A Christmas Guide

2014-12-25 13:05:02 by Michael-T-Scott

Christmas is here and can be overwhelming what with all the good tidings, yuletide and unwatned family company. So here's a little something to get you through the season. 

 

 


Killer Whales: Episode 5

2014-10-26 14:11:16 by Michael-T-Scott

One of the things I tell first-dates is that it's OK if I pick them up at their home instead of meeting them at a restaurant or other meeting spot. Why? Because I drive a Prius. They should feel safe because you never hear of a Prius owner that's a murderer.

 

Well, I turned this into the idea for the latest "Killer Whales: Confessions." Hope you enjoy this one as well as the song "Death by Fuel Economy" at the end.

 

 

 


Zombie Zealot

Updated

I've never been a fan of the whole 'zombie' craze and I don't do material that has a short shelf life (e.g. pop culture or parodies... Those are just too easy). So I wanted to see if I could take a subject I think is played out and put an original view on it. I came up with the idea of a religious zombie. Has it been done before? I don't know, I don't keep up with this shit, but I made something with a popular subject and didn't want to lock myself in an oven while I was making this. I hope you enjoy.

 

Here's the kind folks that helped on this (including me):

Gregory Goat: Angry M.D.

2013-10-12 15:47:31 by Michael-T-Scott

Worked with a couple of fun artists on this one. Backgrounds and Gregory's design by Jami Cardwell (http://jami-c.tumblr.com/) and all other character designs by John Varvir (http://rivrav.tumblr.com/). I wanted a background style reminiscent of the old UPA cartoons and think Jami delivered beautifully.

Fun facts:
- Gregory is based on a former co-worker. A peach of a gal with some... Temperament issues.
- "St. Travis Medical" is named after the late Travis the Chimp.
- Gregory yells Al Pacino's great line from Heatin Italian.



Hope you enjoy another conversation with an incarcerated orca.
