Hi Cartoon Fans!
So; the Finster Finster Show is in animation production and will be back in March. I’ve been pitching other shows. I continue to put Finster production art on the blog to share with everyone. Like you. By the way, all your art looks great!
I continue to put my hot rod art and other things on the blogs.
But, I like to share my life with everyone as well. And I thought it would be good to show the people that have influenced me and my cartoons the most.
Of all these people, I would say Ed “Big Daddy” Roth influenced me to draw more in the back of class than anyone. Ed Roth loved hot rods and hot rod art; and I do too.
Jack Davis for his wonderful, energetic artwork. Alfred E. Newman introduced him to me.
MC Escher who I discovered in 1980 and is a master [Read more…]

PITCH DAT FUNNY SHOW

Hey Cartoon Kats and Kittens!!!!
Yup…….the Frederator cartoon pitch thing has been going on with all kinds of good cartoon stuff happening!
Now that The Finster Finster Show is on the animation path at Rough Draft, it’s been time to pitch some new stuff.
I’ve been pitching the “Oh……..it’s Larry” show for the last few times to Fred and the gang. It’s been going quite well, with good, solid, creative suggestions happening after each pitch. You gotta figure, we’re working in a creative vacume and these are the times we push pin our creative heart and soul to the wall and wait for the response we’ve been waiting for.

Hey Cartoon Finsters and Finsterettes!
Yup…..we’re all back at the cartoon hulabaloo again!
I hope you all had a great holiday.
Finster production is going quite well on their “STORE WARS” episode. The Hollywood big shots will be getting their first peeks at some pencil test footage soon! I can’t wait!
Anyway; I found an old photo of the Finsters at Graceland with Elvis from 1958. Check out the teddy bear.
Yeah; I dug up my freezer time capsule in the back yard and found this photo inside! It was the only thing in the time capsule! WOW!
Well, that’s it for any more holiday stuff for me this year.
Take care and have a great 2006!
Your Cartoon Pals…… Finster, Finster and Jeff
