Quick bit of time travel. I've set the clock to UK time now. I've just scanned 10 cartoons into the computer. I used good old fashioned grey watercolour wash for half tones. It actually looks grey-blue, but scanned in as 'greys' does the trick. I don't really think you can replicate the effect of watercolour tones on the computer that well, but, if you colour the half-toned cartoon with a low opacity, the colour lets the variations in the tone show through, and that really does look hand-painted.

I'm going to grab a bit lunch and head to Chester for the racing. I should get there around 3 o'clock. If I take a sketch pad, it's work.
