Cartoon Flashback is back!!!

I use to post old cartoons that I grew up on. So I thought I'd get back into it. Here is a clip form one of my favorites The Jackson 5 cartoon. The Jackson 5ive was a Saturday morning cartoon produced by Rankin/Bass from 1971 to 1973, based upon the careers of the popular Motown recording group The Jackson 5. The series was animated mainly in London at the studios of Halas and Batchelor, and some animation done at Estudios Moro, Barcelona Spain. The director was Spanish-American Robert Balser.

Happy New Year

2008! Already? Wow! Since its a new year that means a new year of predictions for the year that I won't be able keep. Well, my first New Year's resolution is to redo my main website that is falling apart and hasn't been touched in over 2 or more years since I started the Blog. So What I may end up doing it removing all the art off this here blog and putting it on my website and starting this over with just day to day doodles. Nothing finished. I say that now and a year from now I'll be looking back at this post. My second New Year's resolution is to go ahead and get my artbook printed and out to the 5 people that will pay for one. My third New Year's resolution is to get back on my diet ASAP. I've been slack really slack. The cold weather hasn't helped any either. Well I think thats about it for now. If I think of anything else I'll edit this and post more.. lol! Have a great 2008!
