If you were to ask me what my favorite cartoon character was as a child, it’s easily the Pink Panther. I remember waking up early on Saturday mornings to watch cartoons, it was always the classics that got my attention. The Rocky and Bullwinkle, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tom and Jerry, Popeye and watching Tom Hatten draw the characters! He was a big influence on me and wanting to be an artist from a young age.
So, as usual, I did not set out to paint the Pink Panther, but it showed up in this abstract and I decided to stop and let it be! This entire painting is done with mixed media gel pens.
