Hey gang, I read something in the last week or 2 about Chowder (on cartoon network) getting canceled and Cartoon Network pushing in a new era of live action shows. Now I don’t know if the canceling of chowder was related to the programing shift, but it got me worried about the fates of some of my other favorite modern cartoons and how i should do something to spread the word about their greatness. So I had a day or two of down time at work and thought I would do some illustrations based on some of my favorite cartoons on the air right now just to show a little support. So let’s kick it off with Flapjack!

Flapjack is funny, Gross, and cute all at the same time! Love it! And you will too if you check it out on Cartoon Network.

Here are the pencils:

And here is the slightly modified final image. I was going to ink this with a pen and make it a little more “on model” but The pens I had dried up , so I went with the ol’ brush (Raphael #2). I thought it turned out alright. This was my first time drawing them, and I couldn’t really find any model sheets, but I had some fun with it. I did all the background stuff in photoshop using some old watercolor textures I had scanned in for a music video we did. I was really surprised how true to the show the textures looked. yay me.

I’ll post my Mighty B Illustration next week!

thanks for reading!

-B

    Awesome. Love Flapjack. We are also big fans of the Mighty B here at the Smith compound. I’ve been wanting to play around with some fan drawings like this myself if I can find the time. I draw a lot of these characters outside with sidewalk chalk at the command of my toddler overlord. I think we are currently in the Golden Age of TV cartoons. There have never been as many great cartoons on at the same time on so many channels. The sad thing is this golden age might get killed by retarded network idiots before anyone notices how great these shows are. The Bat-Mite and Kamandi episodes of the Brave and the Bold are probably the best things Warner Brothers has made ever. Or at least in the last 30 years.

    The Mighty B is my favorite right now, I’ll talk more about it next week. Bat Man Brave and the bold is super cool I haven’t seen the Kamandi one or the bat mite one yet, I gotta pick up the pace on those!

    Yeah I hope these cartoons get a chance to breathe. The newest season of Flap jack has the crazy turned up to 11. J Chris Says it’s too scary for his kids, he might be right. But I think it’s the best thing around right now. Just odd colors and weird lines. It’s great.

    Kamandi has been on two episodes. In one, he’s just there in the opening sequence but they recently did one where he was the feature story. “Last Bat on Earth”. It was all set in the future in Kamandi time and Gorilla Grodd leads an army of talking gorillas against Kamandi and Bat-pants and an army of talking Tigers. = divine genius! And the Bat-Mite episode was like an episode of Freakazoid or Animaniacs. You gotta see them.

    I probably like Flapjack better than Kassidy does but it is still great. It’s so awesome looking. And it’s funny.
