Comparing and contrasting 2 appealing cartoon approaches.
These are 2 of my favorite cartoonists. They are both working in someone else's "house style" but are each bringing their own touch to the comics.

Howie Post's style is made up almost entirely of 40s animated cartoon shapes and supplemented with his own abstract design quirks.

Owen Fitzgerald's style looks on the surface also to be a 40s animated cartoon style - but it is enriched with acute observation of life and more traditional (non-cartoony) drawing skills.

More to come..

Oh and thank Eeva for sending in this gem of a family from the Ozarks
