Cartoon - Oversized

Oversized. I saw a video on YouTube yesterday called "Gigantic Hail Storm" via Look at This that showed huge hail pummeling a group of nerdy storm chasers somewhere in the Midwest. Amusing at first, when the hail begins, the hailstorm turns relentlessly deadly. It smashed the shit out of their SUV, breaking the back window, a side window, and smashing the hell out of the font window of the vehicle. So I put this here cartoon up, even though it really has nothing to do with the deadly hailstorm. But watch out! Deadly hail storms, and accidents while making giant paper snowflakes could happen to you. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Coin Operated Box

Coin Operated Box. I should write, "Joe sat in the coin-operated cardboard box for a long time, but it didn't do anything." But there it is. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Searching for Pie

I did this all the time when I first got my telescope. Pie in the Sky was one of the first things I wanted to see, after hearing about it all the time growing up when I'd talk to anybody in my family. The general gist was, whenever I was saying something important to me personally, I was told I was being hysterical, dramatic, ranting, unrealistic, irrelevant, over idealistic, i.e. "Pie in the Sky". Ya know, I didn't get discouraged by this lack of recognition, this refusal of insight....hey, it just goes to show you -- everybody likes pie!! Except the Devil. He likes angel food cake. But the Universe is still okay. CM Evans Cartoons

Link Added - Mr. Dan Golden

I added a link to Dan Golden, in the CM Evans Cartoons Links section. Dan is a talented cartoonist whose work will be appearing in the rotating twice weekly online Opium Magazine cartoon lineup, and more of his work will be in the upcoming .print issue of Opium #4.

Comic News - Here is new CM Evans Cartoons Logo

I designed it for the SCCS links page. I like it. Those are huge shoes, not canoes.

Link Added - The Southern California Cartoonists Society

I swear I thought I already had a link to the Southern California Cartoonists Society, I've been a member of the SCCS for about 4 years now. Members of the SCCS include Jim Whiting (the founding member and original president), syndicated award winning cartoonist Greg Evans, and others of all ages. My daughter Phoebe, who is 8, is a member. She joined when she was 6. The SCCS meets once a month in downtown San Diego, and another time in the same month in north county San Diego. The SCCS even puts out a monthly newsletter, called "A Slice of Wry" with updated, cartoons, and news & whatnot. A great bunch of people, I've missed quite a few meetings lately, but I'm making it up by going as much as possible now. Hey, the SCCS even has a store, where you can buy shirts and stuff with their cute mascot. And be sure to check out the SCCS links page too.

Cartoon - Making Fish Stick Mist

Hey I like this one. I think it would be fun to make some fish stick mist. Fish stick mist. Try saying that 10 times fast. When was the last time you had fish sticks? CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - The Hairy Taco of Petaluma, CA

Yeah, I got this hairy taco one day, in Petaluma, CA -- it was back in about 1996 or so. They didn't mean for it to be so hairy. But they should have worn a hair net, they should have, but they didn't. It was delicious. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon Redux - A Good Way to Hide

Some cartoons are amusing because they are restrained, or understated. "A Good Way to Hide" is live over at Opium Magazine, where they have unveiled the cover for .print #4. You can pre-order it as well, if you like. If you pre-order, right now they'll throw in another issue of a previous Opium Magazine or free. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Outside the Cafe

This one is actually pretty funny, it reminds me of growing up in Santa Rosa in the 1980s, and how some people automatically hated you because you bothered to drink coffee while hanging out in a cafe. You see, where I grew up, the concept of cafe life -- sitting around smoking, reading books, magazines, or newspapers while having a cup of joe at the coffee house, was for fags. This was before Starbucks took over 99.99% of all the corner cafes in the world and now it is relatively normal to step inside a establishment selling coffee. CM Evans Cartoons

Blog News - Updates - Introducing "The Forbidden Books"

Just wanted to let you all know, I've updated my links on the blog and I've also created a new separate blog called "The Forbidden Books". This new blog I will be updating with examples from a series of works I did, the first being titled, "What We Talk About As We Fall Asleep At Night." I've been wanting to post some of this media stuff like this for a few years, but never got around to it. Besides being darkly satirical, these works can also be screamingly funny. This is the first time I've published them to any wider audience, whatsoever. I hope to add commentary to each one as we go along. Look for a new example posted every week. The Forbidden Books

Cartoon - Box w/ Horn

Sometimes for a laugh, I dig through my piles of doodles and sketches. I'm constantly drawing, plus I have about 25,000 I've completed, that are just laying around. Like this one. Ain't that the cutest little box with a horn that you ever did see? CM Evans Cartoons

Comic News - BOASAS live @ Opium

Check out the new Steven L. Cloud's Boy On a Stick and Slither cartoon over at Opium Magazine, posted for the weekend, "Free Ride". I love daydreaming too.
