LOOKIT WHAT THE CAT DRAGGED IN...

...It's ANGORA NAPKIN!!!!!

I LOVE Angora Napkin, and I hope you like my fan-art above! This graphic novel, turned recently-completed animated pilot, is created by Troy Little and Nick Cross and it is AMAZING good fun. Buy the graphic novel here and visit the official blog here to VOTE and help get the pilot picked up for a cartoon series on Teletoon in Canada!

The animation world definitely needs something this cool right now, so DO IT UP!!! Mallory commands it!


Also-
COMIC-CON ALERT!!
Wow, it's already that time of year again. I'm off to San Diego. Who's going to Comic-Con this weekend?? I'll be wandering around aimlessly on Friday and Saturday and will also be at John K's booths with Kali and the gang. Times are here:

Usually I'd tell everyone to check back here afterwards for my full Comic-Con report in photos, but things are different this year: Just follow my LIVE TWEETINGS and get the scoop while it's all happening! Score!!

Be back in a week! BTW, if you find me at the Con and say hi, you'll get a free hug! (high-five, if you're a dude)

ONE LAST LOOK AT THE 80's


To be honest, the past three 80's tributes I've drawn and posted here are really the only animated shows produced during that decade that I actually watched. All the other cartoons I watched were already older classics; Looney Tunes, Disney, Tom & Jerry and so on. So today here's some cartoon drawings of two very special LIVE-ACTION 80s shows that were, and still are, very dear to my heart.

If you are an IRL friend of mine then you'll know that even to this day, I LOVE Fraggle Rock. I think it's only proper that I finally draw them. My final piece is the photo above. Here are some of my inks below!


And now..... let us do The Dance of Joy!!!
Perfect Strangers is a show about the corniest characters living together in the corniest situation, produced during the corniest years of the American sitcom. It's so corny.. that's it BEYOND awesome. It's such a great show!!!

Who couldn't love Balki and Cousin Larry?

Oh-kay,
I think I'm all 80s'ed out. Thanks for looking, everyone! Now to get back to preparing for Comic-Con next week. Check out one of the shirts John K. will be selling at his booth!

JRAWING JIJI

This is Jiji's arch-enemy, the Arrowhead™ brand water bottle cap. She goes INSANE with this thing. It rolls around and she chases after it, then once she finally captures it she holds it just like it's buried treasure.

This is what Jiji does on top of my head. Followed soon by slumber.

This is Jiji staring at us in the kitchen as she thinks we are preparing food for her. Below that is what happens when it just turned out to be me making a turkey sandwich for myself.
We think she has what it takes to be a kitty model. What do you think of her diva pose?


It's late. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BEN!


(UPDATE: Never OVER-estimate the United States postal service! I would have made this post on the correct day, three days ago, but these pieces took extra long to get delivered so I had to keep them under wraps for a little while longer. ANYway...)

Go wish the dynamic brothers Ben and Scott a most happiest of birthdays this week! Ben is one of my best friends and when I'm feeling uninspired or crummy about my own art (which is way too often), he's one of the only people that can kick my ass and force me to bounce right back to being motivated. So if you like any of my cartoons, go and thank him for being one of my biggest influences!

I really like how my Betty came out. I tried to do true justice to the character by drawing her in the original dog-girl style, complete with puppy ears, that Grim Natwick helmed. Here's my ink below. Boop-a-doop!

What's interesting about the piece above is that it's my first time coloring with actual fancy markers that are used by all those bigshot cartoonists you like. Actually, they are Kali's fancy markers that she let me borrow. What a gal!

The girl on the left is our shared obsession, 60's socialite Edie Sedgwick!

And if you don't know who the middle character is by this time, then shame on you because you shouldn't even be at this blog! Don't forget, Jo is coming soon to a webcomic near you!

She even created a comic for her beloved creator on his special day.

bweeeheheheheheheheheheeee

DUMMCOMICS.COM 2: THE SEARCH FOR THE RETURN OF THE VENGENCE

Remember earlier this year when I won a guest spot on Dumm Comics?

Well........

Here's my submission! I hope everyone likes it, but most of all, I hope it lives up to a mere iota of the greatness of Ricky Garduno's creation. And I want to thank him and the entire Dumm Comics gang for throwing this contest, and for every comic strip they create and share with us undeserving heathens!

Show 'em some looooove.
