More Recent Art, Frustration with Kamden Spies, and a NEW Film!

Here's art from the last two weeks, a lot more recent and better. These were drawn in an old schedule book I never used that I had in high school. 




Swing it!" is a Curly Howard line. 

As you can see, my art has advanced significantly lately.

I am slightly mad at Kamden Spies. I went on his blog, Termite Terrace Headlines, and requested in a comment that he include my site on his blogroll, not only did he not do it, but I saw this:

Rude! If somebody comes begging me to put their blog on here, I'd do it! If it seems like I'm being self-absorbed, I've gotta advertise somewhere.

No essays, but my first written-commentary: The Little Whirlwind! Check out the Commentaries tab and click "Disney"!

Newest reviews are for the short films Sunbeam and The Prince and the Pauper, and the books Chuck Amuck and Before Mickey

I now have a new short film in the works: "You Never Can Tell", based on Chuck Berry's classic song from his 1964 album St. Louie to Liverpool. He died in 2017, and this is dedicated to his memory. Check out the "My Animated Films" tab for information.

Funny anecdote: today I thought I was receiving The Fleischer Story in the mail from Ebay but instead got some book on Pre-Code Hollywood! What the heck?! As a bibliophile, this is a first. And Saturday I received the history book Attack and Die with no dustjacket! This must be because it's Christmastime, right?

    Hey, this is Kamden here (anonymous cause it’s not letting me comment). I usually have only been adding blogs to my role for blogs I’m familiar with am friends with the blogger. I’ve got too many blogs on the role at this point. Nothing personal. I’m just not familiar with yours. As for the deletion, I’m sure you’re familiar with all the spam these things get. I practically delete the comments with an unfamiliar name automatically after the post have been up for a certain amount of time. Links are spam 70% of the time.

    1. *Blushes with embarrassment* Sorry I rash judged. No hard feelings, I hope.

      I saw the processing comment just now for my blog, You’re good. Don’t worry about it.—Kamden

  2. Anyone who has a blog gets to decide what gets posted on it and what doesn't. If you, for example, see fit to delete a lengthy comment that someone took the trouble to write and post on your blog, you have every right to do so, no questions asked and no hard feelings. The same goes for Kamden. We're all here for the cartoons above all.

    1. Hey Paul, I saw you mentioned Plan 9 on CR. That is the greatest movie ever! "You see, YOU SEE?! STUPID! STUPID!!" Wise words.

      How do you feel about it?

    2. I love it. I first saw Plan 9 in college, and it was the funniest thing I'd ever seen. I've watched it dozens of times, and it still makes me laugh. That bit where Eros explains how Solaronite works cracks me up every time.

      And, just to bring the subject back to cartoons: Joanna Lee, who played the alien Tanna, later became the first successful female television writer (who wasn't part of a writing team with a man). She did a lot of work for Hanna-Barbera in the 1960s, including over 20 episodes of The Flintstones. They're great, on a par with Warren Foster's work. Also, the leader of the aliens was played by drag queen John C. "Bunny" Breckinridge, great-grandson and namesake of the Civil War general, in his only film role.

    3. I had no idea. Nor that the leader was related to General Breckinridge (I'm a big CW buff).

  3. Hope you won't mind me suggesting that you get yourself a blank sketch pad, as I find the lined paper you're using a major obstacle in viewing your artwork properly. The lines are far too distracting and don't do your cartoons any favours.

    1. Maybe so. I find it much easier to draw on this type of paper, and save the nice stuff for...nice stuff. But if you say so, possibly...

    2. Your stuff would be much clearer for it and look a whole lot better without the lines. Trust me.
