Follow That Cartoon (Part 1)

I’m starting a new series of entries today that I’m really excited about. I’ve decided to follow a cartoon from it’s inception, hopefully all the way through the sale.

So, here’s where ti all begins:


The cartoon we’re going to follow is the top one. It seems a little weird, but I like it.

(In case you can’t read it, here it is: Car mechanic holding baby w/ rattle to person – “I think I found what was causing that rattle.”)

I saw my baby daughter’s rattle on the counter and this one just sort of came to me.

This is how I always start. I just free associate for a bit and see what comes out. Then I jot it down on a piece of paper and toss it in a box to be drawn later.

I’ll write again when I do the sketch…

Les Widget Andertoons

One of the craziest parts of having my cartoons online is finding stuff about them in different languages.

I took a little French in college, but I can’t translate all of this:

Affichez sur votre blog une bande-dessinée différente chaque jour, selon un catégorie que vous aurez choisit précédement. Les BD Andertoons sont utilisées dans le célèbre Reader’s Digest, dans le Wall Street Journal et dès maintenant sur votre blog Typepad.

Another blog has this to say:

pour faire apparaître une bande-dessinée chaque jour

Anyone know enough French to help me out?
