Ripping Friends

Thumbnail sketches from the Stinky Butt episode storyboard, 1999. Notice the professional "X" marks on the omitted scenes. That's today's lesson: "If you want to throw out a drawing just put a big X through it."

Mort Drucker

Copied from Mad magazine - what fun!


Whenever I open one of my favorite comics , magazine and such, if there are caricatures I get a kick out of copying them. It's almost impossible to improve on the original and at least it is great practice.These are from photos, the copy batch is coming on the next post.

20th century

Now that we are back on I would like to set the record straight as far as credit and whatnot. There are some people trying to stir up ill-will about John K. not giving proper credit to those who worked on Ren and Stimpy. There are plenty of magazine articles and interviews from years past where he gives much credit to many people my self included. We were all kind a following him on the show, he was the ramrod so to speak and no one who actually worked on the show really disputes that.
