I just traded a bunch of barter for the dopest sloth cartoon you have ever seen. Check it out:


Sloth Cartoon


Here’s the backstory: I was at a protest against Hot Air Balloons and I met a cool dude named Daniel Cardenas who is also a hard-core anti-digeridible guy in the forefoot of “heated inflatable” activism.


It turns out he is also a digital cartoonist. I saw some of his stuff and was literally blown away. It’s like Watership Down meets Bobby McFerrin. I just said to myself, “Nick, get this guy to make WonderGlen a cartoon demo, now, or somebody else is going to snap this guy up.”


I just offered him what I could at the time to do it, and he said yes. We can totally sign this guy to do more.

Awesome. Edgy. Powerful. Let’s make it a show.

Cuuute and animal rightsy. Why were you protesting Hot Air Balloons?


Nick Carcallo Nick Carcallo at 11:40AM

Ever heard of Global warming? They heat up air to make those balloons work.

Duh, I knew that

Too communist to get my skivootses wet, but I think we can sell this to the new generation of cry-babies. I want to have some meeting to discuss.

I’ll admit it sure is a dopey sloth. What did you give this person in exchange for the work-for-hire?


Nick Carcallo Nick Carcallo at 12:10PM

It wasn’t cheap. I had like $500 of Halloween candy in my car from when I was prepping for Spooktronic. It was that plus an hour of body/energy work, so like $1,000 worth of stuff?


Pieter Voorhees Pieter Voorhees at 12:14PM

Do we control this cartoons now?


Nick Carcallo Nick Carcallo at 12:16PM

Yeah, I think so…


Pieter Voorhees Pieter Voorhees at 12:18PM

Let’s inject some money into this project. Have slothman animate some more installations for us to sell.
