Maude In Dreamland And Boy Ben

Ever have dreams about bits and pieces of your day (or life) then your mind jumbles them all up in a weird way? Same with Maude.






A new character for an idea I have (thanks to this site for the inspiration!)

These Maude comics are so awesome and spur of the moment. there isn't even a concise story needed for them to be entertaining!

I LOVE Ben! Character background can be located here

Niki said...

You ever have a dream about the future? I have! But no, I haven't actually had one of those dream of the day dreams, so I guess we're even.

David Gale said...

These look great! Some of the rendering and faces remind me a little of Milt Gross.

Monica Grue said...

Nice drawings! The human marvel is so creepy dude.

Molly said...

Keep up the great work!

Totally spending the rest of my day on thehumanmarvels.com

Shawn Dickinson said...

haha! Great comic...very surreal. This one would be cool in color!

patrick said...

The Maude comics in the cave remind me of Tom Sawyer!

And the craniopagus kid is the best idea for a character ever. I hadn't heard of that, creepy and fascinating!

Kali Fontecchio said...

Nico: Pussydoodles.......

Niki: I don't think I've had a dream about the future. Last night I dreamt about drawing, which I've never really dreamt about before. It was a very bland dream, haha. I guess I'm thinking about all the work I need to get done...

David: WHOA, thanks for the sweet compliment!

Monica: He wants to love you!!!

Molly: I WILL! That site is insanely addicitng, but I read everything on it, sadly.

Shawn: Hmm... perhaps!

Patrick: I love two heads, so fun to draw!

Only good colorists make black and white look as good as these.
I think I've only had a few dreams that I've remembered as "color dreams", and come to think of it, only a few that I've remembered as "black and white". The rest??? I dunno....
I wouldn't trust a character like Ben in the hands of most people, but with K. F., its a different story.

Zach Bellissimo said...

Awww man, Kali. You should make a full Maude comic book! I bet it would look amazing :]

Kali Fontecchio said...

Thomas: Wow thanks!!

Zach: I'd love to do that!

J Cola said...

your expressions are always so fun.
and that site...it's addicting.

Sean Worsham said...

Ha I love Ben! Now let's cue the Michael Jackson song "Ben" a his theme. ;0)

Kristen McCabe said...

Friggin Sweet, Kali! These look awesome! I love the panels where Maude goes inside the cave.

Kali Fontecchio said...

Jenny: thanks!

Sean: never heard of it!

Kristen: hi Kristen! Thank you! <3

D. (de Damián) said...

I've been skipping through your blog, great designs! You're very talented.

M. R Darbyshire said...

I like this little Jiji head that's up in the corner.

Pedro Vargas said...

Cool comic! I like how you composed each panel. Super appealing. I like that Ben character too!

Kali Fontecchio said...

Marcos, D., and Pedro:

Thanks! I appreciate it!

Darby: you found her!!!! She is elusive, no?

John-Michael Morgan said...

WOW! I did not notice the Jiji head till I read Michael's comment. That is so cool!

And the comics look so awesome. Love to see more like the first one!

M. R Darbyshire said...

Do I get something for free now?!

Yes she is elusive and quite a rascally rabbit.

M. R Darbyshire said...

That two-head boy from bengal looks like a peanut man!

J. Tithonus Pednaud said...

Thank you for the link and I's glad my site could lend some inspiration.

You do some wonderful work! My better half is a cartoonist/animator and we are both glad I took a moment to follow the link back to your site.

Cheers
