Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Are your illustrations original? Do you make them yourself?
T&P: Yes. All the drawings are original unless otherwise stated. The team
consists of Tipsy (the graphic artist) and Ponggo (the writer / editor) while Ooey, Tipsy’s sister nitpicks on the graphics & presentation from time to time.
2. What are the names of your characters?
T&P: So far there’s:
Tipsy – the pink goo
Ponggo – the blue goo
Ooey – the yellow green goo
Mister Snooze – the mummy living inside the Egyptian sarcophagus (oh..how redundant can this description get? :P)
Porky – the porcupine (a.k.a. Ponggo’s pet who looks like a hedgehog. But for the sake of alliteration & irony, we’re retaining the name Porky 😛 )
Guguri (ググリ) – the Googly ninja
(Hmm…so far, we haven’t posted anything about Porky yet on Tumblr.)
3. Do you have more pictures? Where can I find them?
The complete & chronological posts are on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/pages/googly-gooeys/105946407538?ref=mf)
If the link doesn’t work, try typing in “googly gooeys” on Facebook search.
4. How do you make them?
T: Hmm..How do I answer this? It all started with a bad day last year. I started drawing random nameless figures and ended up poking fun at myself. Ponggo officially named them the Googly Gooeys.
5. Where do you get your ideas?
T&P: They’re mostly stuff that happens to us & the people that surround us—daily mishaps & random musings 🙂
6. Is it just a hobby? How do you manage it?
T&P: It’s pretty much a mini escape from reality. It’s like dancing or singing: You will always have a reason to do it whether you’re happy, sad, angry or depressed.
7. Do you accept requests or suggestions?
T&P: Unfortunately, our current schedules don’t permit us to respond to requests. However, should you have a suggestion, feel free to send it in via Tumblr Ask or firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re rarely able to check the latter though.
Should we create an illustration out of your suggestion one day, we will include your Tumblr site / Facebook account name in the credits portion 🙂
