As we’ve blogged already, The Bostie Boys is our cartoony Bowery Boys/Fleischer-inspired short we are currently working on.  While we are producing the cartoon in color, we will ultimately output it in black and white.  Here are some layouts, renders, and final B&W effects

Speaking of Ninjas (which we were two posts ago). our longtime friend and colleague Keith Rainville (‘From Parts Unknown’ magazine, and Los Campeones scriptwriter) has released the awesome-est collection of everything Ninja on the planet; Vintage Ninja.net

As with his work documenting Lucha Libre, this is a fantastic one-stop resource for everything Ninja.  There’s also a section on Books and Manga with cool art like this…

cool cats

Not only has this blog moved and undergone rejuvenation, but so has the little-known Fwak! Grab Bag : our pop-culture scrapbook that started as a reference  resource for our DANCE CRASHER cartoon.

WAY too cool for this century, cats and kittens ;)

Inspired by Tezuka – ‘Dead Ringo’

Logo for our new Bostie Boys cartoon ‘King Of Corny Island’ (more sketches/storyboards/layouts coming soon!) 

I used Toonboom Animate for the colors and effects – although I had to import the text from Flash as there is no text option in Animate :(

Here’s the larger picture (click image for full size)
