Drawing Single Panel Gag Cartoons - How A Cartoon Is Created From Start To Finish

Guns are in the news and guns are popular, so I decided to knock out this particular single panel gag cartoon free hand on basic copy paper using a fine point Sharpie marker. The finished art was scanned into Photoshop and the gag line underneath added in Arial font then colorized. If you could have conjured up a funnier gagline, it would be great to see your comment(s) / suggestions . . . those could be used as future fodder for more of these short video clips.
I am thanking Dan at danosongs.com for allowing the use of the musical score added to this video. To see more of my cartoons: danscartoons.com
