In Black & White......

My colorizer always does a nice job, so I can't wait to see this cartoon when it's finished. Once completed, I will post it pronto!  I just got in the office. In the US, it's Presidents' Day, so most banks are closed, no mail is delivered, and schools have it off.  Some offices are off too (there was very little traffic driving to work), so today shouldn't be busy. I hope all my readers have a relaxing day as well! Talk to you soon. -Tom

Thursday is Valentine's Day and Dusty, once again, is trying to capture Bunny's heart. She's a tough one though! I think she could have rejected him just a little softer.  Anyway, I hope everyone has an enjoyable V-Day. Don't forget to shower your loved ones with lots of hugs, kisses, and, of course, chocolate. This year, I have two mom and daughter :))

My DNA Results Are In (Updated)...

On December 28th, I mentioned how I was going to get a DNA test to determine where my ancestors are from. Well, I did and the findings are in! I met my brother at my parent's house and we looked at the online data together.  The service that did the testing (MyHeritage) determined, as expected, I am primarily Italian from southern Italy. I get this from my dad's side of the family and from my mother's dad. The part that was different than what we anticipated were the results stemming from my grandmother on my mom's side.  We always knew Russia was her homeland because her family spoke the language and practiced Russian culture. However, MyHeritage indicates my grandmother's family apparently settled somewhere in the Balkans, which includes  countries such as Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, and Romania (to name a few). It was awesome finding out new things about myself!  I am so glad I did it :))

Before It Is Colored...

This cartoon features Rock and his partner in crime, Soot. The color version should be finished soon, so stayed tuned. Looks like Rock and Soot live in my area. Everyone around here could use an extra heater the last few days. When I left for work today, it was MINUS 2 degrees....brrrrrrrrrrrrr!!  Later in the day, my friend Dave sent me a text stating it was minus 23 where he is from (the Chicago area).  The cold spell is supposed to break in a few days, but it can't come soon enough.  The person I work for went to Costa Rica  for two weeks and is coming back Saturday.  He likes it so much, he plans to get a place there so he can go every winter.  He said I can use his vacation getaway anytime for some fun in the sun! I will definitely be going :)))) -Tom

Children's Book Update....

Hi, everyone! I don't know about you, but I am glad it's the weekend!  I had a hectic work week, so it will be good to unwind for a few days. With that said, here's an update on the children's book I wrote.  It's been difficult for my artist, Terrice, to produce book illustrations because he has been busy with several obligations. Not a big deal because my goal, at this point, is to get a literary agent to promote my idea to publishers. To secure an agent, all you need is a manuscript, which I have. As a result, it looks like you won't be seeing book related drawings in the near future (sorry).  If I get an agent to represent me, I will let you know.  Securing an agent is extremely difficult, so it will take perseverance. Hey, most goals in life take effort, so I won't give up!  Talk to you soon :))

Oh My!

When I shop at Walmart, I typically don't care what clothes I have on (to an extent).  Some people, however, take it to another level! I'm sure most of you have seen the websites that post pics of the outlandish attire Walmart shoppers wear. Kinda like the folks in this cartoon. Yikes!

Just What I Thought...

I saw that coming! Hox is delusional if he thinks his meeting with Rock went well.  I guess dust mites are lacking in brains. Also, Rock may have flaws, but I can relate to his  eagerness to help Bitsy.  I feel the same toward the people in my life and toward others in general. Just as Rock will run to Bitsy's aid, I am there for those in need. Remember, most people can't do it alone in life. Make sure you lend a hand whenever you can :))

Hox Is Unbelievable!

Some say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result. I think Hox falls in that category. When will he learn it is wise to move on from something that is not going anywhere? As Tagma said in the final scene, Hox is "making a Big Mistake" (once again). -Tom

In Black & White Before It Is Colored...

The above is the conclusion to my previous two cartoons. The color version should be finished soon. Once I get it from my colonizer, I will post it pronto!  Rock may be tough, but he is a softy for Bitsy. It's also good to see Micro wasn't harmed :))
