Chato Stewart’s cartoon Notes:
Today’s Psychtoon has me tapping into my Over-Medicated cartoon series. While the joke should stand alone as funny (at least I hope humorous) with the zombie medicine bottle chasing the Pear (In my world Pears represents peer to peers, consumers/survivors/patients/psychiatric clients).
Now normally I have the basic idea for the cartoon already prefigured in my head, the difficulty comes in the ability of my limited skills to draw exactly what I am seeing. As I improve my skills I am able to incorporate more details and the drawings actually look more or less how I see them in my head.
Example would be that this cartoon was going to be about medication and rashes, but I just did not feel it was the right caption. I knew I wanted to use word Psycho-meds, in fact it was that term that gave me the whole idea for the cartoon. In the end I felt the title ‘Are Psycho-Meds Giving You The Heebeegeebees‘. Besides I always like the term/slang heebeegeebee.
In the end, I think my zombie medicine bottle conveys a poignant point and to the avid reader will be able to take away a few laughs or giggles from this particular cartoon.
If you see a comparison between the term “re-fill me, re-fillme” and another movie called classic you could be right… It’s just missing the name Seymour which I removed instead of “feed me Seymour”, I was going to use a refill me Seymour, but I think that this complicated the cartoon.
And those are my notes for today’s cartoon. I hope you enjoy. By the way if you’re wondering what medication is, it’s lithium.
