Title: Achtoon Baby - Fall 2013
Post by: jw on November 27, 2013, 07:02:11 AM
Kelly,  that was sooooo funny.  I loved reading the facebook shenanigans of U2.  This is one of the funniest Achtoon Baby you've done.  Fantastic job.   Thank you so much!

Aww, you're welcome! This one was surprisingly tricky to put together. All the good fake Facebook programs are for Macs, not PCs, so I had to limp along with a just-okay program and do a LOT of cutting and pasting to get it to look right. Anyway, glad you liked it! My husband Jeff helped me with a few of the funnier bits.  :)

I haven't laughed this hard at an Achtoon Baby in a while... I loved it!

I figured it took you a while.  I was surprised at how many pages there were.  It was so detailed and thorough.  Still, it ended too soon for me.  You're such a talented and creative artist.  Thank you for sharing your time with us.

Yeah, would you believe this was a 14 hour job, not counting the thinking-about-it stage? Brutal. But ultimately very satisfying. I figure I can always do a sequel, or maybe put them on Twitter/Tumblr/Pinterest. :D

I agree, it was hysterical!  You really out did yourself with this one Kelly!  Most enjoyable!

Had me breaking up in laughter... especially the whole 'Bono trying to share a video' thing. Too good!

Winter 2014 is here, and it's even more hilarious than fall's!

I preferred the fall cartoon, probably because I'm on Facebook but I've never been on Twitter, but both were really funny!

GO DIRECTLY TO STUDIO. Too bad they seemed so unhappy to be there! :D

If I had a bunch of U2-loving friends who lived near me, we should get together and play Bonopoly sometime. I would seriously use this board game. Great job, Kelly!

"Community Chest" and "Pants" were pretty great too. :D

Thanks a lot! I wanted it to be a functional game that people might actually use--although I didn't bother with the deed cards, and the cards have no real consequences. :)

Hm, I suppose it's up to me (and anyone who wants to play!) to think up the rest... :) I love Monopoly by itself! It's the game that goes on forever.

I spent untold hours playing Monopoly with my sister. We pretended it was a city of crime, so we never paid taxes, and there were a lot of under-the-table dealings. :)
