Feels like it took forever and ever - but the final rewards shipped this morning. The biggest prints are now working their way around the globe to my big backer's homes. Thank you all so much - for your financial contribution, your patience and most importantly, your belief. I am excited to hear how everything is received.
As this brings the Cartoonuum to a proper close, I wanted to update you on my life and work. I am currently sitting in the gallery pictured below, at my solo San Francisco Show, "Other Funny Pictures by Ray Sumser," at the Treehouse Gallery. This is my last big Hurrah in California. In July I will rack up work hours, travel to San Diego for Comic-Con and then I move to New York City August 1.
It is an exciting time. The Cartoonuum inspired me to make a third giant picture of the Cartoon Universe. This time it is a pen and ink drawing that I will color digitally. That process will allow me to create greater detail without damaging my body the way I did making so big a painting. I'm also starting to see the threads of a plot that might become my first real narrative Comic Book / Cartoon creation. I'll keep you informed about these projects as they come more to life.
I can't thank you enough for helping me get to the next level and phase in my life and career.
