????????????

Wait, what the? Why is there a framed picture of someone's fanny, and what's it doing on this blog? Is there something we're not telling you? Is something big coming? This makes no sense. Or does it? You be the judge!!!

SKETCHIES AND PUPPIES AND BIRTHDAY CAKE

Summer's (finally) winding down, and here are more gifts and fun stuff that came out of it!

Here is the birthday card I drew for the dynamic bros. themselves, Ben and Scott!


21 years old doesn't mean too much in Canada because I think by 18 or 19 you can do pretty much all the cool stuff you want there. But it does mean that at least you guys can finally go grab a drink with us when you come to the States to visit!


Next is a drawing for my dear crafty friend Jessica, and her brand new dogtography business!!!! You seriously need to check out some of her pup pics, they are to die for. This drawing was tons of fun to do and gave me a chance to visit some of the great cartoon dogs of our time. There's quite a range of stars here: (L-R) John K's Ren Hรถek, Hanna-Barbera's Huckleberry Hound, Charles Schultz's Snoopy, Nick Park's Gromit, Disney's Georgette, and Tex Avery's Droopy.


Yay!! It's my Mariella! She can cook the most amazing-looking bowl of noodles with broccoli or tofu scramble that you've ever seen. "WE WANT NOOOODLE"


Here's a commission for Trevor! He wanted my character Kiwi taking a nice big leak on Brian from The Family Guy. Man, that show has the flattest character designs in animation history! I thought I'd take it pretty far and make my drawing of Brian as flat and awkward as humanly possible. Funny enough, it still doesn't look that far off from the real thing.


My wonderful friends Cheyenne and Anna visited from Canada over the summer and we had a huge fun-filled day in Hollyweird! Shopping, Daikoku ramen, and sharing a bottle of gin in a hot tub is indeed my idea of a great time. I doodled this in Cheyenne's sketchbook while out at lunch, and she was sweet enough to pose for the cutest picture with it! Hooray!




Well, the biggest surprise of this summer has been saved for last. What's been going on with me behind the scenes these past few months? Hmmmmm....

'TUDE III: 'TUDE AGAIN

Wow, can you believe that YEAR after YEAR, Hollywood studios are kind enough to bring us exactly what we're happily familiar with? I'm of course talking about 'TUDE!!!

Well it's that time once again. This year has been no exception, and our animated movies are continuing to be slathered all over with delicious 'TUDE. Bring it on, Marmatude!!


Will Arnett and his intergalactic best friend bring us 'TUDE from beyond the furthest reaches of the galaxy!


One eyebrow arched? Check. One eyebrow raised? Check. Cocksure smirk? Check. Perfect 'TUDE? CHECK!!!


Sassy! What better way to sexually confuse your youth demographic audience than to show them the poster below?


Something's fishy.


NOW we're talking!!


Such 'TUDE! I wish I was the genius who is hired to come up with the tagline for these posters. I want to be able to roll around in millions of dollars too!


"Thanks for ripping off Balto characters, adding some gross Open Season spice and wrapping the whole thing in a gay Furry Fandom tortilla. Oh yea, don't forget the 3D!!!!!!"
- Zach Bellissimo


You're wrong, Bellissimo. This is pure genius and completely original and you know it. There isn't anything else like Alpha and Omega, it's a brand new idea that has the guts to be filled with things that have never been tried in animated features before. And not you or anyone else is going to stop me from being first in line to see it on opening day!!!


Hey, remember my movie poster post from a while back?

Doesn't this just look riveting?


Never in all my years have I see a more glorious example of 'TUDE. So much in fact that BOTH characters on this poster below are serving us with a double-whammy of it. "Hey guys, what if we have our two main characters on our poster making the exact same face?"


I call it brilliance. Perhaps even... 'TUDE overload?? Our old friend Shrek here can't even seem to handle these high 'TUDE levels. I'll cut you a break buddy and stop now.

Keep 'TUDEing, friends!!
