***DOWNLOAD COMPLETE***

Finally, a new Alien and Dog. Busy at work followed by a couple of bedridden days with a nasty stomach flu- not cool.

I won't say what inspired this one. Ha ha. But I threw in another Trek reference with the Orion slave girls- Score!

Tidbits- the first Alien and Dog that features just Kevin in the cartoon.
- I'm a big Apple computer fan, and I used a 'banana' logo on the back of the computer as a little homage. (*rimshot*)

Bat Problem


It seems like a lot of people at one point in their life (or at least in the area I live) have had a bat get into their house some way or another. That got me thinking.... what would Geel and Kevin do in this dramatic situation??

Tidbits- well, it appears Geel enjoys guns. One of my first Alien and Dog cartoons had Kevin chewing on Geel's ray gun (of the pistol variety)...and now it appears above that Geel has larger weaponry as well in the household. Hhhmmmm....probably shouldn't be messin' with him.

...(wow, I also draw Geel a lot differently now)...

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away....

I'm more of a Trekkie, but who doesn't like Star Wars.....well, the original trilogy anyways. I've always liked the TIE fighter- so simple, yet menacing! It doesn't look too evil with Geel and Kevin driving it around though....

Happy St. Patty's!

St. Patty's is one of my favorite holidays. I've got a lot of irish in me (I'm a dark haired one, we're the more surly ones!) so I like to go all out- make the corned beef and cabbage, dress up in all green with shamrocks, go out to the taverns, etc etc). It's also the time of year I like to remember my grandfather- he LOVED St. Patty's and played the bagpipes with his kilt on and everything. So it's an important day for me as well. I really enjoyed incorporating the holiday into Alien and Dog- obviously Geel the alien isn't accustomed to pounding beers like so many irishmen seem to be able to do!

Tidbits: -the bow tie on Kevin the dog is a little inside gag for me- My grandpa would always put these big green bow ties that lit up on his two dogs for St. Patty's... :)
-the girl in the bar is modeled after my lovely girlfriend- I think she secretly likes popping up in my cartoons...

KG!!!

I'm a HUGE basketball fan. Kevin Garnett is my fav (although the Celtics are struggling as of late, boo). A KG abduction needed to happen in Alien and Dog.

Fresh Air

Kind of a grim cartoon, but whatyagonnado?

Interesting tidbits: The nuclear power plants on the left are a homage to Homer's workplace on The Simpsons. And the ones on the right resembles Pink Floyd's cover for the album Animals.

5....5 dollar....5 dollar footlooooong...

I enjoy chain establishments once in awhile, but most of their advertisements tend to drive me nuts. They get stuck in your head (and that's what they want!) EVIL.
