Yes, use those love handles of steel. Very cool. I also like how He-Hog has his own miniature city ala Kandor. Great work.

Wow! Beautiful!!

AWESOME! Screw pitching it around to studios, you and John should just MAKE these goddam cartoons in Flash and get rich. Then give me a large percentage cut for the encouragement.

Jim Smith said...

Cbris your business sense is remarkable. We were actually making cartoons until Pontiac went tits up.It's another sad story in the life of cartoon genius.
On a happy note I will be part of a book signing at Hyena in Burbank on Nov 14? I'll nail that date for ya.

Hey Jim

you never showed me that bottled city of human women pic!

I'm gonna add it to the presentation pitch, ok?


it's great.
We need to make that movie

Jim Smith said...

Oh so that's what it takes to get you to comment on MY blog, sure I still have a pile of that He-hog stuff. I'll bring it to your place.

Ollie said...

So this is a movie pitch? Cool! I saw the rough cartoon you made of this and thought it was great.

David said...

I love the first HeHog picture! Maybe I'll ink it for fun!

And yeah too bad about that Pontiac thing...Isn't there another way to get money in for the George Show?

Jim Smith said...

David if there's another way besides bank robbery I would like to know. Seems like that's the golden key literally. He who holds the money holds the key. If I had the money I'd give it to John who would give it back to me to draw it. You would think a loving God would provide for his favorite chil'ren. hee,hee.

James said...

beautiful, as usual.

Rick Roberts said...

I am all choked up...

I have to... I have to leave the room, execuse me.

Weirdo said...

Hey Jim. I'm sorry to hear about the cancelled Pontiac cartoons. Damn economy.

Anyway, I just wanted you to check out this post I did on my blog and see what you think. Feel free to comment. Sorry for bothering you like this.

No bother weirdo - glad to take a look.

Jack Snider said...

I hope He-Hog gets made. If not, the world will never forgive itself.
