The Washington Post Responds!

November 20, 2008

Unfortunately the latest Family Pants’ batch of comic strips have been turned down again!  But each rejection has been kinder.  It almost seems I was rejected because of faulty timing rather than smelling up the in-box of some editor.

Mrs. Lago of the Washington Post Writer’s Syndicate even gave me a short critique to be less illustrative as tiny comics are unforgiving to detail.  I guess I got too carried away with the detail.

Two left to go, King Features and United Media!

Family Pants’ The Lamaze Daze

November 15, 2008

Here’s the next Family Pants cartoon! My Dad gets motion sickness being a passenger in cars and I’ve made fun of his strange breathing here. And the dialog is a word for word argument about the difference between “dizzy” and “nauseated”!

My next blog entry will be the exact break down of the process of making a Family Pants cartoon… particularly this one!

I’ve also posted this cartoon on MyToons.com. At first I really didn’t give these guys a chance.  I thought they were just another video posting site, so I sent in my cartoons at a low resolution.  But this cartoon, I made in HD format for really no reason other than experimenting what it would look like on MyToons.  Unfortunately I can’t embed MyToons in WordPress, so I have a JPEG which links to MyToons.  I’m really very impressed.  And, coincidentally I’ve noticed I’ve gotten more hits on MyToons than YouTube.  (YouTube however gave me more people actually emailing me to make more cartoons.)  Depending on how it’ll affect my hit records, I’m probably going to re-export everything for MyToons and repost it in higher resolution.  From now on MyToons is not just another video posting site…

[Update… the Link below is broken!  I’m not sure where MyToons has gone.  But just to let you know… it’s not you.]
