Frankie Fowl comic now online

Plans to make actual copies of this comic probably won't happen, but I did post the story online here: http://www.kpcinema.com/timrocks/frankie.html

The 20-page story is a very serious analysis of a duck couple and their relationship. It's the story of what happens when two ducks come into some money, and the scheming interior decorator who tries to separate them from it.

It came with this reminder:

Anti-Christmas Card

I don't have any holiday art this year, so I'll put up something I did last year. I'm a scrooge, but that doesn't mean I don't want you to have a nice day. So I drew this little guy:

merry christmas, from Cartoon By: Rosko!

I thought of this last year, right after X-mas, and have waited a long year to unleash this jolly bastard onto the world...

The Lord taketh away; the Lord giveth.

In the wake of our loss of Sarah White, allow me to introduce the newest Salty 'Ham Cartooneesta: Brian Ratigan!

Brian's the first one to embed animation in his SHC post, so check it out. He does stop motion stuff, like this:

He's also the guy that's working with Nolen Otts on the other animated short (besides mine) that got a grant from the Cultural Alliance. Can't wait to see me some of that!

Losing a Cartooneesta

SHC Sarah White is leaving us! As I understand it, she'll be somewhere in upstate New York, where her fiancee is stationed, for at least 2 years . . . perhaps never to return! I offered her Honorary Ex-Pat status, but she said let's just take her post down, and if she comes back to Dixie, she'll join up again. I'll keep it up for another week, so you can all revisit her links and such (click her name at the top of this paragraph to get to her post).

So long, Sarah, and good luck. You were definitely one of the shining stars of our little group, here.

Caricatures of Jewish Celebrities - 2

Check it out - SHC Garth Potts somehow got to exhibit a 2nd batch of his Jewish Celebrity Caricatures at the Levite Jewish Community Center! . . . I guess it doesn't hurt that he's the Executive Director of the place.

You know where it is, right? On Montclair Road, in B'ham. Here's the web site: bhamjcc.org
The show is up 'til the end of December, so drop in and see it!

Garth, you might take some inspiration for your third installation from Adam Sandler's now classic Chanukah Song (youtube link), where he names a whole bunch of awesome famous Chosen People.
