Gordon, what is the inspiration for your cartoons?

My inspiration? Hmmm. Well, I was brought up by a couple of inveterate punsters (my parents). I grew up with gags about the Infernal Revenue and Need a phone number? Call Inflammation. So, thats where the word play aspect of my humor comes from, although Ive probably taken it a number of steps further than my parents ever quite imagined I would.

The 3D aspect of my toons springs from my career in automotive design (CAD) and a couple of stints working in commercial photography. I discovered 3D rendering in the early 90s, and thought it would be a perfect vehicle for my weird sense of humor. I bought my first NT workstation and Lightwave 3D in 1996, but found that it would take AGES just to do one toon. Not acceptable. So, I waited until hardware, software, and content were available and affordable. I launched my website, FotoonZ , in December of 2005, and Ive been posting two new cartoons a week ever since. The positive response has been very gratifying, and now serves as a primary source of my inspiration and motivation. Thanks so much!!
