Birthday Gift Glitch, Part Eight

Just so ya know, some of the animal neighbors in Animal Crossing are invertebrates.

Resetti seems to know plenty about the inner workings of Animal Crossing like I imagine Rover does, so he could probably fix this. I'm sure the procedure will involve lots of yelling and high blood pressure.

One of the best things about the latest Animal Crossing is seeing the Resetti brothers' headquarters, which I crudely drew a portion of in the last two panels. I wish you could see that kinda stuff with the other non-neighbor animals. I remember hearing that you could find Tom Nook's house in the original, Japan-only Animal Crossing on the N64. But that might of been a rumor.

Birthday Gift Glitch, Part Seven

Place it next to the first one, only slightly higher so they get the two-level effect with a little patch running down the middle.

HA! He's oblivious. And I'm an idiot.

Good Grief, MORE Girl Sketches?!

Yes, more. And more to come.

I believe the date on this sketch is 2006. I remember this one in particular cuz I finished it in one of the restaurants in Disney World's Animal Kingdom while waiting for our order to come up. Yes, I know the subject matter has nothing to do with Disney, but still...

So what. She's cute. Shut up.

Galactic Bowling


Finally, my hobby and my job have come together in a big colorful mess. On Saturday nights, the bowling alley I work at does that thing where you put on black lights and play party music. Pretty much every alley has their version of this. Ours is called "Galactic Bowling." For the image, I took the patterns on the carpet and the panels above the pin deck as a reference.

The real reason I did this was to do a more in depth Illustrator ...uh ...illustration. I usually don't do these unless I'm getting a grade for it, as I prefer Photoshop, but I've been getting a lot better at it thanks to the lessons. Now that I'm more familiar with it, I figure I'll start doing Illustrator stuff more often.

The rainbow lane is kinda wonky, as I had to constantly adjust the curves to make it fit in the letterbox frame and make the blend of the colors look okay. I love the way the ball and pins came out though. In fact, I loved them so much, I saved them on their own:

Conan and Leno: The Oldest Story Ever Told

Jimmy Fallon is somewhere off panel.

More stuff from John, which is usually the case if the comic is based on current events. We threw a few other betrayal ideas that didn't make it in, such as Lincoln's assassination, Cypher and Neo, and when Mario jumps off of Yoshi over a bottomless pit to reach the next platform.

As for my personal take on the whole Leno and Conan thing... idano. I watch Letterman.

Makes for a funny-a$s comic, though.
