My Celbrity Cellmate (The Todcon 2007 strips - part 2 of 3)


This is yesterday's CMX Suite strip from Community MX. It's the second of three strips based on TODCON: Las Vegas 2007 - the web developer's conference that took place June 11-13 in Las Vegas.

This strip details the results of going to Las Vegas after a disasterous instant "spray-on-tan" in which I "painted" Tom Green blue. There really isn't a Las Vegas law that forbids anyone from looking like a member of the Blue man Group but what the hay... I needed SOME way to get Tom in jail with a certain P. Hilton (who just happened to be relased from jail yesterday so it was a bit of simpatico in terms of the timing).

Again, a new CMX Suite strip appears on the home page of Community MX every Tuesday.

This week's CMX Suite strip



This one's a few days late folks but here is this Tuesday's CMX Suite strip. It's the first of three strips based on TODCon - The Other Dreamweaver Convention... at least, that's what TODCON used to stand for. Now, it's sooo much more then JUST Dreamweaver.

I wasn't able to go this year but that hasn't stopped me from making strips about it. This week's strip, Tom Green has decided to get one of those instant spray on tans with (as usual) disasterous results.

Listening to the office computers around me go HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.....

Scott Fegette discovers fatherhood


Today's strip is a celebration of Scott Fegette's new found "Daddyhood".
But here's the problem with doing a weekly strip sometimes...

When I was first coming up with the idea for this strip, Scott and his wife were still EXPECTING. But as you can see from Scott's Flickr account, him and his wife already had the baby:

Scott's Flickr account!

Now... Because you all are long time readers of the strip (and I know ALL of you are, right?), consider this post a DVD extra you won't get any where else. Here's some "secret behind the scene tidbits" about this strip:

1) Scott's Wife:
I had never met or seen any pictures of Scott's wife before - including any pictures of her he may have posted on his Flickr account. My cartoon of her is completely made up but after seeing her photos, I thought I came pretty darn close.

2) Fiction mirroring reality:
When I first told Scott what I was planning to do (and sent him a rough sketch of the cartoon), not only did he and his wife love it, it also turned out to be pretty darn true as well. Scott and his wife didn't want anyone to know the name or sex of their newborn so even though it wasn't QUITE a N.D.A. (Non Disclosure Agreement), it was pretty darn close!

3) Scott's T-shirt:
I'm letting out a little secret here but Scott actually used to be a TRUE Guitar Hero God! If you're lucky, you still might be able to find proof of Scott's musical career by doing a Google Image search for him (but you didn't hear that from me! LOL!).

And there you go...
Three little secret tidbits about today's cartoon.

Who says you don't get something for your money every Tuesday morning at CommunityMX?

Tom Green's singing debut!

I meant to post this last week...
My gooooood friend (and book co-author) Tom Green (the OTHER one) recently decided to get into music. well, being his friend and all, how could I NOT do everything I could to help promote his musical tour?

Here's a snippet of the next American Idol (okay, so Tom's Canadian - does that REALLY matter these days???):


Go here to see Tom's "video".

Currently listening to The Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack. Tim Curry STILL rules!!!

Illustration Friday - June 7, 2007


I posted this before in a earlier Blog but this is specifically for "Illustration Friday". The them being "Suits". I figured "Bob the Elvis impersonator" would be perfect since you can't get any better then the good ol' leisure suit of the 70's!
This was for a t-shirt design for a web developer's conference. The full color design is below:

The Dog Days of Summer Blockbusters...


Yesterday's CMX Suite strip. Being re-posted from Community MX.I hadn't drawn Stephanie "Stef" Sullivan in the strip in quite some time. My cartoon model of her is one of the more complicated characters to draw in the strip. She came out pretty good in this one.
