The Art of Creating Comics
Peter Mansbridge on Peter Mansbridge
Last week we presented a pretty creative (and funny) drawing tip from cartoonist Matthew Forsythe. He made it seem so easy, capturing the likeness of one of Canada’s most beloved newscasters in an illustration.
We then asked you to send us your inspired drawings of the news man himself. We were totally impressed by what we received, as was he.
We asked Peter Mansbridge to select the one image he felt most captured his likeness, and he did. Congratulations Sherry Sakamoto! For your bang-up job you will receive a Canada Writes journal.
We also want to thank everyone who took the time to grab a pencil or ballpoint pen and send us their illustrations: Zara Alexis, Gerard de Souza, Beth Ed, Katie Guiney, Liam McKenna, Dawn Mockler, Emily Murphy, Patrick Murphy, David Parkins, Dave Rosen, Barbara Wittner, and our friends at CBC Live. You made this an exciting week!
