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

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
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.

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.

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

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

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

I have a cartoon live at Opium Magazine today, "Death's Kid Brother". Opium also is running various scintillating and pithy 7 line stories from the Shya Scanlon Seven Line Story Contest -- a winner and finalists have been announced, but Opium got so many varied and interesting 7 line stories they're running a series of them. I hope you go check them out.

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
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
