Are those Donald Bastard shirts back on sale yet? Just curious.

JohnK said...

Yes I think most of the designs have been reordered!

Shawn Dickinson said...

Great cartoon art, with appealing colors, and hilarious stories, with textured character personalities - when will those elements be brought back to cartoons, goddammit??? ...Hopefully they WILL be, if this show gets made! ..It would be a hit!

I love it!

hannah lacey said...

man i hope this gets made!

David Bernal said...

Would LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!

K-T said...

Ah yes, this character is great. I really enjoyed the "first fist" episode doodles. I read them all during school and laughed too hard, everyone else in the computer lab were giving me strange looks.

Anyways, good luck with this concept.

Sandra Rivas said...

I would really love to see your cartoons on television already. They are just absolutely brilliant and creative. Pure eye candy!

dr hoon said...

This looks stunning! Donald Bastard's as funny as it gets. When do we get to see this? Soon I hope.

Elana Pritchard said...

Haha! Hilarious!

I'd definitely watch this. Bobby Bigloaf works as a character because he's based on one of the kinds of people you meet in the real world. In my opinion, the best fictional characters are ones that you can relate to either through yourself or through people you've met who are like them. That's part of why Spongebob is a success: he's the naive optimist who thinks everything is super great. I used to know a real Spongebob in 8th grade.

Love this! Donald ripping his face off made me laugh pretty hard! If this was a show I would watch it everyday and buy all the merchandise!

marcoshark said...

Donald Bastard MUST HAPPEN!!!!!!! Hollywood people (aka producers aka media moguls) must deposit huge dump truck loads of money to you... NOW (please?)

This is awesome. I hope it gets picked up. If not, there's always web cartoons.

lennada said...

Cool Stuff ! Love the artwork !

Chloe Howley said...

Haha! Fantastic. Donald Bastard would fit in with something like the Viz comic characters. Is there a Daisey Bitch?

Mitch Leeuwe said...

Wow cool! Hee you if you need an inker...

Archie said...

I have a drawn of Bobby in my room by you John. Its good like HOHO

HemlockMan said...

Someone needs to do such a cartoon about America's youth who have been spoon-fed superheroes--a diet of hamburgers, comic books, and TV.

Ben said...

Haha, I can relate to Bobby very much. Men in colorful underpants are the shit!

Mister Ron said...

This would be ideal for "Adult Swim" or some other network trying to reach the adults-that-haven't-gown-up demographic. You know, the ones with money to spend on advertisers' stuff.

Archie said...

Hey John, would there be any way to see Bobby on our screens or are the networks still being tight fisted about new ideas.

Would it be possible to make animations funded by the community?

Carmine said...

I'd LOVE to see a show w/ Bobby Bigloaf and the rest of the George Liquor gang. But sadly, who could voice George? Its a crime if these characters don't get a show, but atleast we'll always have "The Goddamn George Liquor Program" and "Pee-Boners", hehehehe...

I'm wondering, sir, what contemporary animated programing you enjoy? Do you like "The Boondocks"? The new "Beavis and Butt-head"? Any anime? Do you like any features of recent years? How about Miyazaki films? Do you like any of the DTV DC or Marvel animated films? Just wondering, thats all. Thanks for the blog, as always :) .

Veronica Beutelwolf said...

I think your cartoons are really crazy, but it inspires me
I wonder if you realize your drawings to annoy the people that are unpleasant or because you really like that scatological things.

well thank you very much again for making me laugh so much

:3

Veronica Beutelwolf said...

Do you have another account where I can check your sketches? or projects

Erik Butter said...

That Bobby Bigloaf seems like a very fun an colourful character. you don'nt need much imagination to see that. He's fun to draw too i tried to draw him a couple of times and its so fun to draw becouse its so well designed. hope we can see some moving images of bobby soon

gerbish said...

the donald bastard t-shirts are sold out! we demand more of those!

Zoran Taylor said...

Apparently, according to Elana via Facebook, commenting here is going to convince execs to greenlight this show. Somehow I doubt it - I'm not so sure they're reading. But count me in as a supporter.

JTW said...

GIVE THIS MAN A CARTOON SHOW! WE'RE DYIN' DOWN HERE!

Brass Tacks Sandwiches said...

Would love to see this.

ArtF said...

I would give my left kneecap for some Donald Bastard cartoons! Let's get these made Godammit!

Anita said...

I love Bobby! I want to see him wearing some bright stretchy underpants he keeps under his bed, hehe.

fandumb said...

Have you ever looked at your own work in other languages?

JohnRyan said...

Yep. This is something that's gonna go BIG.

Donald Bastard is awesome.
Disney won't sue.
It's just a hat.....

Dear John,

MIA ANIMATION CONFERENCE & FESTIVAL will be holding a Pitching Contest as part of its Animation Festival. People from the "industry" are going to be there. Any tips on talking to these people? This will be my first time and I really don't know what to expect. I like the way you set up your pitches, I plan on doing the same! Thanks for the amazing blog.
