Rejected Cartoons


In as much as I think my cartoons and comics are all so awesome (yeah, right!), I actually have some cartoons that never got to see the light of day.  For one reason or another I do not like them anymore after I was finished with them.

Cases in point:

Cartoon # 1


The cartoon above was made during my "experimental frames" phase (remember this cartoon?).  Of course I like the tetris-inspired panels but the story line seemed cliche and just 'blah' after rereading it.


Cartoon # 2 

This cartoon just seemed boring to me.  I like that it has "depth" but I didn't like it much eventually.



Cartoon # 3
This one-panel cartoon is one of the first I have ever made.  Looking at it, it might be quite clear why it is one of the rejects.  It's just a vague cartoon which warrants a "what's the punchline?" retort.

And so I'll explain: my characters, Kat and Mutya do not have legs.  So what the hell are they doing having fun in a trampoline?  Anybody out there who does not need that explanation?

007: Hades and Persephone


Ok, so I depicted Hades to be dumb but I love him in real life!

As a background, Persephone (the Goddess of Spring and Hades' wife) stays in the Underworld for a third of the year but rises from death every spring and stays above during summer and springtime.

Profile Card: Stripes

One of my blog ‘to do’ is to update my character profile cards.  For the last two years, some characters had been added but I never got to create their profile cards.

Without further ado, here is the next wave of cards, starting with Stripes.

092: Talk to Me 4.0

I swear this is the last time I'll be doing a Frozen reference.

This is the first time I did a four part comic.  Since I've been doing some short stories for a while now, I feel that my cartoons have to be a little bit longer than three to six panels.   Not that my short stories are that long...

Anyway, for any who wants to see any of my short stories, please visit my short story gallery at my deviantart account here.

Homemade Comic Strips is Now Up

So I finally succumbed to buying my own domain.  I am now at www.homemadecomicstrips.com so the official title of my blog is “Homemade Comic Strips”.  I believe this is the third time I’ve changed my title but I have an excuse: I feel like I have to make my domain and title consistent.  

I am excited!  Having never personally known anyone who bought their own domain, I did not even know where to start at first!  But a writing workshop and a few searches later, I finally got it.  Other people who have had their own domain for years will probably roll their eyes at this but honestly, I was completely clueless.

But all’s well that ends well.  Everything’s functional now!
