Now pen AND color pencil?


I gotz too much tyme on me hands.

Move along, nothin to see here


Just testing how well the scanner does when I do a drawing in pen rather than colored pencil.

Bums Away


Whenever I present a few S&K shorts to folks for the sake of feedback, I'm often asked "Why are they homeless bums eating out of a dumpster, desperate for a job here, and in this short, they live in a typical suburban home?". I have no answer to that. But, I doodled this anyway. The same person also asked why their medieval knights in one short, and astronauts the next, sooo...

My Name is Earl


This is Earl, one of the very few supporting characters in the S&K shorts (there's also Kasey's nephew Pupert Tick, who was used in four shorts, while Scrappy Duck the obnoxiously adorable chatterbox whom was the object of S&K's hunger for duck soup, lasted just as long). I considered him the more versatile, easy to use character, as I could pretty much pull him out any time I need a third character in a storyline, whether he's a sergeant attempting to keep his army base in one piece (an impossible task once Slam & Kasey are drafted), or a chief police officer who scolds fellow officer Slamson for being unable to catch bank robber Kasey, etc. He appears in The Old Army Game, Screwball Serenade (a bodyguard of whom Kasey has to subdue in order to get past the mansion gate to woo a lovely butterfly chick), Nap Happy, Do Not Distoib, Love Dat Kid, Slicked Up Hick (the last two being take-offs of Spike & Tyke), Cop Out and a few more I might be forgetting. As for his voice, try to picture him being voiced by the same guy who did the construction worker in Homeless Hare.

A Wild Roach OR Slammie Gets De Boot



Two of the very first Slam & Kasey drawings ever done (alas, I couldn't find ANY drawings done before that except Severin-Boy and Krossover Kronicles. So, no primordial Slam Wallaby or Kevin Kockroach anytime soon). This was done Kasey had just recently got his real name (he was Kevin for about two or three months). Notice Slam's lack of a Curly-inspired British accent, Kasey's lack of street thug dialect and has yet to give Slam his little pet name "Slammie", Slam's white belly, pointy nose, etc.

Thwam and Kathey


Remake of a crappy drawing done about 4-5 years ago (posted a little later, though).http://KaseyKockroach.deviantart.com/art/Thwam-and-Kathey-115104912

Powerpuffed Slammie


I may redo this one, but just in case I never feel like it (a high possibility), here's todays. :P

Posters for the Slam & Kasey shorts "CASANOVA COCKROACH (1951)" and "WALLABY WATCH (1949)", and a Nikita drawing to explain why neither of these are anything special.
