A Message To Pam-Pam...

This could be a pointless message because the person I want to read it may never come to this site :(  With that said, if you do happen to log on here (you Wacky Banana), Crazy Ninja would like to say two words to you: "Email Me!" That's right, I shouted!  Well, it wasn't really a shout, but I raised my voice slightly (I would never shout at you).  Where was I?  Oh yeah, you are so stubborn! I reached out to you a few week's back and now it is your turn to write and I get nothing! You can message me from this site (scroll down the left side of this page) or you can say "hi" via the email address I gave you a zillion times.  This will make a zillion and one: It's as easy as that....why are you holding back?  I really do miss you and I hope to hear from you soon.  -Tommy

Here It Is!

This is the winner of the cartoon drawing. Cindy from Riverside California wanted to see the Dust Specks characters on a firecracker. It  didn't take me long to come up with this one :))  Thanks, Cindy, for your entry.  Boom! -Tom

Hi Everyone.....

The next cartoon should be finished shortly.  Once received from my colorizer, I will post it asap :))   The cartoon I will be posting is the winner of the drawing we held a few week's back. Cindy from Riverside, California was the lucky contestant :)) I can't wait to post the cartoon so she can see how her idea came out. On a side note, I am going to be working with my artist, Terrice, on illustrating the children's book I wrote called "A Message from Dust Speck's - You are Special." I describe the book on the left side of this page (scroll down to see).  I believe if I print a bunch of the books, I can market and sell them.  As some of you know, I work for a commercial real estate firm and, therefore, have a lot of connections with retailers in the area who would let me put the book in their stores.  Who knows, maybe this will be the start of something big! While Terrice and I work on the book, we will be taking a break from preparing new cartoons. However, I may post an "oldie" now and then and I will periodically show you how the book is progressing. In the meantime, thanks for all your kind (and many times funny) emails and for your support. Peace out! -Tom

While You Wait For The Next Cartoon....

Armani and I just got back from our cousin's one year old birthday party. The event had a Halloween theme, so everyone dressed in costumes :)) We had a groooovy time!

Another Old Cartoon While you Wait....

I should receive the next cartoon from Terrice any day and then Christina will colorize it.  Once complete, I will post it pronto!  Also, the "contest drawing" cartoon will be prepared soon.  That strip should be finished in the next few weeks. As always, stay tuned :))

Yes, I Am A Black Belt...

I received a few emails after my last cartoon asking if I really am a black belt in Kempo Karate.  The above picture is me accepting my belt after a four hour (and absolutely grueling) test.  The test was really nonstop hell. I even had to spar roughly fifteen others who were also going for their belts. The person who is shaking my hand is an assistant instructor and my "sensei" is the one on the left waiting to present me with my certification. It was a very challenging and rewarding day that I will never forget.  I actually may go for my second degree black belt.  I have been practicing a lot at home and I am considering getting back in the dojo to train.  I will keep you posted :))

And The Winner Of The Cartoon Drawing Is......

......Cindy from Riverside, California! Roughly seventy five entries were put in a hat and Cindy's was the one drawn! Cindy has a funny idea as to where she would like to see one of the Dust Specks characters. Now the fun part. I will come up with a cartoon based on Cindy's idea and have my artists draw and color the strip.  There are two cartoons currently being worked on, so Cindy's idea should be posted by the end of the month. Thanks for all your entries which were hilarious! Someone actually wanted to see Dusty on Hillary Clinton's butt...yuck! Anyway, congratulations, Cindy!! You rock!

Armani Got A Job!

I get emails asking about Armani, so here she is at her first job working in an ice cream parlor :)) She enjoys it there and gets lots of tips! Armani is really growing up fast. In a few months, she will be getting her driver's license.  She presently has her "learner's permit" and can drive a car if a parent accompanies her. She wants to drive!  Today, we went to the movies and saw "IT."  Awesome horror flick!
