a player into the comic!

I think Nadia and Julia have a lot of comic-strip potential, you would even have multiple options which way to go with them I think.

I also think you should do an homage to Tintin, with Flipper in the starring role obviously

Re: Tales from the Locker Room - vote a player into the comic!

I couldn't decide between any of them so I voted all of them up, which effectively makes my vote equal to zero.

Cibulkova taking an early lead, and I have to say she'd be funny to draw in this one.

I didn't take the time to read your post in detail before voting.

If it's only a bit part in which players are interchangeable, I would definitely not vote for Nadia, Jools or Flipper, because I could see them in a starring role in a future episode. Can I change my vote to Angie and Sori?

Being in this one doesn't rule them out of a bigger part in a later episode.
