Unlike the first two guest cartoons, Roland Perez of Metal Jaw Comics and more specifically Z&G decided to showcase his characters at age one. Z is Zech and is a Zombie. G is Geist and is a Ghost. Thus explains what Roland said when he sent my the cartoon:
Here is the guest cartoon for 1 or 100. Of course I went with a somewhat disturbing choice with picking baby Z & G. Which is disturbing because it is weird to think of a baby zombie and a baby ghost. I hope you like it. I got a bit of inspiration from one of my favorite cartoons “Muppet Babies”
Definitely plenty of inspiration shown from the Muppet Babies but who is that handsome fellow on the wall? Love it. Thanks again to all my guest cartoonists. Make sure to follow all of them on Social Media and continue to check out their sites.
Soory for the delay on this one it showed it missed the scheduled posting. If it knew that why didn’t it just post?
Today’s Guest Cartoon is from Michael Pohrer of Tooned In/Welcome to the Jungle fame. Here is how Michael describes his webcomic:
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man … a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. There’s a sign post up ahead, your next stop Welcome To The Jungle©. In their Golden Age glory we present Earl and Cami Bronze 2062.
Welcome To The Jungle© is a feature cartoon strip that revolves around Bronze’s fitness center owned by Earl Bronze. Earl seems to effortlessly glide about the daily business of running a fitness center located in Osage Beach, a bustling paradise. Cami Bronze is Earl’s wife. As luck would have it they live right next door to Jim and Edna Jungle.
Jim Jungle is a fitness instructor at Bronzes. Edna Jungle, Jim’s wife tries to cope with everyday life while dealing with Jim’s foibles and failings. Jim and Edna are an average couple grinding through daily life just as you and your neighbors.
Chip Diel and Chet Rayban are two regular fitness center members. The duo work out often with little to show for their effort.
The whole premise of the strip centers around typical daily life. Except for one thing, “IT’S A JUNGLE OUT THERE”. Witness the spectacle of human failings through the outrageously overactive antics of a huge dysfunctional group of the most unlikely characters to ever be found at a fitness center in a bustling paradise. Presented in the fabulous 2-D Cartoon-O-Vision format. Welcome To The Jungle©
I don’t think Michael is ever at a loss for words. haha. He doesn’t have comments on his site right now but he is very active on Google Plus so feel free to comment on his work (well other than this one) over there or interact with him. (Michael’s Google Plus link). Thanks Michael.
First Guest Cartoon while I am away is Kim Belding’s PicPak Webcomic. Shown is PicPak the dog at age 100. Here is how Kim describes the webcomic:
Picpak Dog is a simple gag comic that revolves around Picpak, a big pink dog, his wife Wakky, a small blue cat, and all the folleys that they and their friends get themselves into. It’s simple, family-friendly and all-ages fun. The 100-year old here in question is Picpak. Things have changed a lot in the future. Somehow Picpak has aged, but his children haven’t. Kids these days.
Thanks Kim for being first out of the gate and first to send me a guest cartoon. I love the socks with sandals look. So dad-like. Go show Kim some love. Thanks
Stef Marcinkowski of the web graphic novel Sarah Zero, surprised me with this parody send up of Metallica’s album cover from “Master of Puppets”. The original can be found on Wikipedia
Check out Stef’s blogpost that describes his process. FIFTEEN HOURS, yes I said 15 hours to complete this monstrous task. And with an infant crawling around the house too. That is a true Bearmaniac!!
