Welcome to my BLOG. I post my weekly comic strips here and other articles about comics and cartooning, mostly. There's some miscellaneous pictures in the earlier posts. My "business card" website is RELIABLECOMICS.COM. I also operate GLUYASWILLIAMS.COM. Look around.

Today I added a little bit of new stuff to gluyaswilliams.com, and put most of the illustrations section back online. There's a new image for the main page, too, that looks kind of snazzy.
Anyhow, this is the first site I've made that uses CSS, so if it doesn't look the same on your browser as it does in the image up above, let me know...

How Animated Cartoons Were Made
Here's a few pages from The Complete Guide to Professional Cartooning by Gene Byrnes. The text in this section is credited to Fred Quimby, producer of most (or all?) of MGM's 40s and 50s cartoon shorts, but most likely written by somebody else. Lots of photos of late-40s MGM staff, including Joe Barbera, Bill Hanna, Tex Avery and Scott Bradley. Also, model sheets, paint mixers and more. Hope you like it!
Let me know you're interested and I'll try to post more from this great book...

Super Duck Comic
UPDATE: According to this post at The Beat, Joe Edwards, regular artist on Super Duck, passed away last Thursday, 2/8. I presume he did this story, but I'm not sure. Either way, R.I.P. Joe Edwards.

The guy on the left is basically Shermy from Peanuts, but grown up. I think I'll eventually use him in a comic and his personality will be based on a guy I used to work with in Chicago named Larry. On the right is Welby from Reliable Comics #1 (for sale). As far as drawings go, these aren't bad, but I'd like them to be a little looser; I'll have to keep working at it.
