Happy New Year!

It's been a lil while- busy holiday for me, hence the short break from 'Alien and Dog', but lots of fun and holiday cheer was had! Hope y'all had a great one too. Now we got the new year coming up, and 'Alien and Dog' would like to wish everyone a very happy and very safe happy new year! Expect lots more 'Alien and Dog' in 2010!

I would also like to give some big time props out to Sid Azin, a great cartoonist and creator of the popular comic strip 'Galaxy Corps', which can be viewed at www.galaxycorps.com. Sid's blog has recently been showcasing artist's work and cartoon strips and I was most flattered to have him find my work and then proceed to post and promote 'Alien and Dog' this week on his site.

It's always great to have other artists compliment your work, but Sid takes it upon himself to post large selections of artists' work on his blog merely for the sake of helping artists out there and to try to get more people to see their work (and hopefully enjoy it!) Thanks Sid. His blog, Comic Creators United, can be viewed at www.comiccreatorsunited.blogspot.com. Please check it out!!!!

Snowalien

I originally just did this image the other night for a new header/title image at the top of the blog for the new season. But I thought ah what the heck- it can stand alone as a cartoon piece as well. It's also fitting considering where I live we just dumped on with over a foot of snow last night!

SHOPPING!!

I definately felt the need to do a cartoon involving shopping for gifts. I also must apologize for the delay in a new cartoon- I usually like to get a new one up at least once a week. I had a good Alien and Dog Thanksgiving themed cartoon drawn up, but just wasn't entirely pleased with the final product....ah well....soooo, now that I have a new cartoon up- maybe I'll go do a little bit of x-mas shopping.... :)

Goofin off

Just thought I'd make a goofy one. I'm not a Lady Gaga fan or anything, quite the opposite, but her name is all over the place and I thought it would funny to have the two singing 'Pokerface'. Hhmmmm...

Dinner Time

I thought it would be funny if both the alien and dog characters got into the garbage :)

Deer!!!!


If you live up in northern Wisconsin like me, odds are you've smacked a deer before!

No dog in this one- he'll be getting some love soon!

The Fam



I decided to throw a little bit of color in this one. Just cuz. I wonder if I should do them all in color, or in grays, or just plain black and white....or maybe some of each, depending on what I feel like???

Anyways, this is a pretty simple cartoon. I always found it humorous when dogs come up to you holding some gross thing they found, acting like it's a treasure or something. I have an old photo of my dog Penny coming up to me with a chipmunk in her mouth just as happy as can be- so this cartoon is a little tribute to that.

The Dating Scene

I thought maybe I would have my alien character go on some dates. He seems to want to assimilate into our culture in all aspects, so why not have him mack on some ladies?

And no, I do not have names yet for my characters! The cartoon is still in its infancy, so I'm not really gonna rush it- I'm waiting for the right names to hit me (although once named, the cartoon will still be called Alien and Dog).

I'm excited for what adventures these characters will go on...I have many many ideas. Seems like I've been focusing on the alien a lil bit more than the dog, so I'm going to get some strong 'dog centered' cartoons done this week.
