The convention (I'm late!)

I'm late! Sorry, I've been busy the last few days. But on the other hand, it gave me an idea. I rarely late at anything. I'm the kind of guy who's always half an hour ahead. I really hate being late and I decided to use this part of me as my character. So here it is...
Philip works for the government and loves it. He's organized and always in time. Most of the other workers in his department lack motivation. Philip likes to surprise people with how well organized he is. One day, his boss ask him to represent their department to the next international governmental clerk convention, the IGCC. Philip is really excited about this opportunity. Usually always calm, he suddenly hugs his boss and walk out of the office celebrating this "victory". As he realises almost everybody in the office looks at him dancing and jumping around, he calm down and walk to his cubicle acting like nothing happened.
Few minutes later, Tony, the laziest clerk in the office come in his cubicle to talk.
Tony: Hey! It looks like we are going to spend some time together.     
Philip: Sorry, what do you mean?
Tony: Dude, the boss didn't tell you? I'm going to the IG-sissy with you.
Philip: No! I mean, he would have told me if you...
Tony: NAaah! You know how he is. Don't want to hurt anyone and too shy to go there by himself. He's a sissy you know. He would have been the greatest International clerk sissy.
Philip: It's two letters. You know that!? C and C.
Tony: Anyway, it was nice meeting you. I need to go now, all the department is going for a beer at 5. See you Monday at the car rental company on the 5th street. Don't be late! HAHAH!
Tony leaves the cubicle.
Philip thinks about the fact that everybody is going for a beer and he didn't know about it. Then, he realises he really don't want to go with Tony to the convention. He jumps out of his cubicle but everybody already gone.
-That's how the story starts-
Then, Philip will be more and more annoyed by Tony on the way to the convention.
On the day of his presentation, Philip will be in worst position to arrive in time to the presentation. ( just think trouble with the mafia, he is far away, dirty, lost his speech and the rental car is destroyed, he has no cash, etc...)
Tony had a great time with Philip and thinks Philip enjoy it too. He consider Philip like a good friend now. Philip panic and blame Tony for everything. Tony find a way for Philip to get back to the convention but decide to don't go with him.
Philip run to the stage ready to make his presentation. On the stage, he starts reading his cards. Looks at the people in the crowd and realise they are all a little bit like Tony. Some are dirty, some are lazy, some are loud, etc... Philip drop his cards and starts talking about how the relationship in offices are awkward. He describes how he has been working for twelve years without noticing the others clerk around him and them without noticing him. He tells the story of his trip to this convention, how he made a friend and that this friend now on will be his motivation to go to work.
A guy stand up in the room and shouts he love him too, it's not Tony. Philip tells him it's not him. Another guy stands up and say the same thing, it's still not Tony. Another guy stand up but Philip stops him before he says anything.
Philip: Sorry guys, I would like to get to know you but the friend him talking about is Tony Jikinsky. I'm sorry I need to go and find him.
Philip find Tony in a weird place... or Tony come to the convention with fireworks, they hug under the fireworks while the crowd stand up. The fireworks starts going in all directions. Everybody panic and run away.
Then, it finish with a normal day of work for the new two friends.
The idea was to see  Philip struggles with being in time and organized so much that he would realise how it prevents himself from living his life freely. I made it short but I think it could be a great script. Maybe one day I'll do the full version.
I hope you enjoyed it!

Cats are better

A idea came to my mind this week. I was thinking how intense many girls react to animals, specially cats and dogs. I realize how funny the story of a guy and a cat competing for the love of a women could be. Plus, I wanted something abnormal.

So, the guy (let's call him Tom) has the ability to change into a cat and use it to be pet by his girlfriend (Sarah). After a certain time, the Sarah realize that Tom is never there when she's with the cat. She confront him and Tom says he hates cats. Sarah has to make a choice and she throws Tom out of her apartment. He turns into a cat and get back in when Sarah starts calling its cat name.

After some time, Sarah decides to date new guys. The cat makes sure it never works. One day, there is one guy too perfect (Paul) and the cat can't get rid of him. The cat choose to get back into its human form to appologise and seduce the girl again. The girl don't want to see Tom anymore. The cat don't know want to do anymore. As the girl and the new guy are about to make out, the cat change into Tom again in front of the girl. The girl shouts. The new guy want to kick Tom out of the apartment but Sarah tries to stop him. Paul gets angry and leaves. Sarah know now why she couldn't have a boyfriend and a cat at the same time. She wants to give another chance to Tom. Few day later, Tom arrives from work. He smells something weird. Sarah hides something behind her back. She shows Tom a new cat she bought to still have a cat around when he is in his human form. Tom looks the cats. The cat smiles. Tom is in trouble again. END!

Pitch Designs

These are the designs I decided to work with for the pitch. I'll make model sheets for the four main characters. Finally, there is going to be a cat, a donkey, a pig and the pig's little sister (who's a chick not a pig).

Recipe Comic

I want to make a comic about a recipe. Here's the script:


At 9 am a Saturday morning, BIP BIP BIP! a clock rings. PETE wakes up looking at the readers. 
Hi guys! I'll show you one of my secret to a perfect Saturday morning.

Pete puts his slippers on. Wish a good morning to his toys collection and go to the kitchen.

The magic starts in the kitchen. First, you serve yourself a big glass of chocolate milk.

Pete drink a sip and smile with a mustache. He puts a super-hero apron. Ingredients: 1 1/2 cup flour, 1 1/2 cup milk, 1 cup sugar, 1-2 teaspoon vanilla, 4-6 teaspoon melted butter, 2-3 teaspoon oil (canola or olive), 2 eggs and a pinch of salt.

Now, we are ready for cooking pancakes! You will need a big bowl, a coffee cup, a tea spoon, a whisk and a half-cup measurement spoon. I modified the recipe a bit to have less dishes to wash. Take the big bowl and mix 3 half-cup of flour, 2 half-cup of sugar and a big pinch of salt.

Pete mix the ingredients making a cloud of flour over the bowl.

We can now make an inverted volcano in our bowl. Push the flour in the center to make a hole and fill it 3 half-cup of lava... Oups! milk! I meant milk! and whisk until it's homogenous.

Pete pour lava making a hole in his counter.

Put 4-6 tea spoon of butter in a coffee cup and make it melt in the microwave. Let it cool down because it's probably too hot right now or not completely melted.

The BUTTER is melting in pain.

I'm melting! Aaaarrghhh...
We can now complete the recipe with two eggs, 2-3 teaspoon of oil, 1-2 teaspoon of vanilla and the butter. Whisk everything to make it as smooth as possible. The next day the mix will be perfect so you can do it in advance if you have time. The mix is ready! Put it in a pan and don't be frustrated by the first one. The first is always bad.
A PANCAKE is laughing madly in the pan.
HAHAHA! I'm so bad. Pure evil!

Pete sits on the couch with his mountain of pancake watching TV.
Finally, you eat the greatest pancakes watching cartoons in pajama. Have an amazing Saturday morning!

The Wizard Club

Four nerdy friends decides to train themselves to master magic in order to stop being bullied by the though knight and creatures living in their kingdom. Learning by mistake is certainly not the best way to learn magic but it can lead to unbelievably funny situations. The four friends starts a journey full of travels, enigmas, monsters and awesomeness.

There's a bird, a pig and a donkey. For the fourth one, I'm not sure yet. I thought it could be a hedgehog, a sloth or the bird little sister. I'll try to refine the designs. I'm not satisfy yet. The hedgehog look too much like the one in Simon's cat but I'll probably won't use it anyway.
