What's not to love about cartoons? From Calvin & Hobbes, to the Peanuts, to superhero comics of Superman and Spider-man, back to Looney Tunes. Cartoons have been my life since I was a baby. Until fourth grade, I wanted to be an inventor like Doc Brown, but I had no sense of mechanics or math or anything one would need to actual invent anything. But I drew everything. It was only a matter of time before I fully embraced my drawing. Since then I've created characters like Tick, cartoon T.C. & Jason, and countless others.

Shark Night 3D and the Bit Strips Problem

Okay, I can see the appeal of Bit Strips, but they sort of bum me out. A few years back, I had a drawing technique where I would do portraits using only diagonal lines. Darker areas and more space between lines. A light touch here a lot of pressure there. I could manage to pull off some great little pieces that I even sold for a time. You can check a lot of these vert-art pieces in the artwork section here on the sight. It was a fun style, until photoshop added a filter that did exactly that technique at the click of a button. Then, people would just assume I used that effect when I posted artwork in that style. It was really annoying. Now, Bit Strips has come and made the act of drawing a comic as simple as clicking a few buttons. This strip alone took a near total of 7 hours to draw in pencil, ink, scan, and color in photoshop. As I sat here getting a sore back from hunching over my computer and tediously coloring Ben and Mike, I jokingly said, "There's got to be a better way!" and my girlfriend Candace chuckled and replied, "There is. It's this new thing called Bit Strips." Ha! and >sigh< I suppose it isn't an epidemic, but I can still feel a little bummed out when someone's one-minute comic gets a bunch of likes and shares, and some of my more favorite tcomics get ignored. Is that ego talking? Maybe.
Anyway, it is very satisfying to have a new comic to share. I don't have the time I need to do these as often as I'd like, so it's nice to be able to come back. Hope you all enjoy (especially the new and sleeker design on cartoon Ben).

tcomics - YEAR 4 - The Return

Well, it has been a long, long time, but I'm back! I may never catch up to the current films, as I'm over a year behind now, but I am going to try, dang nabbit! I have plans for some new features and styles for the comics - freshen things up a bit for a new year and "season", and if I ever DO get to the current films, I will treat you all to a "feature-length" style comic. Let's see if I'm able to accomplish such a feat, or if this will be a post I look back at in a year and go, "Oh yeah, I remember making that promise..." Here we go!...

Candace Coloring Comics

While I continue to put off posting new comic strips, here is a collaboration with the lovely Miss Candace Ostler. She is becoming quite the graphic artist, so I put her coloring skills to work on a panel of one of my tcomics. You can see a bunch of her work at www.CandaceOstler.com. Get over there and tell her what you think of her wonderfulness!

And continue to check back here for comics... which I promise will post soon. For now, below, is my original panel, followed by Candy's coloring.

a tcomics update

Hey everyone!
Well, as you've noticed, the comics have not been coming as quickly as they have been in the past. I assure you it is not a laziness factor, it is an abundance of creative endeavors that have taken me from my drawing table and out into the world.

Over at The Rewatchmen, I have been performing movie snobbery 101 with fellow film geeks in a weekly podcast that has us re-reviewing old flicks. We discuss current movie news and have general discussing on cinema and TV. If you're into movies, this might just be your thing. You can even download the episodes and listen to them on you itunes or ipod.

Meanwhile, back in Wisconsin, I'm not waxing poetic about other people's films. No siree, I'm making movies. If you haven't watched some of the films I've been involved in with Firmament Films, click on The Videos link right here on the site, or better yet, go check out Firmament Films and like them on their facebook page.

The group has been hard at work. This June, we will be feature in an episode of PBS Milwaukee's The Director's Cut where we discuss the 48 Hour Film Project and our people's choice award winning short The Seven Year Wish, which I co-wrote and co-starred.

Then, coming down the pipe, we have three projects I wrote and directed: Significant, a sci-fi thriller, Cold Charlie, a war drama, and Plans Change, a short-short that is so much story in such a short time, you simply won't believe.

And finally, in addition to Firmament Films, I wrote and co-star in Relish, a thriller that gave me a chance to do some interesting acting.
If you'd like a sneak peek at all of these upcoming films, go visit Candace Ostler Illustration. The lovely Candy has made the posters for most of these flicks, and she is quite the talented lady.

So folks, I hope you understand the lack of artwork these days. I give you my promise, there are plenty more coming. I just need a moment to breath and get back to the drawing board.

Although, I may have other things keeping me busy before that happens...

Mr. Timmie's Penguins

I've been a busy fella. Keep an eye out here at tcdewittart on all pages for what has kept me from posting for nearly three months. I will have four new films appearing on the video page, listen to the Rewatchmen over on its own site, and stay turned for many developments on the comedy and writing pages.

Good to be drawing again. Now, back to beating up Tim...
