Common Interests

Just another reason why aliens and dogs get along so well...

I know I just posted a cartoon yesterday, but I don't like sitting on finished work- so here's another one. It was good to do a 'down to earth' cartoon without aliens and spaceships and all that.
Working on this cartoon, I felt that it was a throwback to an earlier Alien and Dog, which had the two of them eating trash. Also, Kevin's dog friend appeared once before in this previous cartoon.

Gangnam Style

There are some things you can't escape in this world. Right now that thing is the South Korean pop song 'Gangnam Style', which become a world wide phenomenon and is still rising in popularity.  I read that the music video has 530 million views on Youtube. Even watching football I was subjected to two football players breaking out into 'Gangnam Style' dance moves.

3 YEARS of Alien and Dog!

I posted the first Alien and Dog cartoon on October 9th 2009. And here I am today (ok, today is the 10th, ridiculously busy yesterday!) continuing the ongoing adventures of my characters. While I've had some creative dry spots at times (see 2011!!), I have seen a lot progress in my drawings and cartooning techniques with hopes to only get stronger. I do this cartoon for myself and my enjoyment, but it pleases me greatly that other people have also enjoyed it. As of right now, I average about 1000 views a month and if you are someone who takes time to read a cartoon of mine- I THANK YOU!! We'll see what happens down the road- I would love to someday self publish a compilation of cartoons or come up with Alien and Dog merchandise, like posters or t-shirts. Stay tuned!

Crash Landing

I am loving working in a three panel format- I think I work better in smaller spaces than in one large one. Why did I wait so long to do this?
Also, this wasn't the first time the two were stranded by the bad guys...

Garbage Visitor

Alien and Dog is normally done in a one panel format but I felt it was time to switch it up a bit. I think I will try to switch between multiple and single panels from now on. Just tryin to keep things interesting!

This cartoon features a Star Wars gag- the eyeball alien coming out of the garbage is suppose to bare a resemblance to the thing that pops out when Skywalker and gang are in the trash compactor, from the original Star Wars film. Here's the scene on youtube if anyone is in the mood for a lil Star Wars. Til next time...
