Happy Halloween!

I love Halloween!

On a side note, and maybe there's some other cartoonists that can help me out here - I have digitally colored my work in Photoshop in RGB mode. This week I was printing some pieces to send out, and the colors are all outta whack- apparently to print the work needs to be in CMYK. So I've been changing my work to CMYK (this piece was done in CMYK mode) and the colors just ain't the same- not as bright or vibrant....is there any way to preserve my colors and still get a decent print done and show my intended display of my work??? Any help on the matter is greatly appreciated...

Cheeseheads!

After that glorious Packer victory last night, this cartoon was quickly hatched...
I just had to make these aliens purple in color.
ALSO- thanks to loyal follower Robin for winning that small contest for a free signed Alien and Dog print! You rock!!

Not so happy campers...

I was reminiscing about childhood camping trips one day and thinking how so often it seems the weather can turn sour on you. I'll take hail over meteors though.

No one took me up on the lil contest thing in my last post! Maybe next time.     :)

Cat and Dog...

...no aliens or laser beams in this one (had to sneak the UFO in the back though). Me and my girlfriend have been playing a little Yahtzee lately- which spawned this cartoon, naturally.

So...Foofy the cat has actually made an appearance in a previous Alien and Dog cartoon. Which one was it??? Well, how about someone tells me! Drop me an email at ryanjcarpentier@gmail.com  and briefly describe what happened in that past cartoon featuring Foofy- first person who does gets a free signed print of an Alien and Dog cartoon of my choice! 

Free stuff rocks.

Gone Fishin'...

I've wanted Kevin and Geel to go on a fishing trip for some time now. This is what I came up with...Geel likes to utilize his alien technology whenever possible!

Alien and Dog- 1 YEAR OLD!

Alien and Dog has been around for a year now folks. I really love doing the cartoon, even though the last couple of months haven't been extremely productive. I plan to continue and further develop the characters, and perhaps get an ongoing storyline going, rather than standalone pieces every time- maybe a short children's book or comic book type thingy.  I also would like to get some products available for sale- like t-shirts/coffee mugs, or signed prints, etc. We'll see if I can get that ball rollin' anytime soon...
Anyhow, this cartoon is a throwback to the very first Alien and Dog. I wanted to update the original piece, as my techniques and characters have been refined (and they have names now!). Enjoy, and please keep checking out Alien and Dog! 
Here's the original cartoon that started everything:

Anyone remember that flick? That movie use to be a big deal back in the day...
