Hang Kali On Your Wall

Hey folks, Happy New Year! Thanks for a great year of comments and fighting! No seriously, it's great to know there are so many cartoon fans who are as passionate as me about the stuff and willing to shed blood for their beliefs.

Hey I bet some of you out there would love to have some cartoony decorations on your walls. Kali is constantly turning out sketches, paintings and color marker renderings and I so I said to her, "Why don't you see if anybody would want to buy some of this stuff?".

Kali, like all students is always struggling to get that exorbitant tuition paid and then eat on top of that. I'm sure lots of you out there know all about it!





Her current obsession seems to be the original TV Chipmunks from 1960. We've been watching those and they are really fun, way different than the creepy incarnations of the last 30 years, more cartoony, no cheesy pathos or moral lessons.













She has these great pages of inked doodles and I'm trying to get her to scan some and show 'em to you. I bet you could snap one up for a good bargain. I'll try to post some later today.

She can do custom stuff for you too, like caricatures of you and your buds.

Find her ass here:

Thanks again for a fun and educational year. Let's explore lots more cartoons this year.

Nice pics. I especially like the child washing dishes - I adore the old storybook style.

Lee said...

Happy New Year John! Looking forward to what you have to offer in 2008!

(It's great to see you helping out talented folks, such as Kali and Katie!)

Happy New Year, Mr. K. Your blog is very informative, and it has helped me realize what I really want to see in commercial animation.

I envy Kali's skills tremendously. I envy them so much, its not funny. How does Kali motivate herself?

Roberto said...

Happy New Year. The prospect of exploring more cartoons sounds fun.

"Next: Various theories of animated "takes"."
It sounds like Avery is going to be mentioned in one of those theories.

Laura said...

I love Kali's work. She's so great, 'cause you can tell she really loves what she's doing.


I'll be contacting in the future for some awesome doodles!

Can't wait to read about the new theories.

Happy New Year, John. I hope you have a good year. -sighs- Ren and Stimpy reruns on Nicktoons network. Tomorrow is gonna be a John Episode. Hopefully, I can see it.

I don't think we even need to ask your thoughts on the new Chipmunks flick, do we? Also, if you've seen Disney's National Treasure, what did you think of that new Goofy short, John?

Thanks for an incredible year of nonstop cartoon information and thrills. And capping it off with actually taking time to meet me and my no-account pal for hotdogs! You made my year. Thanks John!

I'm still trying my darndest to become a cartoon genius, I promise!

Your biggest fan
Josh Heisie

Happy New Year, John! This place has been such an amazing source of inspiration. Thanks for all your influential and thought provoking posts! Your hard work is a benefit to everyone who is smart enough to stop by.

happy new year john!

thanks for your support this year!

hey, i just saw the national treasure sequel and with it, there was a BRAND NEW goofy cartoon that disney made; they ACTUALLY used traditional animation ( ALL the way through it ). josh apparently saw it too.

it was actually funny and the colours weren't too garrish. the only bit of presumtious vanity? on goofy's side table there's two pictures: one of walt, and right next to it, one of john lasseter's swollen face.

like saying that he's even on walt's level of greatness. criminey.

anyway, kali should sell her art like katie did on eBay. i'd definitely buy up some crap.

happy new year and thanks for the previous one, john. i learned a lot this year cuz of you.

- trevor.

Happy New Year, and chuckles over that painting with John Rockfalustone and Kalisaurus Dino.

Ben Forbes said...

Her paintings are amazing. I wish I could paint as well as she does. Awesome marker renderings too. Any chance that we might see some tips for doing marker renderings like Kali and Marlo?

Happy new year!

Nice job, Kali!
(BTW, I just found out that the complete ALVIN SHOW - 26 half hours, plus Soaky commercials - is coming out on DVD in May of 2008. You heard it here first!)
