I love your caricature and exaggerated HB doodles!

Speaking of, I just markered a whole bunch of cartoons including one from the Heartaches pilot and some R&S production artwork. Check it out if you feel like it http://bit.ly/bK4Cgr

I love the way you drew Boo Boo's eyes. Super cute and appealing, although I did also like how you drew him in those Yogi Bear cartoons Spumco produced. Early Hanna-Barbera cartoons are most fun to draw.

These are great!

If you ever decide to make a comic on your own: please try to stick to exactly this style.
Everything more elaborate would be just a cheap lie.

I like that fast style. Better make 600 drawings in this style and take the 20 best, than drawing 80 crap prints.

I second Roberto, your eyes are always so appealing.
Where did you work out your eye theories from John? Were they mostly influenced by HB cartoons and books? Ed Benedict's designs always had great eyes, with interestingly shaped pupils, and guys like Mel Crawford and Al White really used these well in the books. Or even Disney in the 40s (Song of the South era)?. I'd love to hear some more of your theories on this subject.

Thanks John.

I think I just found the perfect subject for your next cartoon. I couldn't help seeing your characters in it as I watched...
