The Big Guns

Finally, a new cartoon. For some reason I began thinking about how NERF toys were popular back when I was a kid. They are still around, but not sure if the kiddies are still crazy about them. As a young kid into sci fi, I always thought NERF guns with foam balls and darts looked like big alien weaponry and I enjoyed incorporating those thoughts into this cartoon.

The Playoffs

Well it's been a good week since a new cartoon, been a little busy, and been watching a little too much basketball. In fact, I will be attending the Spurs/Thunder game in San Antonio tonight. I should get a new cartoon up tomorrow, but for today I will post some past basketball related Alien and Dog cartoons in the spirit of the NBA playoffs.

Back in the day, Geel got to know KG a little bit...

....Alien and Dog had a little say in Lebron's big decision on where to play...

....and were surprised by a certain team's exit last year.
Thanks for lookin', see ya soon.

Nerd Swag

Seems like big black rimmed glasses and nerdy attire is starting to become popular- or 'nerd swag' as I've heard it referred to. I've noticed this recently among celebrities and sports stars mostly. Why couldn't this have been the rage 10 years ago? I would have been the man.

Deep-Fried

So how did this cartoon come about? Well, a buddy bought me a deep fryer for my birthday awhile back and I finally decided to get it going recently.  Now I've been dunking anything and everything in there. Probably not the best for me, but it sure tastes good.

Wanted: New Earth

I was reading an article and came across a statement that definitely hit me a bit- 'We are living as if we have an extra planet at our disposal'. It's so true, and pretty sad really. Although probably the last thing humans need is another planet to ruin....ok, I promise my next cartoon will be more lighthearted!

Happy Mother's Day!

Just want to give a shout out to all the great mothers out there! And I've got the best mom ever, she is a wonderful lady! Thanks for all you do!
As for these alien flowers, it's already been established that the plant-life on Geel's homeworld is right out of Little Shop of Horrors. Also, this is the first time we've seen Geel's mother- although his grandmother has shown up before.

Must See The Avengers!

I haven't seen The Avengers yet, but I will probably go tomorrow sometime. I heard it's awesome, plus its already made like a billion dollars at the box office. Since I'm a big movie buff, I wanted to throw out a mention of The Avengers in a cartoon. The weird blue thing in the background is the alien visitor's spaceship- I had a lot more of it drawn but had to crop it off when trying to make my composition better...anyways, til next time...

Sun Tan

I kept hearing stuff on the news about a lady supposedly letting her 5 yr old in a tanning booth, and while this cartoon isn't about that particular story, it got me thinking about doing a cartoon about tanning booths somehow. Also enjoyed creating the image of the sun- always fun messing around in Photoshop. After finishing the cartoon, I realized a past Alien and Dog cartoon basically contradicts Geel's desire to catch a tan in this one.

May the Fourth be with you!

Since Alien and Dog is a pretty nerdy cartoon, I feel the need to exclaim: Happy Star Wars Day!!!
In celebration, here are a few links to some past Alien and Dog cartoons with Star Wars references: HERE, HERE, and HERE.

Courtesy Check

You can probably guess how I got inspired for this cartoon. Been a busy week of work, but a stretch of days off coming up usually means a bunch of new cartoons so keep yo eyes open for more Alien and Dog!
