Charmy’s Army – December 2, 2018

TURTLE IS BACK!

I love writing strips for Turtle. He is madly in love with Frenchy, even though he knows he has no chance with her. Turtle will never give up. He is like me. I am in love with the idea of becoming a real cartoonist one day and I refuse to give up chasing my dream.

If I ever get an animated series out of Charmy’s Army, I would be so excited with the possibilities of building up these bit characters like Turtle, Blue and Sarge. The chances of getting a television deal is less likely than my chances of getting syndicated. Like Turtle and his determination, I will never stop working at my dream… so who knows what may happen!

RIP STEVEN HILLENBURG

We lost one of the most amazing creators of our age last week. Steven Hillenburg succumbed to ALS at the young age of 57. So sad. Steven was the creator of Spongebob Squarepants, inspiring cartoonists around the world to be as silly as possible. The world of Bikini Bottom is a work of pure genius.

I can only dream of Charmy’s Army becoming as huge as Spongebob Squarepants.

Rest in peace Steven. Thanks for all the memories of me and my sons laughing in hysterics at the most amazing television show ever to air. You will be truly missed.

INKtober 2018 in Review

Oh, I hate changes. WordPress has completely changed the back end of WordPress’s website so I am testing the new look out. Hopefully this new update to WordPress will not crash and burn my site! I am already seeing a few features missing which I use. I always use a full justification on my paragraphs and I do not see that option.

Today, I am going to test out this media block. Here are my INKtober drawings from last month. Check them out! They came out amazing.

INKtober was so much fun. I ran out of gas at the end and missed two cards. I had a very bad show in San Antonio and it wiped me out emotionally. I just could not get motivated to do those last two cards after working so incredibly hard all month prepping for Alamo City Comic Con. I still had a blast seeing my friends and hanging out on the Riverwalk with my wife. 

Looking back on this impressive set of cards though, I would say October was an amazing month. Truth is, every other show is a bad show. I cannot blame anything but bad luck on the epic fail in San Antonio. I will try Alamo City Comic Con again in a few years. I love that city too much to stay away too long. I did sell a record 5 sketch cards that weekend. Unfortunately, I did not sell much more than that….. 😦

This post was a good test of the new WordPress platform. I really do not like it though. Hopefully I will get acclimated to the new look soon!
