Transmitting new song from Mars...

My last Curiosity/Mars themed cartoon has been getting lots of views, so I figured I would do another. A couple of days ago, from the Black Eyed Peas had a new song broadcast from the rover on Mars. I gave the song, titled 'Reach for the Stars,' a listen- this cartoon was my reaction...

On a more serious note, I am glad people are so interested in Curiosity on Mars and there is excitement about our space program again. It's such a positive thing among all the bad stuff that goes on these days...hopefully it continues!

One more thing- I think this is the first Alien and Dog cartoon to not feature the two main characters. The 'alien pet' in this one was seen in a previous cartoon.

The NEW iPhone

Technology sure is crazy these days. Advancements are made so fast that we barely have time to digest the most recent gadget before a new version of it comes. And I'm also not exactly sure why an alien who has time traveling technology would necessarily be interested in a smartphone.

Roller Coaster Ride

This possibly could be my weirdest cartoon I've done. I'm sure that's debatable. But I'm heading off to an amusement park today and had my mind on roller coasters -in fact, I think I remember being on a ride called the 'Black Hole' somewhere before...

Kevin the dog's line in this cartoon is actually lifted from the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. While in different context, I thought a ride through a black hole was an appropriate fit for the quote.

Also, a previous Alien and Dog cartoon touched on the dangers of entering a black hole...

Til next time!

Shark Week

Shark Week is of course the week devoted on the Discover Channel to all things sharks. I read it is their 25th anniversary of the event and I thought to myself- I think I can draw a cool looking shark (and yes I was pleased with how my cartoon shark turned out).

Visit to Mars

I have loved seeing the images of Mars coming from the Curiosity land rover. Total awesomeness. I felt like doing a cartoon about it, and this is what I came up with! Foofy the cat appeared in a couple of previous Alien and Dog cartoons, which can be seen HERE and HERE. I don't think Foofy will be appearing again.

The Olympics

It has been a month since the last Alien and Dog. I took a little vacation, among other things, and I subsequently feel more energized creatively. There should be more consistent posting for the time being. Definitely a lot of crazy stuff in the news these days, so ideas should be easy to come by! This is my Olympics cartoon...
