Hey everyone, our official Christmas cartoon is officially in the portal... officially...

This one was a bit of an experiment in animation for myself, and sadly my PC got all virusey in the middle of production... but now I'm back with a brand new MacBook Pro and I'm ready to make more of those amazing little flash cartoons for everyone.

In other news, Bill (Maverick32183) and I will be returning to Massachusetts for the holidays so not much animating will be going on for the next two weeks, however I have found that between working full time and having some semblance of a life, I am still able to finish a cartoon in about 2-3 weeks, so you can expect the next one in mid to late January.

Till then, Happy Holidays all.

Hey everyone! There is a new Sketched cartoon available now in the portal. Check it out here:

It stars myself and J.S. Thompson (A.K.A. Silent War)

The next SKETCHED toon is underway and will have a holiday theme. Details are sparse, but it will be starring Bill Rinaldi(The boss of the Pregnancy Testsketch), and Jake Richardson of "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back," and "Clerks II" fame. There are also brief cameo's from myself and Lori Starkgraf.

So check out the new vid and let me know what you think.

Rock on Newgrounds.

I've been hard at work animating the next SKETCHED short so I figured I would drop a frame of concept art and let you guys know we are about two weeks away from completion. So check out the included first frame and feel free to add your comments and speculations. Sorry, that's all you get for now... okay, fine, here's one of my favorite lines... "I really like The Rachel Maddow Show!" ...confused? Me too, and I'm halfway done animating the thing.

Also, anyone who didn't get a chance to check out the first episode and would like to know what kinda show you're dealing with, you can check it out here...

Hey, here's an added bonus! A really old live action sketch starring myself, Matthew Murray and Daton Woodard. It's only about a minute and it's a PSA concerning the way some people (a.k.a. Bill Rinaldi, a.k.a. Maverick32183) react to the loss of a videogame.

Well, that's all for now. I will return with a brand new episode in just a few short weeks.

Hey! Frontpage! Thanks to everyone who viewed and voted.

I am currently working on the ever nerve wracking sophomore effort to entertain you fine people here at newgrounds. I give it a rough release date of mid to late November. Of course we have plenty more skits where that came from so be sure to keep an eye out for plenty of "Sketched" content.

P.S. I am working on a fix for the people who are having problems with the cartoon. If you are reading this and your computer did crash please let me know where in the cartoon it crashed so I can try to figure out what is wrong.

Thanks again everyone.
