First and foremost, I posted a new cartoon, it's a Pokémon parody with a bit of a Cheaters flair...

Got number six for the day, which is a feat I've become quite adept at accomplishing. It's all good though, it's already sparked some in depth Pokémon discussion that's immediately over my head, those people must have enjoyed it! Had enough tweens and symbols and junk to have to split it into 11 separate parts and recombine them with Swivel, which is SO GOOD, I can hardly remember the headache it was before and I'm happier for it.

But I've decided that, at least for a sizeable portion of the immediate future, that'll be it for parodies. Maybe the odd weekend animation here or there, but all of my substantial animation efforts will be focused on original material. It'll be a while before anything comes out, but as a little teaser, the next cartoon will be a Polly Otter short! It was the first thing I computer animated and posted online, you can see it here:

I've improved a great deal since then (that looks like garbage now) and I'm hoping I can take what I've learned and bring these characters and sense of humor to a higher level. Granted, the next one will probably be just another step on that road... but either way, I'm excited!

I don't know how many people actually watch the things I make (it's not many), but I always hear good things, and at the end of the day, it's nice to feel like you put a smile on someone's face. Thanks for watching!


A new cartoon from me

I seem to have a knack for finding just the right time to upload these toons so they can be buried by a bunch of awesome stuff. Great minds think alike? I'm going to go with that one.

Check it out, it's about Diablo and Batman kind of:

This came out on the same day as a lot of great stuff, and it kind of got buried. So if you didn't get a chance to see it, take a look!

Sort of an introduction...

Well, I've been uploading videos for, um, let me see... I guess about 9 months now? So now that the pregnancy period is over, thought I might say a few words. Sorry I'm not very active in the community, I kind of see Newgrounds as one of many platforms to show these cartoons to people, and I'm really more invested in creating and improving than... I don't know, whatever else. Does that sound rude? I'm just trying to be sincere, give a bit of an explanation about why I haven't posted in 9 months and probably won't post much in the future.

Maybe you've seen some of my stuff... Usually just misses making the daily top five when I post it, and I think I might have had a video featured once for about an hour, around Christmas? Don't quote me on that. I actually thought I stood a pretty good chance with my latest one, the reviews weren't too bad... Didn't even crack the top ten for the day. Oh well, maybe my toons don't cater to the Newgrounds audience too well. I post all the same stuff up on YouTube as well, but very few people watch it there. So I guess using this site and seeing how many stars I get is a way to get some sense of feedback.

All of that sounds too depressing! I'm having a lot of fun making cartoons, I will be continuing, you will see more of them (if you choose to watch). And I really think I've been improving rapidly in such a relatively short amount of time. So, in an effort to walk a fine line between humility and self-esteem, stick with me and hopefully you'll see the rise of another great animator!

Thanks for reading!
