I recently completed a five-week course on cartooning at the Toledo Museum of Art taught by Wes Booher from The Blade’s Art Department. One of our last assignments was to draw a musician out of our imagination. I chose to draw a cowpoke with a guitar that you see here. Then I made it into a QuiltToon™ . My son pointed out that I made him left-handed which I really hadn’t even noticed…so I called him Lefty. I enjoyed the class and learned a lot about drawing which should help me in my creative endeavors.
The QuiltToon™ is 17″ W X 18″ H. It is machine pieced, top-stitched and embroidered. Fusible webbing was used and the face was painted.
