4 UR Mental Health: Life Of Chato [cartoons]

Over the years, I’ve made myself the subject of a lot of my mental health humor comic cartoons. Sometimes indirectly, by drawing situations or  subject matter/s I found funny!! Other times, directly… I just drew it about me.  In this gallery, you will see how I “see” myself as a cartoon.

The first cartoon is how I remember myself in school…trust me; it’s no exaggeration!! I was a bit hard to handle…putting it mildly by using proper English!!  The rest of the cartoons are pretty much self-explanatory.

I hope you’re getting to know me better through my toons!!  (When we read an author’s book or look at an artist’s exhibit…don’t we learn “something” about the person behind the work?! )  Hope You Enjoy what you see and learn!! What do you reveal about yourself creatively? (either indirectly or directly?) What motivates you to find creative outlets? We all need “positive” coping skills to deal with many daily stresses, huh?!

Click on the image to enlarge it.  It will take you to the image page.  If you still want the image larger, just click the image once more and you will see just that cartoon.  To get back to the gallery just hit your back button.
