That's right, amigos and amigas... HOT MEXICAN LOVE COMICS #8 is out there and ready for your dineros! It features a story in rhyme that is - for the third time - written by my lovely wife Leigh and illustrated in my "anti-slick" style.
This particular story brings our "water trilogy" (i.e. three stories about the unique properties of Mexican water) to a bombastic, zombie-filled conclusion.
Need a taste? Here's yer taste:

Now if that's not enough to get your PayPal or credit card jamming on over to the HMLC web site and ordering a hundred copies then I just can't help you. Oh wait - yeah I can... here's the link:

I know it's been torture since the last edition of HOT MEXICAN LOVE COMICS came out in which Leigh and I did our first comic-strip collaboration ("Don't Drink the Water: The Ballad of Jerry Montezuma") - but rest easy, true believers, for your agonizing wait is OVER - HOT MEXICAN LOVE COMICS 2007 is HERE and ready to exchange your cold-hard-cash for a big whopping book full of laughs, courtesy of animation's most under-rated talent!
This go-round Leigh spins another agua-themed yarn in rhyme called "Something in the Water" with illustrations by yours truly.
Here's a tease:

If you can't make it to the Comic-Con, be sure to stop by HERE and order it straight from the source!

THE TANTRUM - a film by John Fountain

This was my first film and a pilot for Nickelodeon. I produced it, wrote it, directed it, designed it, storyboarded it and voiced the main character myself.
Even though it's a few years old and I've gone on to write, direct and storyboard lots of other shows (like The Fairly Oddparents, My Life as a Teenage Robot and Yin Yang Yo!), this film still holds up as a good example of my overall storytelling style. Enjoy!

What's that, you say? Still haven't found that perfect holiday gift for that hard-to-please friend, relative, or blood-enemy?
Then you, my dear reader, are in bucketloads of luck...
'BIRTHDAY WISHES' -  collaborative effort between me and my wife is now available in hardcover form from Visikids publishing on AMAZON.COM!


'Birthday Wishes' is a story told entirely in rhyme about about twins who take 'sibling rivalry' to a whole new level when they discover that every year their birthday wishes actually come true. As we all know, siblings are prone to wicked pranks, and thus begins their 'wishing war' as they induce all manner of horrors on one another whenever their birthday comes around.
