Check it out, it’s my latest entry to Jon Esparza’s infamous Crazy Cartoon Experiment! This one involved drawing a cereal box starring a monster. And what’s more scary than dubstep? The name is a play on the Skrillex song “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites”. And there you have it…the most obscure CCE submission ever. Be sure to check out the rest here, and view Jon’s other cartoons as well! Take care!CCE6


Check out my submission for Jon Esparza’s Crazy Cartoon Experiment 5! The idea was to draw your favorite SNL skit as reenacted by fairytale or mythological characters. I chose the Sean Connery on Jeopardy skit, with Sean Connery as Tinkerbell. Click to enlarge. You can check out the rest here. Enjoy!CCE5_KimBelding

Well, we tried.

Over the past two months, Jon Esparza and I have been running Crazy in Pink, a Kickstarter project to create animations based on Jon and I’s cartoons. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to successfully fund the project.In fact, we didn’t even come close. We raised 11% of our intended goal.We aren’t sure what we did wrong. We talked about it constantly on social media and through crowdfunding websites. Perhaps we should have tried outside of social networks and use alternative methods. Fact is, we’ve seen people with half the fanbase and promotion we have reach goals that were the same prices. After the money we would have reserved for prizes and Kickstarter’s share we were working on a tight budget to begin with, although no one else seemed to understand.Don’t worry though, this isn’t the end for Crazy in Pink. What we discovered is that we do have supportive fans…they’re just poor, I guess. We’ll be coming up with alternate ways to bring the project alive after all.
