Toon Weekly 09 [Apr. 8th, 2009|11:14 am]

One of the most fun things to work on these past few years has been TOON WEEKLY, an annual "prank feature" that appears in the April Cartoon themed issues. It's an over the top parody of celebrity gossip magazines with a mix of cartoon stars from all sources. It is always one of the most controversial pieces because lots of fans of the shows (especially Naruto!) don't like to see their favorite characters out of context. And they don't realize that we make fun of things we love! It's great fun imagining what cartoons do when they don't know they are on camera! And to create cross-universe relationships that are both insane and maybe make a bit of sense in their own way.

Here's some samples of this year's feature:



Shout out to Jacob Chabot (Mighty Skullboy Army) who did ALL of this year's artwork! That guy can draw in a lot of different styles!









To read the rest you gotta check out the April issue of Nick Magazine!

I don't like it. It is abysmal and it is sad you wrote this. It is sad anyone would write this piece of trash. The one redeeming factor from this pile of stink is The Thing's daughter. And even that isn't too good.
