The last time you worked with them it was awesome.

David Germain said...

OOOOH!!! Is Tenacious D coming out with another album? Or are you just making a video for a song from their previous album?

Oh, and what are their personalities? Kidding ;)

Ted said...

The best thing about Fuck Her Gently (and the drawings were great) was not having to look at Tenacious D's gorgonic countenances... Anything that keeps their actual faces from being reproduced is a good idea...

christopher said...

I like them a lot! I think it will be as awesome as these drawings!

christopher said...

The project that is...

Craig D said...

Louie Anderson! ALL RIGHT!!!

Oh, it's not Louie...

More Lesson 2

Brian Romero said...

I hope you guys do more work with Tenacious D. I'd watch or buy whatever project you do with them. I saw them open for Weezer, they were fuckin' hilarious!

Taco Jack said...

'Fuck Her Gently' might be one of the all-time greatest videos. You should do a weekly animated series with Kage and Jables.

benj said...

AWESOME!!!

JoelJarrard said...

hilarious. they're a perfect fit for collaborating with you guys.

John said...

Boy that Ted guy (third comment) sure is a dick.

Anyway, it would be great to see some more collaborations between you and the D.

Dhaynes said...

Tenacious D's first CD is one of the few CDs I know all the words to. They kick so much ass it hurts. I also saw them open for Weezer, but TD blew my ass off so hard I don't even remember Weezer!

kp said...

I LOVE these guys! Awesome caricatures of Jack especially. Very representative of his quirky, someewhat childlike mischeviousness. You even captured "The Eyebrow" just right! I would really like to see something more come of this!

Ryan G. said...

John are you doing something involved with the Tenacious D movie or new video.. Jack B looks great!

Eric C. said...

I like the part where the devil's skin melted.

Hey John,

When is Bobby's Girl and The George Liquor Movie coming out?

And have you ever seen Ed Edd N Eddy?

_Eric

antikewl said...

If it's anything like the stuff you did for Fuck Her Gently, count me in! :)

Vanoni! said...

Those are fun as hell.
I love 'em.

You can really see you getting into them toward the end there.

Alex said...

Awesome. Although I'm not really a fan of the FHG video I cannot deny the lovliocity of these drawlings.

Eddie Fitzgerald said...

Nice stuff! Jack Black is a hard guy to draw but you nailed him. It was fun to see the caricature evolve from the more realistic drawing at the top to the stylized ones below!

-Eddie

Peter said...

sweet Tenacious D! I've got my ear out in the event of a new album. Rock on John.

RicHARD Ryan Anderson said...

Spumco with ROCKET SAUCE!

Toren Q Atkinson said...

How much do I like them? As much as is possible. Looking forward to the film.

max ward said...

Tenacious D could give you more publicity than they did the last time you did a video for them. Jack Black is probably a millionaire, why doesn't he invest in your DVD projects?

Shawn said...

I like those fellows okay.

I like those drawings even better!

Jeremy said...

JB and KG rock

lyris said...

The last one is great! A hint of creepy Ren in there.

Sam said...

hey John, before Billy West took over Ren, did you voice him in tv commercials (like for cereal or toys)?

ps. these drawings of JB and KG are awesome!

Spizzerinktum said...

These drawings are fantastic. I just love them. In drawing #4, Kyle looks exactly like the post-rescue colossal baby from "Firedogs". Heh. Funny how certain frames just sear into your brainpan and so often perform "separated at births" with later images.

Maybe this time around they could record a great song that can actually be played somewhere, with a video that could be looked upon by all? Nah.

Anonymous said...

Hot. I can't wait for the Tenacious D movie. Animated title sequence mayhaps?

jo krause said...

tenacious d ! my second love after spumco...the combination beats it all.. do it do it do it pa-leeze

theKirkness said...

i hear you on the louie anderson thing. its the teeth on jack. they throw me off a bit. but other than that its good.

have his teeth shrunk since you drew them last?

bardhol said...

These are sweet lookin all right. Did I hear that Jack Black's wife is an animator??

Kali Fontecchio said...

Sweet job of totally capturing that crazy look in Jack Black's eyes- scary!

And that Kyle guy- his cheeks and head look like balloons- they'd be fun to pop! Maybe his head will float away...

Patches said...

like these fellas??? i love these fellas!! make us proud doc.

YESSSSSSSSSS THE D ROCKSSS SO HARDDDDDDDDDDD !!!!! AND U jK U ROCK AS WELL THE FUCKHER GENTLY VIDEO RULES ASS!!!!

Samuel K said...

This is fairly exciting.

Anonymous said...

Push Jack Black further. He doesn't seem extreme or DANGEROUS!)enough tho' the drawings themselves are nicely done.

Dan said...

Great drawings. Tenacious D are hilarious. I'm also looking forward to seeing your Wierd Al collaboration you mentioned. How's that going, and when could I expect to see it?

Tenacious D is alright. In art school, my buddies played that Fuck Her Gently song so much that I got sick of it. Then I watched your music video and found a whole new reason to like that song. I keep the song mute while I watch your animation. I wish I could see that video again. John, do you mind posting the music video of Fuck Her Gently on your blog?

said...

in the words of the Immortal Patrick Stewart:

MAKE IT SO

bodidarma said...

there cool

Art F. said...

Very awesome!

fabiopower said...

Yeah!, that they eat maize...! the third is so good!

Drew said...

Hey John! Did You know that Jack Black had his baby today!

Sketch said...

Great drawings! I keep forgetting you two know each other. Awesome work!

The Butcher said...

Aside from some of the movies Jack Black has been cast in, I think he's golden and Kyle Gas is very talented as well. I'd like to see their humor and music to your cartoons again. I say go for it!

What do you think of the stuff Jack Black has done on Mr Show? Have you seen any of it? It's damn funny. An animated "Joke the Musical" would rock my socks.

This is not The Greatest Song in the World, no.
This is just a tribute.
Couldn't remember The Greatest Song in the World, no, no.
This is a tribute, oh, to The Greatest Song in the World,
All right! It was The Greatest Song in the World,
All right! It was the best muthafuckin' song the greatest song in the world.

j9 said...

yay!! everything about that is good. yayaayayay!!!

max ward said...

Get Jack Black the millionaire to invest in your DVD projects!

I must see Jimmy the Idiot Boy cartoons!!

max ward said...

Whoever agrees Jack Black should invest what is presumably chump change to him in one of John K's DVD projects say "Aye!"

max ward said...

Aye!

Ollie said...

Hey John, i like them alot! Are you gonna be working on The Pick of Destiny or a new music video from the soundtrack?

Whatever it is i'm really looking forward to it. I love Tenacious D, they're hilarious. And they Rock!

-Ollie

Trevour said...

I'm seeing a GREAT build of exaggeration for JB... are you gonna get crazier with the KG as well?

It's funny seeing all the 'D' speak here.

Dave_the_Turnip said...

Those charactures are amazing. I love how you start with a well drawn likeness and then you start exaggerating and pulling out features.

Trevour said...

Actually after I just looked through the drawings again, I take back my last comment.

When you think of Jack Black, you think of his intense delivery and overall nature. But Kyle, no matter what situation The D are in, seems to always have that same doughy expression. You've got both caricatures down perfect!

Jorge Garrido said...

Jack Black, bitches!

Jorge Garrido said...

hmmm... as far as I know John dind't work on that Spumco Tenacious D video...

Alicia said...

I think I heard today (could be wrong) that Jack Black just had a baby. I'd love to see your interpretation of that!

Mortadelo and Filemon said...

Cum into somebody's earlobe, then come to our website...bitches www.bozcomix.blogspot.com

Jennifer said...

Wow John, that's fantastic news! Are you at liberty to share the details of the project?

Anonymous said...

John says he dislikes Barbara Streisand, yet his buddy JB starred in "Envy" alongside Ben Stiller, who starred in "Meet The Fockers" alonside- BIG SURPRISE- ol' Streisand!

Anonymous said...

Tenacious D and Spumco are really a great combination. Especially Jack Black and his amazing face antics. He's like a living Spumco cartoon!

bardhol said...

oh really? thanks.

Julián höek said...

jack b is a great comediant, perfect for put his voice in an animated series or featuro done by spumco! i hope that'll happen some day!!
great caricatures! i love the last one

Anonymous said...

I heart KG and Jables.

FHG was a great video, can't wait to see what you guys do next.

Anonymous said...

Hey john have you argued politic with JB yet?

geedeck said...

I think it'll rock. I think their character and performance manners mesh very well with your artistic style in that it's very exuberant and exxagurated.

Josh "Just What the Doctor Ordered" Heisie said...

Those are awesome...but does Tenacious D really count as "beautiful people"? I'd say they fit more into the category of "overweight middle aged men".

Well spotted, Josh! If you review John's previous posts about "beautiful people", eagle eyed readers might notice a trend.

Perhaps a sense of irony is just what the doctor ordered?

cableclair said...

I loooooove them!!!!

Gavin Freitas said...

Good drawings John. I forgot you animated a cartoon for Tenacious D. "whats your favorite dish"...

Anonymous said...

T e n a c i o u s D Rocks! I loved the f#ck you gently music video you made for them.

Your artistic syle complements their choices.

And i especially love the hot devil girl you created.

Can you teach us to draw such beauty?

akira said...

i'd love to hear JB and or KG's feedback on their own caricatures... please?! are there any features that they asked to tone down or enhance??

awesome draftsmanship and exaggeration as always!

andy b. said...

fuck her gently came out great

Ted said...

"hmmm... as far as I know John dind't work on that Spumco Tenacious D video... "

From Suicide Girls interview:
"RE: Was that you who directed the Tenacious D video Fuck Her Gently?
JK: No that was Gabe Swarr. I produced it and it was done at my LA studio. "

Colin said...

I love the D. They translate so well to your animation style, too!

Jason White said...

spot on

Wo Bist Du said...

And these are beautiful people?

:)

Ryan Kramer said...

hilarious! they were good on the Tenacious D video for fuck her gently. I know spumco did that.

Jason Davis said...

John K and the fellas from Tenacious D is a beautiful combination. Comedy and art at it's best!
