First up is new comer Chris Wilson of England! Another WIZZO artist, he envisioned Frosty being targeted by a bunch of hooligans! Damn kids! Chris was the first one to finish this time and totally killed it! Way to go!
Up next, Vinnie the Vampire creator Tim Green makes his CCE debut with this hilarious take that shows the most likely reaction if Frosty were to suddenly come to life! The really crazy part about this one is that I myself almost did something similar! It's wild how alike some of us think. Guess that's why it's an experiment!
My CRAZY Canadian brother, Offseason creator Warren Frantz, did this one! Instead of being scared of Frosty, he realized that the Snowman's tremendous girth could be a huge advantage at the hockey rink! Frosty's width would make it tough to score on him! Unfortunately, another harsh reality of life creeps in: The Stanley Cup Finals don't happen until early Summer!
Next up is another CCE newcomer, Tomversation creator Tom Falco! Tom envisioned that Frosty is still a jolly soul and would probably just dance his way into society! He seems to be fitting in quite well. He even found himself a cute Snowgirl!
How good is Zorphbert and Fred creator Dawn Griffin? She had her submission done a full year before I even thought up the current CCE! I swear Dawn you're like Prof. X or something! As you can see, Dawn's Frosty has a bit of a mean streak to him! A snowman with butt cheeks... What more can really be said about that?
Well, you all waited patiently, so here it is, My entry into the CCE (Not to mention the latest Mushrooms)! Frosty's discovered by a pair of Fratboys who decide to introduce Frosty to the brotherhood that is a College Fraternity! I had to flip a coin on whether to do this idea or my other one. I'm kinda glad this one won out, especially after I got Tim Green's submission! I kinda feel bad for going gross in the last panel, but since I went sappy in the last Mike and Mindy, I think it all evens out.
Kim Belding of Picpak Dog knocks another one out of the park as he envisions Frosty trying to see the World, and learning that there are some places a snowman just shouldn't go! I feel so bad for that poor lady sitting next to him. I think she got a bigger jolt than ol' Frosty there!
Beep Club creator Owen MacRae makes his CCE debut with a more practical way that Frosty could come to life! Since there is no such thing as a magic hat, robotics are used to bring Frosty amongst the living! Given the blasters, I think it's safe to assume that a scientist of the "Mad" variety was involved here!
Next up, the lovely, beautiful and ever so charming Michelle Hernandez of Kat Daycare sent in this whimsical piece that shows Frosty living it up with a few friends! And best of all, FROSTY HAS ICE CREAM!!! When I saw this, it reminded me of that old Snowman cartoon from Britain. Michelle has such a beautiful style. She adds so much to the CCE.
Last but not least, the Grand Poobah of the Buns and Wieners Society, Crashsuit, sent in this animated masterpiece. Poor Frosty finally comes to life, only to forget that Hot Coffee and Ice are a bad mix! I've often said that Starbucks is an evil corporation. This cartoon is living proof! I urge all of you to boycott these Snowman Murderers now!
And thus concludes Part 1 of our Christmas fun! So far, it's been a pretty amazing selection, with hardly any similarities! You know, this isn't a competition, but I do feel some MVP awards need to be given out! So in two weeks, I'll announce the MVP's for all of the CCE's thus far! So PLEASE leave comments or tweet me your feedback! Your voice matters!
Well, that's all for now! I'll be back next time with Part 2 of the Crazy Christmas Experiment and some more "Frosty" fun! And I would once again like to urge ALL of you to please give this Holiday season. There's plenty of time and lot's of suitable charities. Please don't let a child go without this Christmas. Donate today! Take care and I'll catch y'all later!
Wow...so many awesome entries. Some really great work that you've collected here.ReplyDelete
I agree with MrGranger. A lot of fun and awesome works we got here. Also I like that the usual topic (christmas) got left out of it, thanks for that.ReplyDelete
Frostii, I have a slight memory of it but it is damn long ago.
Well, let's start with Chris. It's fun and fits the time, through first I thought something else then spray paint was used (I blame it on a other cartoonist I follow). Still it makes it even more silly.
Francesca did it nicely with the choice of scenario and not too bad on the realisation, just one little critic point. The sound-pressure suggestion is a bit out of place for me here, since I see it as a setting with a person watching a documentary (so no reason for a loud running tv). Forgive me if I didn't got the point here.
Tim certainly did give us the image of what probably will happen if a snowman starts talking. I definitely agree with you on that Jon.
Warrens idea is certainly funny. To combine a snowman and ice hockey, like that.
Tom's idea is nice but it feels as if I see that scene (with others in it) too often. Sorry man.
Dawn's one is fun. Aliens carmoflaged as your typical animal, and it seems two made the wrong choice. But it focused to much on the playing wit the snow and choosing the wrong role, and so the comeback to the theme isn't coming through for me.
Your's is freaky, to drink with a snowman. You hit the topic nicely, but no trick since you gave it out. :p Made me think what he probably
puke out, maybe some frozen beer ?
Kim has certainly a nice idea, took me a while to figure it. Guess I lack the idea how the typical weather in Arizona is, I have yet to visit there. Usually if I hit the US I end up in sunny California. ^_^
Owens Mecha Frosty I can totally relate to. It makes sense why he is alive, and a mecha without blasters is not a cool mecha. I really love mecha series so yea, a definite LIKE!
Michelle made wonderful work, which make me wanna print it out and hang it up the wall. It's really lovely, and give a bright happy view onto the theme aswell as winter in general. In short, agree with your opinion, Jon!
Crashsuit certainly bring word-wise a bit life into this with his animation work. Hot coffee is deadly for sure if you're a snowman or can seriously injure you as a human. So if you burn yourself, kiss a snowman and think of Frosty. ;)
Through afair Starbucks also have nice iced stuff, I'm quite hooked on those. Through yes, their pricing is evilish. But I'm going offtopic here.
Your CCE winter edition was lots of fun again, and I look forward to more. Sorry that I took so long, but like mentioned various stuff kept me busy.
