And now for tonights Dinklemeyer toon.
This cartoon is a show of the strips early days. I hadnt fully created the world I wanted to yet, so I had to experiment with new ideas. In this one, I introduced Karen, a hot popular girl whom Freddy has a crush on. But he is too afraid to talk to her, and she does not notice him at all.
This showed something I havent tried much in my FReeptoons: drawing attractive women is an interesting challenge for an artist (especially a cartoonist). Its something that I always like to try. Drawing a babe is a challenge because it has to be absolutely perfect: one thing wrong or misdrawn, and the whole drawing looks awful and deformed. Its a very precise thing to do.
Unfortunately, while it was a good idea on paper, it never really came together right. Karen makes one other appearance later on, and then she vanishes from the strip forever. Despite the promise it showed, I just couldnt think of anything to do with the idea. This is not the first time that will happen.
I've got to run somewhere inconvenient, so I will be back to chat with people in an hour, maybe less. See y'all.
Hey, I like your toons. Not for nothing, but everyone does the hot-girl-shy-guy thing. It's probably best it didn't go anywhere...Have you ever considered the oblivious guy/obsessive girl angle?
Good stuff again!
I love tonight's Fat Teddy cartoon. From your ink pen to God's ear.
I'm back, everyone.
Wow. His essence. I wonder if Teddy drinks a lot after big meetings in the Senate...
There is another hot girl character that will show up later. IN this case, she is hot and popular, and talks to him a little bit and secretly loves him. HOwever, he is oblivious, and he starts mumbling whenever she's around.
Unfortunately, that one didn't work either. There just wasn't anything I could do with that.
Thank you, thank you.
And you too.
Destiny is calling...and so is the non-islamic world.
Islam must die...we must expose it for what it is.
You like the Islamic toons, don't you? I can't make any promises about it, because with doing political cartoons, your material comes from what's going on in the world. Wait till a terrorist or mullah or the president of Iran or someone like that comes out and says something, and there's usually a good chance I'll be making fun of them.
Me too? I didn't draw any cartoons.
I really enjoy your cartoons, keep it up.
No, I thanked Fierce Allegiance, then I thanked you. Because I'm just a great guy like that.
Yes it is. For some reason, Freddy and his little world was more interesting than other characters populating the school (you'll see what I mean later).
