DC COMICS/CARTOON NETWORK BLOCKPARTY COMIC

This was a fun gig. I have done character design on a few MY GYM PARTNER IS A MONKEY episodes before; so this was a really sweet dessert, so to speak. As some may recall, I had done a "FLINTSTONES AND JETSONS" over 10 years ago, I think--and was slated to do a bunch of others, before those books collapsed. However; I actually was still in DC Comic's Freelancer's database, and so was my old page rate...which they were marginally able to increase this many years later! hahaha Oh, but it was so much fun; albeit having to work with such a DENSE story. They really like to cram a lot of story into 8 pages. Ughh. I definately have room to improve (it's a different working style than mine and Joe's on CHARLATAN BALL: Joe sends me loose OUTLINES compared to SCRIPTS), it was a tough format to say the least and had to shed a lot of cobwebs. Eek, look at some of that staging...or non-staging, as it were. Many thanks to Haven Alexander, plus the creators, Tim and Julie over there on Gym Partner for recommending me, along with Nancy and Raynard for providing referance! And thank you Joan!

In hindsight; I wish I would've put cargo pants on the rat.

You're one of those annoying people that make cartooning look easy. These look effortless and exactly like the show. Do you get to spread some of those Kirby inks over them, too?

Super fantastic! Thank the lord for the internets so we get to see these before they're all inked up and colored.

Nice pages! I love the energy. It would have been cool to ink this.

Please do all the Billy & Mandy comics. And I'll extend that invitation to anyone reading as well.
