A special FReeptoon
With Christmas coming and going, I honestly figured this week that I kind of deserved a little break (not much of a break, since some of these were harder to make than my usual toons). Instead of making my usual FReeptoons, I decided to do something special for today: special, genuine hand-crafted ZOT GRAPHICS!!! You know we all love them. You know we all cant get enough of them.
I made four personally hand-crafted graphics for the special occasion of sending trolls to their well-deserved graves. Feel free to use these or send them to any friends as much as you want; they should play a valuable service in our on-going war against the fiendish trolls.
Sorry about the size, everyone.
And now for another big announcement. This one will take some explaining.
Years ago, in my last year of high school, I created and drew a cartoon series, a non-political one, about a boys misadventures during
high school. Loosely based on my own life, the strip was entitled The Dinkelmeyer Zone. The main character, Freddy Dinkelmeyer, was in the grand tradition of Charlie Brown a lovable loser whom nothing but bad things happened to. But he always remained optimistic and never learned his lesson.
The strip was very informal: I simply drew it in a notebook with pencil. It started out by doodling in class but evolved into something more. If anyone wanted to read it, they would walk up to my desk and look over my shoulder or ask to see the whole notebook. It was actually very popular and well-liked in all of my classes.
Now for the announcement: I am taking a poll to see if any of my FReeptoon readers would like to see The Dinkelmeyer Zone as well. If you would like to see them, send me a FReepmail or leave a post here: either one is fine. If at least ten people say they would like to see it, starting next week, I will dig up my old notebook from the closet and start running the strip along with my FReeptoons as sort of a bonus toon. Dont worry: it will not interfere with the FReeptoons themselves.
Hopefully this isnt my jump-the-shark moment. Ive only been doing this a few months!
I must warn ahead of time that the Dinkelmeyer cartoons are not very well drawn. They were really just advanced doodles in class. But I was told by loyal readers and classmates that the writing was very funny and got a lot of laughs. The strip was started as a personal expression of loneliness and poignancy, but at some point it took a turn and became funnier, goofier, and more cartoonishly outrageous.
That is all. Enjoy.
Yes, of course. I will look forward to it!
so that's one yes, then? Tally is at one.
This one is very good!
I want to see your Dinklemeyer cartoons. I have been depressed for a while and I just know that they are what has been missing in my life. Please hurry so I can start the year on a high note.
LOl, okay. THat's two so far.
A definite yes ... just to get the ball rolling. Please ping us when you hit ten.
My kids have been home and have just been introduced to ZOT technology ... LOL
I'm glad that's your favorite, because that one took a LOT of hard work.
Looks like Freeper material?
Nifty graphics. I especially like the troll with a fried noggin sitting at its computer.
Yes, yes, yes.
I wished htat would have turned out bigger, though. Photobucket.com has been shrinking my uploaded photos.
You are added.
THe count is currently at 4 votes for yes. Unless Lucy's three yeses count separately; making it seven yeses.
Nice! :) I especially love the first second and fourth ones hehe. Thanks :)
Count me in, at number 8. Can't wait.
