Cartoons for Car People

 TGR Staff

At the end of 2018 Texas automotive writer, Jesus Garcia started Auto Toonz, a cartoon comic series featuring a star character named Bootz. Each drawing is done free hand and features a joke catered to the automotive enthusiast community. Garcia does not consider himself a professional artist by no means but does take pride and labors over what he calls his “doodles”.

Garcia started drawing at age three with a dusty photo album to prove it, but never considered it a talent. Throughout his formative years, all his school notebooks were covered with random drawings and boredom inspired scribbles. He mostly draws cars and trucks because that is all he knows. The jokes for Auto Toonz try to find a balance between obscure and obvious ranging between automotive stereotypes, automotive history, and jokes relating to what people who love cars often go through.

The Bootz character pays homage to the great Burnt Reynolds with a sharp-angled cowboy hat and high collar jacket. Bootz never leaves home without aviator sunglasses and considers cowboy boots ideal driving footwear. Simply put, Bootz is a good ol’ cowboy who prefers cars over horses.

You can see Garcia’s latest work on social media and posts multiple Auto Toonz comics per week.
