Andertoons On GoComics

gocomics andertoons debut

I’m proud to announce that beginning today my Andertoons cartoons are going to be rubbing shoulders with Charlie Brown, Calvin & Hobbes, and Alice Otterloop, to name just a few, over at GoComics!

Just in case you’ve been living in a cave…

GoComics from Universal Uclick is the online comics portal for the most popular comic strips and cartoons in the world and the Web’s largest catalog of syndicated newspaper strips and webcomics. GoComics content updates daily, bringing you the latest work from critically acclaimed comic strip creators, Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonists and the hottest up-and-coming talents.

Neat, huh?

I’m really excited! But maybe not as excited as Universal’s John Glynn:

“We’re delighted to have Andertoons join the GoComics family. Years ago, and for motives that still remain unclear, I happened to be wearing an oversized sombrero with a brim made of sharpened steel. Luckily I took it off just before I saw Mark’s work for the first time, which was fortunate for the other patrons of Sammy Jo’s Internet Café in Effingham, Illinois, because that darn hat would have flown off my head in a hurry (and may have hurt someone) due to the fact I was so taken with his work. That dangerous chapeau was confiscated a long while ago by the overzealous folks at the ATF, but Mark’s refreshing and funny comics are still around. And now I’m recommending to everyone to enjoy the unique look and superb comedic timing of this 21st Century humor-monger on GoComics.”

So head on over to GoComics and check out today’s Andertoons cartoon, leave a comment, and maybe send it to friend! You could also tweet it, digg it, stumble it, and fluuurng it. (OK, I made that last one up.)

Seriously, I’m thrilled to introduce Andertoons to a whole new audience, and thanks to John and everyone at GoComics for this opportunity.


LEGO Catwoman Line Art

I’ve been wanting to try my hand at another large LEGO art piece, but was looking to try something other than the standard mosaic. So I created this tiled line art piece based on the Darwyn Cooke Catwoman.

All the black tiles are connected with white hinges underneath and connected here and there to plate studs placed strategically in the white tiles.

It measures about 20″ x 30″ and I had to order around 1500 of the 2×2 white tiles from Germany to get it covered.

Here’s a little closer look:

I’m really pleased with the result, and I’m already planning some other LEGO line art projects.

You can see it better over at Flickr! Meow!

BTW, don’t miss these other awesome Catwomen by Bruce Timm, Art Baltazar, Mike Maihack, Amanda Conner, and Darwyn Cooke!
