I Must Be Crazy!

I am posting my cellphone number here for you to call or text your comments and/or suggestions. I truly care what you think, so I thought communication via cellphone may be easier for some people.  As you may recall, I live in Connecticut which is in the same timezone as NYC. Make sure you check the time difference from where you are located so I don't get contacted in the middle of the night! Ok, here it goes (am I nuts for doing this?!): My cellphone number is 203 952-5977. I hope to hear from you soon! -Tom

Before It Is Colored...

Seeing that I won't get the color version of this cartoon until next week, I thought you would like to check it out in black & white first. This cartoon is a follow-up to the one I posted on October 10th. Hey, the Sand characters got what they wanted (and deserved!). -Tom

Cough. Cough!!

Let me tell you something about myself. I can deal with a lot of things; I can handle the stresses of work; I can face the challenges of parenting; I can even step into the dojo where I practice karate and fight anyone. However, when I get a cold, I become the biggest baby around! I mean it. I hate every stage of a cold.  First comes the dreaded scratchy throat (ugh!!!). Then the stuffed-up nose with the sinus pressure and hacking cough (oh, no!!!). Finally, everything begins to break-up and drain, but the feeling of being in a thick fog prevails (where am I??!). Good thing for me I am at the final stage of this hell, so the end is near. But for the last week, I wish I was in a ring fighting a 230 pound opponent instead of facing the cold I have been up against.  Like I said, I am the biggest baby around when I am under the weather, so your "get well" emails would be appreciated :)) Oh, I almost forgot; my colorizer (Christina) is super busy at work, so she won't have the next cartoon finished for about a week. I may post some other things before then, but the cartoon which is a follow-up to the last one won't be seen for a few days. Until then...cough, cough....time for some chicken soup. -Tom

Oh, Really?!

Don't the Sand characters know you get more bees with honey? So, they want to be in another cartoon? Stay tuned for my next post...they will get their wish :))

Sorry, Mom :))

As a child, I was sometimes a picky eater. I can remember feeding our dog "Clyde" the food I didn't want when no one was looking. Sorry, mom! I always loved your cooking, but broccoli wasn't my favorite..:-o

In Color!

I think Christina (the artist who colors the cartoons) did a nice job :))  I mentioned below the characters in the last scene are not from the main cast. However, the way Christina colored them, they are (Storm & Dusty).  I'm fine with that. Dusty is always joking around, so I guess it makes sense. Anyway, it's dinner time. I was at my parent's house the other day and my mom and brother made a pasta dish with a white clam sauce. Yum! My mom gave me some to take home. :)) That is what I am going to have to eat tonight. Love you mom! -Tom

I Just Thought Of This Quote.....

That's right, the following quote is one I just wrote. :))  Is it understandable? Here it goes: "For those who are comfortable saying, "I don't know," intelligence is steering the ship. But for those who think they know it all, brainpower has missed the boat."  Make sense? Send me a message with your thoughts. :))

In "Black & White" Before It Is Colored....

While Christina is colorizing this cartoon, I thought you may like to see how it looks in black & white first.  Btw, the two in the last scene are random characters (not from the main cast). Stay tuned for the final version. :))

The Dirt characters have a reputation of being ruthless, but this is taking things to another level! And to answer "Soot's" question in the final scene, yes, I have a problem with what he did (I am sure most people would). Unbelievable!

What A Mouth!

As a follow-up to my last post, I actually had fun camping in the woods on Friday and I didn't get attacked by a bear! I even did a little fishing on Saturday morning which, even though I didn't catch anything, was enjoyable and relaxing. All and all a positive experience. :))

Right Now....

....I’m inside a camper in the middle of the woods. Yes, you heard right. A contractor who works for us ask me if  I wanted to go to his campground. I thought it would be cool sleeping in the woods for the night, so I accepted his invitation. Well, it’s past midnight and here I am alone in a camper in the middle of the woods. It’s kinda cool, but it’s also kinda freaky. Every now and then, I hear an owl hoot outside. That’s kinda cool. But then, I’m lying here wondering “what other animals are out there?” That’s kinda freaky.  If a bear ends up in my camper, I’m going to have a heart attack! Omg, what the heck am I doing here?!  I want my cozy bed back home! Help me! Help!!  -Tom

Hi everyone! Sorry for not posting anything recently. I have been running around doing a bunch of different things (like attending my cousin's wedding :)) The next cartoon is being colorized, so make sure you check back soon. See ya! -Tom

Oh My!

Ah, the teenage years. Peer pressure, social media, and a pimple now and then.  Don't get me wrong, there are lots of good times during those years too, but struggles still exist. As a dad, I am right by my daughter's side every step of the way. It can be challenging, but no matter what, I will help her overcome any obstacles to ensure she ultimately leads a happy and productive life. :))
