Back in 2009, I made a quickie comic. A comic about a guy who gets TG'd into a Genie who looks very similar to the TV show Jeannie. I called it, "I Dream of a Jeanie Bottle". It was a quickly made comic, and when done was published it on DA

I Dream of a Jeanie Bottle by CDRudd
It was very well received, so I decided to make another, then another I Dream of a Jeanie Bottle 2 by CDRudd, and another I Dream of a Jeanie Bottle - 3 by CDRudd... Soon without ever planning on it, "I Dream of a Jeanie bottle" became another webcomic, moving from being published on DA to it's own website (Jeaniebottle.com, and later JBcomic.com).

Since then we've added, 3 Genies to the cast, crossovers with other classic TV show themes, over 300 comics, a spin off comic series and an awesome fan base.

But if you go back to the first comic. Jean's look evolve, but at the same time, when you compare side by side with Barbara Eden's Jeannie. Jean was never quite the same.

Recently a fan in Australia attending a local convention, offered to have Barbara Eden to sign a piece. I decided to make a Barbara Eden worthy pic that would show the classic TV Jeannie (in my art style), vs the webcomic Jean. So you could see the differences and the fact Jeannie and Jean appearances are alike, but also so so different.

I hope Barbara Eden likes it.

You're welcome. When I first heard about your comics among the IDOJ fandom, I thought it would be of no consequence, but it is actually good writing.

Glad you like the comic.
I try to make it interesting, similar,  yet different.

Which IDOJ Fandom did you see the comic on?

BTW, in case of don't know, I'm Intern Robert, so I also have a vested interest. :)

I was one in a long line so my exposure was maybe 30 seconds.

I'm guessing after signing so many items it's routine, there was a moment of confusion as she saw Jean first, then there was a "oh there I am" moment.

I did make sure to thank her for her years of entertainment which made her smile.

Heh, thanks for the write-up. I'm glad she was able to recognize herself in CD's Style.

Oh god, when I saw someone say "tribute" I thought that meant she had died!

Descriptions clear up so much.
