Glenn gives Annie a drawing she likes, winning over her heart. Annie spends the rest of the day trying to coax Glenn into romancing her. Unfortunately for her, all Glenn wants to do is draw.

While it's loading, you can read character bios and look at a drawing I did of them. Once loaded, you can either watch the entire animation (5 minutes long) or select a scene to start from, as usual. This is a LOT more light hearted and cutesy than most of the stuff I've done in the past. It's also very music-driven. Keep these things in mind when watching. I also hid a scrapbook in there, SEE IF YOU CAN FIND IT. Well, it isn't THAT hard to find, but it isn't in an obvious place.

EDIT: I said the second part would be done soon, but as anyone can see, it isn't done yet. Hang tight, it's coming.

Everything in this animation, including writing, directing, animation, music, and all the male voices are done by me. Annie's voice is supplied by Rina-Chan.

Hope you enjoy, and feel free to leave a review! I read them all.

Loved it.

Ha, women and their weirding ways. Your drawing style is solid, with a pleasingly rough undertone. Plot and direction was simple and a bit orthodox, but well-executed.
I liked it all in general (simple is often best), the dialogue and body language of the characters in particular. I'll have my one-eyed granny keep an eye out for a sequel from ya (she likes having something to do).
One last thing, is this merely a hobby or do you hope to turn this into a livelihood? Either way, you put real heart into your submissions, which makes them so fun to watch I think. Love your work, keep it up.

Bobert-Rob responds:

Well thanks, man, I appreciate you watching. Yeah, at the moment it's just a hobby. I have this hope that someday I'll be good enough to make a living at it, but that day will probably never come. Newgrounds has given me a little taste of it and that's enough for now, I guess. And yes, the sequel... I really need to finish it. Thanks again for watching, glad you enjoyed!

You, my friend...

...are a genius.
I love your artwork and your stories are absolutely amazing.
I nevever thought you'd be able to pull a story like this off, but you have proven me wrong...
And let me tell you...
I've never been happier to be wrong in my life.

Awesome flash. Great Job!!


Bobert-Rob responds:

Well thanks, man, glad you liked it so. I really need to finish this one, it's been driving me crazy that it's not done yet. It'll be here soon enough, though, thanks for watching!

absolutley the best,

it is amazing i got one question does "glenn" or what's his name have ADD? it still doesnt stand a chance to siblings whens dog daze of boredome 2 coming out???
keep up the qood work!

Bobert-Rob responds:

Meh, I don't believe he does, but I'm no doctor. He's just too focused on his art to notice much of anything else, I'd say.
And the second Spike episode will be episode 7, so it won't see the light of day for awhile. At least next year, I'd say, summerish if all goes as planned.
Anyway, yes, I'm glad you enjoyed it, part 2 will hopefully be coming soon!

Poor sun...

I find the basic character interactions always reminding me of "The Sims". Except, this is better because you can actually take an educated guess at what they're saying. I can't wait until The Heart and the Hand 2, and I hope the sun actually makes an appearance, that allows the other characters to notice. Keep animating!

OMG, he made it in! (the crayon). Waiting for the rest. Oh, and a side note: is this based on personal experience...?

Bobert-Rob responds:

Based on a daydream I had back in college, actually. I liked the story enough that I jotted the idea down, refining vague points in the story until I had the basic idea, later turning this into a script that I animated to.... well, one that I'm still animating. It'll be done eventually. Can't rush these things you know. Glad you liked it, Vod!
