Elwy and the Tree Weasels

As a kid I was a big fan of The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse. My mom, also a cartoon fan, hated it. She said it didn’t compare to the original TerryToon versions.
When the episode below first aired it blew my mind. I don’t remember how old I was, but I remember I was in grade school. I was upset when I heard the series was canceled. It wasn’t until years later, when I saw a promo spot for Ren and Stimpy that I felt as excited about a cartoon. I kind of really haven’t been that excited since.
Anyway, this is one of the many cartoons that made me want to become a cartoonist, and I thought I’d share.

enjoy,

There’s so much I could say about this dude, but I’ll keep it simple:
I’m still convinced Corey Barba is secretly my older brother.

Check out his blog and experience his genius.

IHP 103- NYC, Mad, and other goodness

RANTLERS! BILLIONS OF UM! WHOAH!!!!!
New York was the shit. Thanks to Actual Fact for putting us up in his
crib. Thanks to Pickel for his massive hustle to put us on at the
Showroom. Peace to the Formula Crew, Sket, Jim Koch, The Mimobot
gang, Brook, Jen, Jim, Sara Martin, Static, Joe M, Whitney and Kirby,
and all you knuckleheads I kicked it with. NYC is lovely, and I’ll have to
go back.
Why do I suck at taking photos? I got this fucking digital camera (which
I bought mostly for phot ref and snapping pics of textures)
Anyway, here’s what I took of my trip…

add to the mural…

That was a helluva night.

The day before I left for NY, I was called by Mad mag to provide the art
for a two page article called ” Mad’s Teacher Translation Guide”. It’s
all done (was up past 5:30 am last night finishing it) and I’ll post the
issue and date as soon as I know.
Since I haven’t posted much art lately, I figured I’d post sketches from
the last Mad article I did, from the Feb. 07 issue.








If you want to see the final art, cop that ish from your local bookstore…
