Cartoon Network Stuff

November 20th, 2012 | Posted in Freelancing

Now that season 3 of the MAD show on Cartoon Network is over, I can probably share some of the work I did this season. I didn’t do much this year… only two episodes. One was entitled “Jurassic Park and Recreation”, and the other “The Poop-sodeon Adventure”:


Most of the ones for “Jurassic Parks and Rec” were based on the ones I did in the parody for the magazine. Stephen Lang was the only extra character. I tried something different for the “Poopsideon” segment… I drew those directly on the Cintiq. No paper involved. It was a quick turnaround job so I gave it a shot. Hate the results. Will not be doing that again. Don’t ask why Zack and Cody were in that one.


  1. Greg says:

    These are all so great, especially your Rashida Jones. She seems like she would be tough to capture, but you nailed it.

  2. Cliff Roth says:

    It’s interesting, it isn’t the line work that looks all that different between the traditional ones and the Cintiq drawn ones, its the coloring. Is there a particular reason you went with flat colors as opposed to the coloring you used on the Jurassic Park and Rec job?

    • Tom says:

      The coloring is basically incidental. They only want a general idea of color, and any gradations or shading I do they usually just simplify in Flash anyway.

  3. Tom Faraci says:

    Just caught the Jurassic Parks & Rec episode and I have to say the shirtless Ron Swanson riding a T-Rex was one of the greatest moments in all of television history.
