Cartoon - Even More More Nonsense: Just Got Back



I could think up possible quantum side effects and entertaining paradoxes resulting due to inter-dimensional travel, all day long. I think my brain is just this.

Cartoon - A Little More Nonsense: Putting God Behind the Wheel

Do you think if it was possible to put your concept of the Almighty behind the wheel of your vehicle, that God would obey all the rules of the 2014 California State Vehicle Code?  I'd say, no. But I've heard people claiming they do this all the time, getting their concept of God to drive them around. And quite contentedly. So some of those bad drivers out there, must be people being driven around by God! There you go. I feel better. Next time someone cuts me off, or blows a stop sign, I'll yell out at the other car -- "GOD!!" CM Evans Cartoon

Cartoon - More Nonsense

 


Now I'm back to making perfect sense. And by the way, injecting quantum theories into everyday life: that person who looks suspiciously like you, tailgating you mercilessly on the freeway, could be you on vacation from a parallel universe. We could be meeting versions of ourselves all the time, and we don't even know it, mutually. With this in mind, I recommend being kind to strangers, and especially annoying ones. The stranger you are nice to, could be the You neither of you recognized. Everybody have a great day. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - La la la laaah lah

Hello my darling. Aside from hearing about DAT passing away, how have you been? I hope you are doing good. I know you have a lot of decisions to make, and it seems like nobody is paying attention and it doesn't matter -- but it does matter what you decide to do, and it is important.

When I don't know what to do, I draw a funny little picture that makes no sense on purpose -- and if it still does not make sense when I'm done, well, it makes no sense. But sometimes I go about my business on purpose to make no sense, because I'm always going about my business trying to make sense from the outright and most of the time it does not make sense.

I figure, if sense makes no sense, give nonsense a chance. I sing and smile much more now, and everyone around me is happier and they want to know what my secret to happiness is.

Shhh! Don't tell them! CM Evans Cartoons

ILLUSTRATOR

1954 – March 24, 2014

 I'm sad to report that David A. Trampier passed away, on Mach 24, 2014.

As the illustrator DAT, he created some of the most compelling and iconic images in early AD&D history -- may of which are still poignantly remembered today by thumping nerds everywhere. Besides his image contribution to the game, he is one of my all-time favorite illustrators, regardless.

Not all great artists get the recognition they deserve, and some of them strenuously avoid it. Thank you for the dreams, and for "Emirikol the Chaotic".

Cartoon - Pointless



When I was little, I dreamed of flying like it was magic, and riding dinosaurs. Now that I'm older, I dream of being able to admit how I feel when I'm uncomfortable and I should be open to the unattractive feelings. But I don't know if I'll even be able to be readily frank and transparent. I sure do encourage frankness, honesty, and transparency in others. You go through certain situations like a meat grinder, emotionally, and it changes you, I guess. But the willingness to get honest and be open won't go away, with me. That is good, too.
