Bulldogs: Variations on a theme

May 21, 2008

As I said in the previous post, my pen is now in mascot mode, hence the football-playing bulldogs of today’s offering.

I am experimenting with different approaches to the same character, and I was wondering if you, the reader, had a preference. I feel like the first one is too clich√©, a mere rehashing of the same old bulldog everyone uses. I prefer the second one myself, since he’s a bit more original. I also like his solidity. To me, he looks like the one voted “most likely to take a direct nuclear hit and walk away from it unscathed” by his fellow classmates at mascot obedience school.

Let me know what you think.

TOP DOG!

Curiouser and curiouser….

On a whim, I decided to check out my blog stats in regards to the search terms people used that led them to my site. The number one search term, used over FIVE HUNDRED times, was “cartoon dogs”.

Now, don’t get me wrong…I absolutely love dogs, and I think it is abundantly clear how I feel about cartoons, but I never would have guessed that would be such a popular search topic. And, just think, those more than five hundred visitors are probably just the tip of the ice berg. Who knows how many more surfers keyed in “cartoon dogs” but opted not to visit my particular contribution to the subject?

I think I may have stumbled onto a secret cartoon dog cult!

But seriously, if you are one of my readers who came to this post because you were searching for cartoon dogs, I’d love to hear from you. Was it more the cartoon aspect or the dog aspect you were looking for? Are you a big fan of all things cartoonified, or mainly dogs? How ’bout cats? Or are there, as in the non-cartoon world, “dog” people and “cat” people, and never the twain shall meet (without a bunch of snarling and hissing)?

Please help alleviate my curiosity.

To an ant, this thing is HUGE!!!!!

So, you might ask, why are tiny little doodle man and his poorly drawn dog so frightened?

Why, impending death by giant penny of course.

You laugh now, but I’ll bet you’re gonna have a dream tonight where you get crushed by a humongous faux copper effigy of a dead president and it’ll be the scariest dream you’ve ever had! Then who’ll be laughing?

Not you, because you’ll be too busy changing your sheets.
