Phineas and Ferb Craze!

Okay, remember when I had that whole Animaniacs craze 1/2 a year ago? Well now I've gotten hooked on something else: Phineas and Ferb! Arguably the best Disney Channel cartoon show in the history of Disney Channel cartoon shows! I haven't been able to stop watching episodes of the show on YouTube, and it's so hilarious, with it's reliable running gags and precision comedic timing, and well-written characters and plots! Plus a new song every episode! The appeal is in everything! Oh, and the pop-culture references! Gotta love those! Well, at least I do. I know, I should really get a life.

But in the meantime, I've been doing a lot of drawing to, in a way, extract the cartoon characters from my brain and onto paper in an attempt to clear my head a little. It's actually pretty therapeutic. What do you think? Do I do these guys justice?
Cartoons. Even though they're not real and just made up of thousands of drawings shown in quick succession on a television screen, it sure feels like they think and act like actual people. Thank you to Dan Povenmire and Jeff Marsh for creating this whole new world of children's programming. The best part (or the worst part depending on where you stand on spending time watching cartoons), is that much like "The Simpsons", this show is still coming up with new episodes every week, unlike "Animaniacs". Gee, I hope "Phineas and Ferb" don't suffer the same fate that Yakko, Wakko and Dot had to go through back in the nineties. Cancelled just because it wasn't attracting enough of it's target age-group. Please let it be as successful as the Simpsons. Thank You.

Doodles With Adam

Hi! I'm back, and I brought my brother Adam with me! My doodles are on the left side, and his are on the right. Click the picture to make it bigger.

Last year, I noticed how Adam didn't have much opportunity to show off his artistic skills, or practice them even. So now, on most weekdays, he and I take a page out of my trusty sketchbook and we doodle together side-by-side. It's a beautiful bonding activity, and the both of us are getting much better at drawing!
