Jenny said...

why doesnt he look more thrilled about having hot midget girlfriend?

maybe she blew all his money at the mall and he's worried about how he's going to pay rent.

Hey girlie-you're the talk of the studio round my neck of the woods...much appreciation has been expressed for your work and your stunningness.
I've posited that your beauty may be the only thing that's saved you a tremendous beating at more than one bar mitzvah, given the deep cuts your subjects receive at your hands!
Now, this here is you in sweet mode, still killer. And your guys' stuff sure does look right together.

Awesome work.

Marlo Meekins said...

Jenny, ha thanks for the compliment. Katie and I have completely different styles! but this drawing came out funny and looking pretty good.

BrianB said...

I'm telling you. There needs to be a cartoon series called Marlo & Katie! Both your styles and your charicatures of each other mesh so well.

I like how they have such a strong attachment to one another and if you took her guy away, she would lose part of her head. Some couples!

What's that on the guy's chin!? It can't be what I think it is!

Clarke (Csnyde) said...

What A great combo you two crazy-ass cartoony chicks make.

And who doesn't love to see a guy with platnum green hair and pencil point cheekbones standing beside a girl with a pumpkin head and picket-fence teeths.

I know you guys drew waaaay more than this, so stop holding out on us already adn share bastards!

Gabriel said...

I'd never ever do that, I'd end up ruining the other person's drawing in the end!

lupe said...

I love your work! It is so amazing!
=D

Vanoni! said...

The composition here is stunning!

Green hair's trumpet nose and shaving bump covered pooninny chin draws our eyes right across the paper toward the bucktoothed buxom's boobs!
And just in case our eyes should wander, his 'greater than' adam's apple assures us, "you should be looking to the right."

Fantastic! :)

Great work!
Very inspirational.

Trevour said...

I love chlorophyllic hair! These remind me of an alternate universe Owen Wilson and Björk on a farrrr away planet! That is, a planty planet where clefts are prominent, and noses aren't smooshed?

Jenny said...

Hey Marlo--this is me, other (LA)Jenny. : )

Darling, WHEN will you make with the updates? I know, I know--at your tender age you have a LIFE, but still..! It's just tootoo frustrating! We want to see more Marlo!

Jenny said...

Hmmm...I can't see where to email you so I'll answer the your query on me blog:
I got into storyboarding after 3 years and going into much debt at Calarts(which I loved, whatever John may say about it--and Eddie taught there once himself, I'm sure had a big impact--anyway); got my first job at Warner Bros in '89 and did character layout(which was based on--who else? The Bakshi Mighty Mouse production model). I barely knew what I was doing...I started segue-ing into cleaning up boards(including Eddie's and Chris Reccardi's), then did little bits o'boarding myself, then after about 2 years got to take on whole segments of shows. I loved it, but I hated seeing poor stuff come back from overseas when we had killer artists doing such beautiful drawings here--Bruce Timm, Fontanelli, Eddie, Lynne, Jim Smith, etc.etc. It was disheartening and I craved going into features, telling longer-format stories, not working from a script, pitching the old-fashioned way(seldom done in TV then--except for Spumco, I guess)...so in '94 I left WB for feature stuff and I've never looked back. And that's how I got into storyboarding. Do you have an interest? I see you as a visdev artist, for sure and certain. Development exploratory stuff, fooling around having a ball. : )

david gemmill said...

hey pal. sorry i've been sick and busy and still sick. i hope we can get together and draw soon, or maybe go to the archive and watch some terrytoons. i hope you are doing well.

Simon said...

Run Marlo Run! Bang that brush against the posterboard hard! Like hail, babe!

Go!

Go!

GWEELOK said...

Hey, thanks for the kind words. I’m a fan of your blog too, so we definitely should be pals. You’re in luck, cause it doesn’t cost a thang. Thanks again.

Felix Lim said...

Love your violent yet elegant shapes.
Its also quite rare to see a female artist whose art that matches physical beauty.

Daniel said...

Cool picture, why don't you post the rest of your collaborations?

Fabián Fucci said...

Hi there, first time here and I love it! This is a really cool place for colorful art. I liked everything I saw, even if I have no clear idea about what is really going on around. Keep on with this art!

Jenny said...

Hey Marlo~this is for your pal Katie. Wish her many happy returns (to blogging, too)from a total stranger!
