Maintain Guts

By the way I have an idea on how to share some of these animation clips with you guys

to make some user-generated mashups of silly scenes to music lines

any music you like

all the animation is timed to beats and even the dialogue is rhythmic - it sounds as bouncy backwards as forwards

You could make some fun loops I'll bet

maybe I'll start a youtube channel if anyone's interested in creating some good beats with cartoon accompaniment.

Mr. 23 is coming in tomorrow to take a whack at it.

whattaya think?

Story/Gag Workshop at TAAFI (TORONTO) on Sunday July 8 2012


The folks at the Toronto animation festival came up with a unique workshop idea and asked me to demonstrate the way I write the stories for my cartoons.

As most people who've read the blog know, I don't use scripts; I use the classic cartoon method of writing the details of the story with drawings on storyboards. My writers are all cartoonists and animators. Of course, not all cartoonists have story ability but the ones who do write the best cartoons because they understand what works when you have to draw every frame of the story.

Mike Kerr, one of my funniest story partners will be joining me on stage to conduct a "gag session".

We'll want to involve some of the artists in the audience and have you suggest gags and draw them out on storyboards which we will pin up and review and add to.

Their may be around 80 people in the audience, so I wouldn't be able to personally spend time withe every artist, so I'm trying to figure out a way in advance to maybe see some of your work and select a few funny cartoonists.

I will do another post with some links to storyboards I've done and character designs and descriptions.

In the meantime if you'd like to participate in the event, you might get used to drawing some of my characters. (They don't have to be perfectly on model, but the drawings should feel like the characters and express their personalities).

The characters I am thinking of using are Slab N Ernie, Bobby Bigloaf, maybe George Liquor, Sody Pop and The Heartaches.

Maybe we can get 2 or 3 cartoonist units together and each unit can storyboard a section of a different story.

If you wanna do some sketches and upload them to a blog or web site to show, put an (active) link in the comments to this post. If I think you have story potential, I may select you and give you a heads up on a rough story idea to start sketching up. Or if you already are familiar with my characters, you can suggest your own story or gag idea. - REMEMBER - DO IT WITH DRAWINGS, NOT JUST TEXT.

Sody Fan Art

I was putting together some Sody images to make a couple of model sheets when I came across a bunch of swell fan art of her.
Quite a variety of styles.
I don't know all of the artists so have no credits, but if you see something you drew, make a comment and put a link to your sites if you like.

I included a caricature of Helene in the model sheet above because the drawing is quite similar to the way I draw Sody. It also kind of points out the difference between my generic girl design and a specific actual girl. Hi Mathias and Helene!
