Apologies for being a bit quiet recently! Had a nice holiday, and have had plenty of work to do. I’ve also recently been made Executive Producer of a student radio station so have been writing and planning a couple of things for that too! Currently working on a bit of fan art to send to Cartoon Hangover….details soon.

This is the saddest thing

this is obviously a message from cartoon network..

This made me kinda sad. I’m a fan of Adventure Time, Amazing World of Gumball and Regular Show, but I also have lots of good memories of the shows in the first panel.

But nostalgia can blind us a bit sometimes.

Cartoons move with us. Times change, and some ideas lose their applicability to what we’re up to now. I can still laugh at the good-natured humour of Top Cat, but would the whole setup really work now? Or would we end up sitting with our friends telling them why they should find something funny? Scooby Doo managed to move forward, Looney Tunes tried, but not all shows can without a fair amount of rewriting. And if you’re doing that much rewriting, maybe it’s best to have a new show altogether rather than divide the original fans.

TV channels have to decide how to carefully balance the broadcast of comfortably well-known stuff and fresh, innovative shows. Boomerang was a decent strategy for managing this, Nickleodeon still shows Invader Zim and Ren And Stimpy late at night, but it’s always going to be a tricky area with finite hours of scheduling. That said, the second image is still rather jarring.

Funny and fresh cartoons are still around if you’re willing to try them. Aside from the examples above, check out stuff like Gravity Falls, Phineas and Ferb, Legend of Korra, etc. Frederator’s incubator Cartoon Hangover are even releasing some great stuff for free on YouTube.

Cartoons are made by exceptionally talented people that want to try new things and pursue new opportunities. They are written by, designed, produced and broadcast by specific personalities, and become inseparable from them. So when those personalities want to explore new frontiers, or even spend more time with their families, their shows change or make a graceful exit.

Ultimately, great cartoons live as long as we want them to in our memories. Scrap the comparison of the images above. You want to watch it again, find it. You want to tell somebody about it, then do so. You want to draw them, then have fun doing so. Goodness knows I still do.

The funniest moment in Monsters University!

Pixar really understands how to design and write interesting parents in their films.

The latest cartoon for Professor Science. I’ve been really busy with creating radio content over the last few weeks. Looking forward to doing some more original cartoons and fan art after this week.

I’d like to think that, somewhere in the last five series, Walter did this at least once.

My laptop unexpectedly broke. I have lost all of my new cartoons :-(

In other news, tomorrow I will have been on tumblr for one year. I started gonescribbling on my birthday as a first attempt to share drawings online with people I’ve never met and artists I admire. Thanks to everyone for liking, reblogging and following.

Here’s the 2-page spread (a pin-up poster!) from my newest comic in SpongeBob Comics #22, in stores now. This issue features the likes of Maris Wicks, James Kochalka, Stephen DeStefano, and Joey Weiser to name a few. There’s more to my comic, so pick up a copy if you see one.Edit: Process post over on my blog.

Reblogging this for a few reasons:
1. A stunning compilation pic. I love multi-character art with interactions loyal to each character (I’ve tried this a few times).  
2. This is one of my favourite artists and doodle sketchers. He’s done some amazing artwork using markers and dry-erase board. Follow him on tumblr!
3. For some reason, this has very few likes and reblogs. It deserves way more.
