Whoooo - don't even attempt to try this at home -- "I Catch Me a Santa". Poor Santa! But where can I get me a Sticky-Tree? Posted last year, on December 20th. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Christmas Smaller

Going all out here for the Christmas Holiday -- Christmas Smaller...if only we could -- it seems Christmas gets bigger and bigger every year in the Buying & Having department & smaller and smaller in the Spirit of Giving. But a hearty "Ho Ho Ho" to all of you, as a certain Fat Man says! And if all of this makes you grumpy, have an eggnog with extra brandy, on me.* CM Evans Cartoons

* My daughter. 7, asked me what is in Eggnog? I said, simple - Eggs and Nogs. What are Nogs? She asked. That is the question, I responded.

Comic News - Grinding on at the Daily Grind

The Daily Grind - Iron Man Challenge continues....grinding on and on and on. Talk about fortitude! I wonder when it will end? I give it at least one more year. Even two. That's a helluva lot of work for 1,120 bucks. But they say a real cartoonist will constantly crank out work, whether they get published or not. Which in my opinion, is true. At least it was for me. Some of my favorites: Bela - YOUNGADVENTUREFRIENDS, Joseph - Say Uncle Comics, Jennie - The Devil's Panties

Look At This & Bottle Houses Galore

Look At This, a pointer blog that I visit every day, has an entry showing a bottle house, looks like in Russia. I've seen two bottle houses in my travels -- one is located in the ghost town of Rhyolite, in Nevada. The other one is in, of all places, Knott's Berry Farm Amusement Park, in Buena Park, CA. See the picture above -- I got it from a funny Swedish website that has information and pictures of the park. As for the house in Rhyolite (still standing, with a new roof), it was built by Tom Kelly in about 1906. Here is a website with info, history and pictures of the "Tom Kelly Bottle House". I hear that it was well used, several generations of kids were raised there. It also has an interesting rock garden/ cement sculpture garden of miniature houses & buildings. While we are at it, here is a website that has links to a whole bunch of bottle houses all over the United States, including what it claims to be the first bottle house, built in Tonopah, Nevada in 1902.

More info on the ghost town of Rhyolite, here. A place worth visiting, if you get out there --plus Death Valley is about an hour away, a must see, too.

Lastly, on a side note: Knott's Berry Farm also has a smallish barrel house, next to Boot Hill. But amazingly, I can't find any good pics of this.

Link Added - ordinary things - Ozge Samanci

Via, I found this cartoon website called ordinary things, by Ozge Samanci, a site that has work that is actually not that ordinary -- not many color cartoon websites take my interest, but I enjoyed this person's technique. Plus he (or she) can draw too, which you see in cartooning less and less of, nowadays. Here are a few more that I liked -- coffee table, masculine, chair, street dog. Links section

Cartoon - Dance Rioters

Watch out for those disaffected drama students -- I was one once...they will stop at nothing & indeed will laugh gleefully when their plan works to shake up the savage discord and massive cacophony of a downtown dance riot! CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - BM - Bubbles n Saws

I drew these sorta shaky & trippy BMs a few weeks ago when I was high on vicodin due in part to my newly busted wrist. Wrist is now healing just fine, with about 5 screws, a plate, some wire, and a big pin inserted. I get the cast off just before xmas. Wish my wrist luck on being back 100%. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - To the Gun Store

Whenever I feel blue, and I don't know what to do, I go down to the Gun Store and buy me up a big gun with lots of attachments on it for scopes, muzzle-breaks, bayonets, tazers, lasers, extra large clips, special combat grips, and stuff like that. Then I go home and watch a war movie and drink. Works every time! CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Orgastic Lines

Todd said that he was talking to a book agent, and when he asked her what she thought of Opium Magazine, she said it was a big literary circle jerk. Actually, to be fair, she said, "Your literary magazine world is one big circle jerk." Well said, you jaded, worldly, agent of books! Just like Politics, Mass-Marketing, Prime-Time Television, and long sections of Western Civilization. Cartoons auf CM Evans

Cartoon - French Import

I always kinda liked Citroëns -- at the same time I know very little about them, other than the Citroën DS19 had this powerful hydraulic suspension allowing the user to raise and lower the whole vehicle depending on road conditions and the kind of ride they wanted. When I worked in SJ, in the parking garage at my work, someone had a DS19 -- but it didn't look like it was in running condition. I think an executive was storing it there. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Beer Baseball

My friend, Erik, ran a newsletter called "Buffalo Chips" for his group of drinking buddies who were loosely affiliated with the name "Buffalos". The Buffalos, in turn, participated in the local bar baseball league. For the newsletter I'd supply Erik with cartoons. I'd show up, he'd hand me a pen and papers, and I would do 10 - 20 cartoons, usually drawing while lying on the floor. This cartoon was one that ran in the "Chips" after a notorious win or loss on the ball field, between gimlets at the top of the eighth and a few chasers before the ninth.CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - One Beer Too Many

A few years back in S.F., when the moon came up, we decided to have a few drinks on the roof of the second story flat. A girl had a few drinks too many, so she stepped off the roof, thinking she was stepping down onto a wooden kitchen awning. But she was confused and she stepped into an air-shaft that was about 10 feet deep -- she fell without a sound. Next thing she knows, she's standing straight up at the bottom the pitch-back shaft with both her legs jammed through the ceiling of the flat below, with a wooden beam 2 inches between her legs. Instead of screaming, we heard her laughing down there in the dark, while we pulled her out before the cops came. That's what I call the "lure of gravity". CM Evans Kartoons

Cartoon - Old Grouch

Hello to anyone out there who bothers to read this lousy blog with any reasonable regularity. I hate you all. As I increase with age, literally!, I like it when the olde timey folks tell younguns what is exactly on their mind, and how they feel about whippersnappers in general. Ah, to be young, and to be yelling! Also, may we all be boiled alive in the soup of our own sauce. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Bad Dinner Party

Theoretically this cannot happen, ever. But watch out. Watch out. Do I have any nutty dinner party stories? Dinner party stories of dinner parties gone horribly and terribly wrong? Scenes involving the eating of dinners that should not have been consumed in the venue of a party with certain people? Indeed I do. But go watch "The Party" with Peter Sellers instead.

Back to Respectability - New Swiss Knife Catalog

Back to respectability with the latest installment to the CM Evans cartoon website. In college, one job I had was that of a doorman for a swank building on Gough Street in S.F. I got along with everyone quite fine, and part of my job at the end of the day was to take out any recycling or trash that the tenants would put for me to take out in the back stairwell. One thing I discovered was the crème de la crème of society gets FABULOUS catalogs. I mean, these 4 color catalogs were gorgeous, selling all sorts of rare and precious things -- like real Louis the 14th end tables, scrimshaw from the 1820s, rare Arabian firearms, Ming Dynasty pottery, famous paintings, and other stuff that usually is in museums. And everything cost at least $5,000.00 -- and that was cheap. So I'd take these catalogs and read them in my $250.00 a month room in the Mission District, and try to figure where I'd put the end tables if I could afford them, and if they would complement warped wooden floors and chipping paint. I suppose they'd have to do, if I got them to show off my Ming Vase and assorted potpourri of Ancient Scrimshaw. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon Plagiarism Over at Wikipedia

I found this to be interesting -- a bit of political cartoon plagiarism over at Wikipedia -- now don't get me wrong...I love Wikipedia. But I hate plagiarizers. I was looking for the defintion of "Satire" and this is what I found as an example. The color version of the cartoon purports to be the original, according to Wikipdeia, "Published 1984 as a poster by Finnreklama Oy, a printer/publisher of Finland." Here is this Finnish publishing website "Finnreklama Oy - Book Maker", located in Sulkava, Finland.

However, the second black and white cartoon is the original, or a copy of the original, drawn by American Pulitzer-Prize winning political cartoonist David Horsey for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer in 1984. I have my copy from the cartoon compilation ReaganComics, published in 1984 by Carew Papritz and Russ Tremayne, Khyber Press. This illustration is on the back cover.

As often happens with plagiarizers and second-handers, the copied version isn't nearly as good at the original artwork, and the plagiarizer feels free to make a series of inferior changes to some of the text and humorous details. Two notable omissions are the knife-shaped island of Cuba "(The Dagger at our Loins)" and the Reagan Portrait -- the copier also seems to be a rotten artist, see the crude looking bird in the compass that replaced Mom with Apple Pie. Amongst various retitling on the map, the plagiarizer wrote "Lake of Our Tribes" subtitle for the Indian Ocean. Is that the best you can do?

Here is a strange strip by a guy/ gal named Bella Whigimill. YOUNG ADVENTURE FRIENDS. The more I can't figure it out, the more it appeals to me on some kind of subtle molecular level. I found Bella (or is it Bill/billisbygosh?) through an ongoing online cartoon competition called The Daily Grind Iron Man Challenge...competitors must update their comic Monday through Friday without fail, or you are eliminated from the pool. Winner gets $1,120. TDGIMC been going since March of last year. I wonder how long it will keep going, and who will win? I'd figure on at least another year.

Cartoon - MY LUCKY HAT

This is, in fact, my lucky hat. I have never had bad luck wearing the lucky hat. Whenever I need good luck, I resort to the wearing of the lucky hat. No, you cannot have my lucky hat. Sorry, there is only one lucky hat. Someday, without doubt, my lucky hat will be on display at the Smithsonian Institution. Or some other August Institution of Science, Arts, Culture,and Learning.

Cartoon - Doggy

I heard a story one time, from an ex-lover of mine -- in college, she was invited over to a date's house for dinner. The date surprised her when he asked her what she wanted for dinner, because he was going to cook her a meal. Imagining something gourmet, she said she liked chicken. When she got to his house, she saw he lived in a dump of an apartment. It also looked like he had just woken up, though it was 5 o'clock in the afternoon. When she asked him how the dinner was going, he pointed to the oven. She opened the oven door, and saw a small whole roasting chicken, raw, sitting on a plate. The oven was not on. As I understand it, that was the extent of that relationship. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Back in the Doghouse

When I was growing up, we had neighbors that had a Rhodesian Ridgeback named "Moose", and he had a huge doghouse. Four kids could fit in it. We didn't stay in it long, cause the thing smelled like dog. Plus Moose decided to come in the doghouse while we were in there, temporarily both trapping us and covering everyone from head-to-foot with slobber. We piled out full of dog fur. CM Evans Cartoons

Happy Birthday to Me

Today is my XX birthday. How old am I? Well, let's see. I know what a rotary-dial phone is. In Junior High my first computer was an Apple II+ (eventally we upgraded it to 512K, with dual floppy drives, which was SMOKING in those days). Speaking of computers, my first video game was Pong. Also, on the Apple, I played Adventure and Zork. Wizardry rocked. Anyone out there know what I'm talking about? CM Evans Cartoons
