I would like to introduce...

...the names of Alien and Dog! I've thought long and hard about what I wanted to name my characters (probably too long and too hard, which can be bad!). And I have decided on...Kevin: Kevin is the dog. I wanted a very un-dogish name, if that makes any sense. A more human name adds to the human like qualities that the dog possesses, such as the ability to talk, his intelligence, etc. He may or may not have taken the name Kevin from the artist's favorite basketball player Kevin Garnett??? :)

Geel: pronounced 'Gah-eel'. I had a hard time coming up with the alien's name. I thought about weird alien names or a more common human like name, or a mixture of the two. I also wanted something short and not too complex. Eventually I decided on Geel.

So there you have it finally, the names of my two main characters. I also hope to have more supporting characters come up in cartoons as well. So, while the characters now have names- the cartoon will and always will be called 'Alien and Dog'!


  1. You named your little friends! Nice!
