I don't think I can draw like that. Funny how God gives Gifts and gets mocked for it.

In 1st Grade there was a girl who had to sit in the Corner. She was spazzy. We all had to have a Dept Store Catalog for projects and she had a BIG JC Penny. I had an assigned seat on the edge of the classroom group and was probably closest to her. She tore out all the Bra pictures, wadded them up and threw them at me. My desk was full of wadded up Bra photos. When she ran out of JC Penny Catalog pictures she started drawing boobs, wadded them up and threw them at me. She was laughing hysterically in the corner. We were talked to one time by 2 Teachers and I had to stay in during Recess. I saw this girl maybe a year ago and she started giggling. I thought I heard her say, "Oh God."

Anyways, that's the maturity level of the Sody Pop "Character." She belongs at Porn Conventions more than CTN? Maybe she is a big blow up doll for "Men" with 2 holes? 3 Holes being more expensive. Maybe John K made a Cartoon demonstrating how Idiot Boy uses her.

What was it called? "F*** her Gently?" The John K Cartoon with the Dungeon Girl. It reminds me of the "Man" in Ohio caught with the 3 girls trapped in his House/Basement whatever for 10 yrs.

I find that if I say something to a Man his Wife might pipe up and say,"that did bother me." Never having said it to him before. What kind of Marriage is that? I might say something to a Guy my age and he'll say,"his Wife had the same concerns." She eventually leaves.

TSHIRT!!!

Holy mackarel! That's my new favorite drawing from you John. This is what that awful 1970s cartoon Grape Ape would look like if you were to make a reboot of that show. It would be infinitely better for sure.

How's the Cans Without Labels cartoon coming along? Do you think it will be finished soon? I was getting concerned because I thought most of the prizes and the cartoon itself were due back in February and there were some people asking about that on the Kickstarter page.

I also decided to restart my blog up again despite getting all the drawing advice that I needed for potfolio's sake. I couldn't be any more grateful for what guys like you and Vincent have done for me over the years.

Compare the hands on this Monkey to the old Garfield hands.
This is better. I think the Bible even says that, "Teaching for pay isn't good?" I took a pic of someone with his phone because his face/head is interesting to me. We were standing in the doorway by the light outside so I could see. A girl comes up behind me and tells me to "move out of her way!" I never talked to her before. She has a fake laugh when sucking up to her Boss.

This is great. I want to frame this and lovei t forever

This Monkey actually reminds me of the Abominable Snowman in those Old Rudolph Films. Those are Classics? Maybe it's the eyes and Roar? I should look at those again as well. What is the line that makes something a Classic or not? There's a life like quality to this drawing.

greenhorngallery said...

A Character like this is too difficult to Animate? Not that I would know. What are the most complex Animations out there? I'm not sure.

If I had a company I'd call it Jeux or Spiele...

weird stuff happens in this blog's comment section

I was reminded of a guy from High School yesterday that I hadn't thought of since. He had been seeking a cure and was trying out different anti-depressants. He complained of his pills causing "cotton mouth." Then he came to School with an embroidered saucer plate on his head because he wanted to be Jewish. Jesus was Jewish. What did the Post it note say on His Cross?

OliviaDing said...

Nice picture! (& Thank ye for the documentation!)

paul said...

Hey, Johnny, nice drawing. So, can you please tell greenhorngallery to get off your back nicely? If anyone like him is not an artist like you, then he's no buisness critiqing you.

I mean it in a nice way.

P.S.
When are you gonna finish it?

kurtwil said...

Could this ape be George L's secret pet? Or a Watch-Ape? ;-)

(Sorry JK, can't resist the greenhorn urge to Loon.)

I used a parallel slack nose jumper cable on my pedestal.

My Uncle touched his knee with cellophane tape and said "Whoopie". His wife was in love with her Kelvinator.

Avocados are delicious.

Thanks for the picture, John. Ol' Merian C. Cooper will not only be proud of you, but jealous of you for your cartoony depiction of cinema's and stop-mo animation's famous big ape, King Kong.
