Here piggy piggy piggy

Aaahh, a new cartoon! Had a busy weekend- got to see a great NBA playoff basketball game. While I was off doing that, it appears Geel was out finding some pork for himself....

The Almighty Beard


I am also a big supporter of the beard. I grew one a little over a year ago and have had it since. I'm a dude that could shave his face twice a day, but now with a beard I simply have to maintain it- much easier. Plus the lady now prefers me with one- win-win situation( I don't imagine Geel will keep his though). Included is a pic I snapped of my furry face in photo booth on my computer- I think I needed an excuse to play around on it....

Twitter


Well I decided to give Twitter a try. It seems a lot of artists use it to help promote their work. So of course Geel and Kevin are going to give their two cents on the matter.

Please feel free to follow me on twitter! www.twitter.com/ryancarpentier  I plan on posting updates on my artwork, among other stuff....and maybe I'll make a twitter account especially for Alien and Dog...

Also- a cool guy named Guillaume recently created the website www.comicsroulette.com- a fun site to easily view a variety of web comics and cartoons. Alien and Dog can be seen there, as well as some other work of mine, so a big shout out for including my stuff! Please check out the website!

Different strokes for different folks


Thanks for looking!  As I look at it, I think I really could have put a lot more piercings in that dude....

Space battles....

Seems there's always some kind of epic space battle going on.... apparently certain parts of space can be worse then others....

Reality TV

I'm not really a big tv watcher these days. Basically just sports. A channel flipping one night spawned this cartoon.

#%*&#@!!


I really want to get some recurring characters going on Alien and Dog, now that the main two characters have been established. I was looking back at previous work, and seeing who I could bring back as a guest...... somehow I landed on this guy- the alien jerk who they've come across before....

Half off all Easter candy...

I had some Alien and Dog sketches for a Easter themed cartoon but they didn't quite pan out (one involved Geel in a bunny suit that scared children). So I will have to make do with 'after Easter candy sale' themed cartoon. This one focuses on the infamous Peeps- either ya love em or hate em....

Part 2


A little continuation from the last cartoon! And fast food saves the world??? Huh.

I've named the bad guy- General Zlorr. I thought it sounded ominous and powerful, yet simple and alien as well. Hope ya'll enjoy! You can see a few more sketches of General Zlorr on my other blog (I'm trying to post on their more often, with new pieces and sketches)- those can be viewed by clicking HERE.

"Ready weapons!"


I thought Alien and Dog needed a bad guy! I haven't named him yet but he's the little orange alien with his evil robot in this cartoon. Apparently he is a general of some sort, and expect him to pop back up in Alien and Dog (with a name)! I originally came up with the little character in a sketch I recently posted on my other blog called The Cartoon Life- you can see that sketch HERE.

I also put away the dialogue bubbles and placed the text below the cartoon in this one, just to see how it worked. I haven't decided if I like it or not...

Ah....Spring.


Very glad it's feeling very much like spring out there. Love it.

Tidbits-  I had fun drawing the boogers. I don't draw boogers very often.
