Welcome aboard!You are going to score points with Tom M. by posting a Popeye strip! And what a great example you posted. That's a great gag and a wonderful bit of characterization. ...And now I know what those little creatures are! Desert wolves ate my lawn when I lived in San Diego!
Nice first post. I like the little character with the starched cuffs. It's so androgynous it could be a bare armed cocktail waitress or a British invasion pop star. I guess androgyny would be an important ingredient to the "cute" that you often explore. And I love the Thimble Theatre stuff. Wish I had all the Fantagraphics reprints to read right now.
Hi Kali,Are you a big Popeye fan? I love both the original comics and the Fleischer cartoons. Set 2 of the cartoons is coming out soon. I'm hoping that "Goon Island" is on it.
I can't get to your senior project film. Is it at http://kalifontecchio.com/hawaiiancowboy_5708_smalledit.mov
Tom, go to the bottom of TAG member links. Click Kali's blog. It has a link to her Roy Roger song based short.
"Wish I had all the Fantagraphics reprints to read right now."You should definitely get those- I have them and they keep me so happy!Hello Tom!Yes I am a HUGE fan of both the comics, and the cartoons (although I saw the Fleischer cartoons before getting my hands on the comics).The first volume of the Popeye dvd is great, but I got a lot of flack from angry 15 year old/40 year old fans for getting the chance to giggle on the commentary tracks for the Ali Baba, and some other cartoons. Although it was sooo worth it getting a free dvd set and a chronological manual of random facts for each cartoon.Ya Tom, that's the right link- I wonder why it doesn't work for you? Weird!
