Ape Escape.

I recently had the opportunity to write and storyboard 2 two-minute shorts for a new show for the Nicktoons channel, "Ape Escape." It was both challenging and fun. Challenging because it was daunting to be given no parameters to start with and fun because once I decided on themes they kinda wrote themselves. The first short, "Clearin' the Pipes," involved a monkey-run plumbing company "repairing" some clogged pipes, while the second short, "Size Matters," involved the accidental shrinking of a monkey and the ensuing mayhem. Here are a couple snippets of the animatics for your viewing digestion.

The Wombles.

In a small corner of my childhood memory sits the Wombles. I was an enormous fan of this TV show in my grammer school years. I even had a record or two of theirs if memory serves. The strange thing is, like the film "One Got Fat," I don't recall ever meeting anyone who had ever heard of this show before. But man, was I a fanatic. Well, as big a fanatic as a 6 year old could be.

First Bughouse.

The very first "bughouse," drawn in 1989. Although I've seen similar gags in other strips since, this was an idea I came up with that I recall being pretty proud about at the time.

More Bughouse.

Yup, this is pretty much the level of humor you got when you cracked open the Daily Sundial in 1990. Apologies once again for the visuals...

An old comic from the college days, drawn for the CSUN daily newspaper. Poorly drawn, bad composition, but somewhat amusing.

For the record, pulling in a freelance check is far more appreciated with a family of four than it was as a single guy.

Long Night.

For the record, pulling an all-nighter is far more grueling at age 36 than it was at 28.

Okay, so here's the scoop. Yes, I realize I haven't posted in a ridiculously long time, but life has been keeping me pretty busy. My goals have now been amended to suit reality. Hopefully in the next week or two I'll have a "Coming Soon" placard on my website. After thinking things over, and thanks to some advice from a friend, I've decided to draw up a little stockpile of strips before I put them onlilne. This will insure that, once they ARE online, I will be able to publish them on a regular and reliable schedule. One of my concerns has been that if I do not post a strip regularly I will have difficulty building an audience. The pressures of a regular strip combined with a fulltime job are daunting; hopefully this will create some breathing room. So there you have it.
