On To Banana Candy!

I have decided to give this blog a rest for a while, and have created a new webcomic called Banana Candy.

It's a pretty mixed bag, but there are a few recurring features and one-shots. Check it out here!

Pete, Mike & John Go To The Zoo

Uh-oh! Looks like John gets himself into trouble once again...

Geddytoons Episode 1: The Big Bummer

I had the idea for this cartoon a couple of years ago, based on audio I found by accident on some fan site.

It has been pretty popular among Rush fans so far, so I will definitely be producing some additional "episodes"!

I am pretty happy with the cartoon, but, of course, the internet being what it is there was of course a bit of negative feedback. One guy on some message board said something like "what's so funny about people getting crushed?" Well, obviously there's nothing funny about that. What's funny to me is just Geddy's attempts to get the audience under control. I thought that went without saying but I did fear that was a sensitive issue with some people, given recent events.

Anyway, enjoy!

Pete, Mike, And John In Space!

Mike, John and I go back a long way, and have had a lot of adventures over the years. This is just one of the many pickles we have gotten ourselves into!

As Mike pointed out to me, I can be seen in the cockpit with at least four sandwiches... clearly, more than enough if only I was inclined to share!

Mysterious Drop In Views...

I cannot explain it, but for some reason my Santa Claus Video has experienced a steep decline in views over the past week or so. It was doing pretty well for a while there... maybe I should invest more in advertising?

Or, I suppose I could just wait and see how it does next year. Thanks to all who checked it out, commented or "liked" it!

Happy New Year!

(Just in case... you can still buy the song on iTunes or Amazon!)

Do You Know Santa?

Ho ho ho! I just released a new original Christmas song, "Do You Know Santa?", and for your yuletide enjoyment created a full animated video. Check it out below:

Play it for the kids! I actually wrote this a while ago and recorded it last Christmas, and the concept goes back way longer. My friends and I rented a movie called "Silent Night, Deadly Night" about twelve years ago, and, as you can probably imagine, it wasn't exactly great cinema. If you watch Siskel & Ebert's review of it, that's about all you need to know. There was one line in it, however, that we just found hilarious and repeated to each other all these years. At some point, I figured it might make a pretty good tune.

But this song is just meant to be pure fun, and hopefully fits in nicely with all the traditional Christmas classics. I would really appreciate it if you would take a minute to watch the video, and leave some comments letting me know what you think.

You can buy the song on iTunes or Amazon, too!

Merry Christmas!

More On John K's Simpsons Intro

As I mentioned yesterday, this week's Simpsons featured a couch gag guest-animated by none other than animation legend John Kricfalusi himself. Today, Cartoon Brew posted an exclusive interview with John about the creation of the piece, along with a good number of sketches and production animatics.

For me, it was great to see The Simpsons (the height of cartoon writing) paired with John K (the king of the visual side) join forces. Check out the Youtube video here starting at 0:49 (for some reason Homer's speech has been omitted, hopefully they will fix this soon).
