Posted 2 new toons today! WOOT!
For those who don't know me, I've worked solo on Foamy / Neurotically Yours for over 15 years. So that's what I do. Currently in the process of updated ALL older Foamy episodes to full HD with NEW episodes being posted every 2 weeks on YouTube and NG
Been There, Yes.

Seriously though, thanks for all the support over the years. I appreciate all the input folks have been giving me through the years as well as the constant encouragement to ignore the slings and arrows on the NG forums. It's been a crazy trip from episode 1 to 200. Not bad for a one man show. : )

Posted "Creative Cremation" the 200th Episode of Neurotically Yours. yeah, that's a lot of episodes. All done, single handed. Good for me : )
For those who haven't been keeping up with the illwillpress blogs, there's been a bunch of changes. I'm starting to post the majority of the Foamy toons on YouTube, so there's a channel for that now. And NG posts have been pretty infrequent due to the daunting task of re-encoding 200 Foamy episodes. Stuff should get back to a normal posting routine. Of course, I'm still one guy, so it's a pain in the ass to do everything single handed. So far so good though, so who the hell am I to complain ^_^

I posted 2 new toons this week. The new Neurotically Yours of course, and the very first animated 4y-Records Cartoon. For those who have been keeping up with my stuff over the years, you know all about it. For those who don't, 4y-Records is about a surly record store clerk who deals with all sorts of idiotic customers. It's musical comedy for the musical snob in all of us. The humor can be pretty specific when dealing with music, (I worked in a few record stores and have a pretty vast knowledge about it)... so pardon the random obscure refrences in the future. As the series goes on, which it may or may not, I'll be working in some movie commentary as well as video game stuff. No record store can survive on music alone these days, so having the 4y guy stock up on non music merch opens up the story and possibilities a great deal. Also, these cartoons will be somewhat short I'm trying to keep the humor as fast paced as possible as I did with the comic strips. (Most of which were 4 panels). We'll see how things pan out in the future. For now, hope you all enjoy! For those who hate me on NG, It's a whole new series to bash. Enjoy!

After going through a few thousand emails and a lot of twitching, I updated Germaine again. Here's what's happening. I'm advancing the whole "Bald & Fat Germaine" storyline by 2 years. So every script having to deal with Germaine being bald, & her weight issues and so forth have been ripped out of the series. Since folks don't have the patience for story and sub-plot. I'm just gonna get rid of it. The unused stories and scripts will be put into a comic book / graphic novel at a later time. The basic concept was to have Germaine, revolt against society, shave her head, gain a bunch of weight, have some sort of self-awakening, and eventually, accept herself as a person with the nifty and all powerful wisdom of Foamy! Eventually, Germaine was always going to return to her normal self, maybe with a few extra pounds, but I don't really want to have fans sit through two years of it. If I had more animators or something I could churn out all the cartoons like a mill and have the story progress faster. But after 8 years or whatever, I'm still the only one doing everything. So I guess some comprimises have to be made. Most fans of the show will be happy that the whole fat/bald Germaine will be ditched sooner than later, and that's cool. Just irks me in a way because I wont be able to deliver the story the way I wanted to. I'll get to work on the graphic novel after the next DVD is finished. New Germaine cartoons start in September.

Posted the new toon "Fat Idols" today. Also, for folks into doing Foamy Fan art, GO NUTS!!!! NG has the art portal now which freakin' rocks! Post your stuff up damn it and send me a link.
As far as I know, NG doesn't censor your stuff, so feel free to get crazy!
Which means they'll probably be a ton of naked Germaine fan-art. Oh well. -_-

Like, 3 people sent me this image by GraphicBrat of an "Uber Boober" Germaine. The link goes to the uncensored image, (but you have to sign into deviant art for that). Where's our enourmously exaggerated fat & bald version? (Don't send the guy hate mail for drawing it either. Some folks get kinda defensive about people drawing Germaine naked. If I can deal with it, so can you.) If ya can't laugh at the size of those boobs, you have no sense of humor ^_^ (New Toon in a few days too)
