SHEEEEEEEP!!!

One month down already?  Time sure does fly don't it?  Sketch Dailies came up with the theme again this week of "Little Bo Peep." Were her sheep truly stolen?  Let's find out..

Nope!  She's just that darn annoying and they ran off!  Perhaps those uber pink bloomers scared them?  Another fun piece to work on.  Kids and animals are great comic fodder for cartoonists!

And that's all she wrote for January folks!  But guess what?  The CRAZYVERSARY returns next week with Mike And Mindy fan art and guest strips every weekday in February!  A lot of pals wanted to say goodbye to the first couple of web comics, so we're having one last party in their honor, so be sure to stop by for a bit!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

AND THE BAGS PLAYED ON...

Time for another Doodle!  This time Sketch Dailies caught my fancy with the theme of the Lochness Monster!  Couldn't pass up a chance to sketch 'Nessie, so enjoy!

Gotta be honest, not one of my better ones.  I actually changed the feet from the roughs because they just didn't look right.  Still fun though.  Just wondering where 'Nessie found bagpipes that big?

Coming to the end again folks.  Stop buy next week for a new piece of CRAZY art!  Until then, I'll catch y'all later!

DRAGONS AND GEORGE...

Welcome back folks!  Today's drawing was a topic of the Daily Doodle back in April.  The theme was George And The Dragon based off a classic tale from English folklore.  Me being me, I decided to add a different George to the mix…

Probably not the most dead-on George Harrison caricature, but I'm a cartoonist so cut me some slack will ya!  I love the dragon design here and am really excited that I'm getting more opportunities to draw creatures of myth and fantasy!

Well, that's all folks!  Come back next time for some more doodles and such!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

NEW YEAR, NEW FORMAT, NEW FANS!!!

WELCOME TO 2015!!!  And the new format!  No, the CRAZY Stuff ain't going anywhere!  It's just gonna be without a few familiar faces for a while is all!  so let's dive right in and start the new year off right with some new art for all to enjoy!  Or hate!  Totally your call!

First though, a little backstory here.  There are two wonderful groups on Twitter called Daily Doodle and Sketch Dailies.  Each weekday, they give out a topic for all to draw and post back for Twitter users to enjoy!  Well, I've amassed a rather large amount of rough pencil drawings over the past year, and many pals have asked me if I'd ever ink and color them.  Well wonder no more, because this week starts the beginning of the fruits of my labor!  Each week, unless otherwise noted, I'll be presenting a different inked and colored sketch of my various Daily Doodle and Sketch Dailies efforts!  Note that I didn't do every topic that they've posted nor will I be posting the original pencil drawings.  Those can be seen on my Twitter page and frankly, I liked them so much, I simply traced over them on my lightbox with a pen!  Sometimes you just can't beat the original!  With that said, let's get started and I hope you enjoy!

The very first one I got to do was the "Three Little Pigs" theme for the Daily Doodle.  No rhyme or reason here.  Just trying to be my silly self is all.  I do remember drawing the original maybe an hour or so before I had to head up to Anaheim to start setting up for WonderCon.  All I know is, the Big Bad Wolf will likely think twice before messing with any other pigs!

And now for some REALY cool news!  My ever so awesome pal Warren Frantz (Off Season), has introduced Bubble Fox to his students at the school he teaches at!  He took the infamous Dragon's Tale storyline and broke it up into story time for several classes!  All the kids loved the tale but felt bad for the poor dragon as he had no name.  Well, Warren and me cooked up a plan and held a Name The Dragon Contest for the kids!  I was stunned at the amount of entries I got (Over 100!), all of them amazing!  But alas, there could only be one winner, and I'm proud to say a 3rd grader by the name of Kaleb took top honors with the powerful name of Malfor!

(Here's Kaleb with his prize pack and Gully himself, Warren Frantz, celebrating Kaleb's prize pack as my video image rambles on in the background!)

I gotta tell ya, I've never been prouder as a cartoonist!  To have all those kids love the comic really filled my heart with joy and could not have come at a better time for me!  I was especially pleased that the kids were all tickled over Malfor being a blue dragon! (Bubble's a black and white toon, so the imagination's gotta be used heavily there!)  And then the news got even better when Warren sent me these from the kids:  

FAN ART!!!

Bubble Fox in the Hot Tub yelling "Hot Bubbles!"  This was from one of Warren's 1st Graders! 

This piece of M&M fan art is from a little Girl named Kaylee!  See? Those two will never truly be gone from here! 

Kaylee also did this homage to a sketch card one of the runners-up received in the contest!  I tell ya, Warren's got some very talented kids at his school!

I'm still beaming from all this fanfare!  Thank you so much Warren for organizing this and for being such a great friend!  And thank you kids for being such good students!  Bubble loves all of you and has LOTS more in store in the coming year!

Well, that's all for this week folks.  We'll be back next time with a new doodle for your art appetite!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

WHAT'S OLD IS NEW IN 2015...

HAPPY NEW YEAR MY CRAZIES!!!  And with this, the torch has been passed.  Mike And Mindy can head to the beach while Peppertown picks up the mantle of the CRAZYVERSE.  So what happens now, you ask?  Well, here's how it's gonna go:

This blog is staying put!  Although I do like Blogger, for comics, it's not as practical as I'd like.  However, it's perfect for regular art posts and am happy to say this will be the home of some of my many doodles and sketches I've been doing for the Daily Doodle and Sketch Dalies on Twitter.  Many of these are just pencil sketches that will FINALLY be inked and colored and for the masses to enjoy!  This blog will also be the exclusive home of the CRAZY CARTOON EXPERIMENT among other art jams and collabs!

Peppertown will be posting Fridays on ComicFury along with Bubble Fox retaining its Tuesday/Thursday schedule.  I've been very happy with the service on CF and see no need to switch gears.

If you follow me on Patreon, you will get early access to both Bubble Fox AND Peppertown as a reward for helping me pay my bills.  Of course, for a little bit more, you can get cool things like sketch cards and higher ticket prizes too!

And that's how it's gonna be.  Hopefully that'll work for everyone and the transitions will all be smooth.  And that's all for this week and this year!  I want to wish you all a happy and safe New Year's Eve and a happy, healthy and prosperous 2015!  Y'all have been amazing and the best is yet to come!  Take care, God bless and I'll catch y'all in 2015!

MERRY CHRISTMAS MY CRAZIES!!!  Not much of a post today, but I had to give y'all a little present!  As you can see, Mike and Mindy have been enjoying their retirement so far, but that devious Bubble Fox had to go and show them up.  Bigger isn't all always better, but when it comes to stocking stuffers, that wily fox takes the fruit cake… And promptly chips a fang!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Kwanzaa and straight up Happy Holidays to all you amazing folks.  May your Christmas day be wonderful and safe and full of love!  Take care and I'll catch y'all later!

"BOSTON" RICH GOES CRAZY!!!

Welcome to Guest Week folks!  The final one ever here at the CRAZYVERSE!  And boy did I luck out this time!  Rich Clabaugh of the great Graveyard Gang comic did this awesome strip giving Mike and Mindy one last hurrah before heading to the beach for retirement!  Enjoy…


Uh oh Krampus, you better watch yourself!  Mike and Mindy aren't your everyday kids and can definitely hold their own!  They certainly are much better mannered in Rich's cartoon universe than mine!  So polite!

Rich Clabaugh is the brilliant mind and hand behind the awesome web comic series Graveyard Gang, an all ages romp about a group of kids always getting into trouble with the supernatural spooks of their hometown of Ghostport, Massachusetts.  With a name like that, how can that town NOT expect any kind of spectral activity?  Rich is also a very good friend and a longtime supporter of the CRAZYVERSE, just a genuinely good guy all around.  His comic is all ages for good reason: ANY one of ANY age can read and enjoy it.  Rich is quickly getting up their with artists like Jimmy Gownley and Stan Sakai as being tops in the field so if you haven't read it yet, click the links!  You'll love what you see!

Well, that's all for this week folks.  Thanks again to Rich Clabaugh for sending Mike And Mindy off on a high note!  Next week's a light post featuring a new Christmas Splash Page from the CRAZYVERSE faithful!  Until then, take care and remember to think of others this Christmas.  Donate now while there's still time!
