News - Opium Magazine is on KQED Public Radio in SF

Opium Magazine, the online & offline literary magazine I edit cartoons for, is being featured on The Writers' Block, part of KQED Public Radio in San Francisco. They're running selections from Opium Magazine's 250-word Bookmark Contest. Hey -- and don't forget -- it isn't too late to submit entries for Opium Magazine's Shya Scanlon 7 Line Contest, the winner (and some runner-ups) being published in the next Opium Magazine .print edition, Opium7. If you win the contest, you get $1,000. Also, mentioning print...Opium6 just came off the presses -- Go Green! (But Save Me First). Here are some sneak peeks (via Opium's graphic designer, designer & overall Renaissance Man, Mr. David Barringer) at the contents of Opium6. Note who did a cartoon. I have a few in there, along with John Callahan. I can hardly wait to get my hands on a copy, it looks fun. Way to go Todd!

Cartoon - Divine

Ha ha ha. I did a whole series of these cartoons, with the King and his hapless portrait artist. What numerous wonderful one-sided exchanges are possible. It boggles my mind. In one of these gags, all the King says, is, "Don't go overboard." Do you think Goya or Krock had to soldier on stoically, that way? I bet they did. I'm surprised Goya got away with the eminently unflattering "The Family of Charles IV" -- the figures appearing, quite adequately described by Théophile Gautier, as "...the corner baker and his wife after winning the lottery."

Cartoon - Smash Hit

Did I tell you that? My fingers were great! They did an adaptation of Gilbert & Sullivan's HMS Pinafore, with some disco dancing and electronic lighting. It was very well received, and now they may go and do a musical comedic version of Shakespeare's Henry IV, with fire dancing and clever stage magic. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Sid Dodge

Sid dodges the low flying UFO. Do we need to be warned against this kind of thing? YES!! But let us first have several beers, a few shots of gin, one or two shots of cheap vodka, a menthol cigarette, and pizza delivered in the nick of time. If you don't know what I mean, just re-read this and follow it like a recipe. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon -- TOO CLOSE

Stay away from my fricken' food, or this will happen to you, I swear. Go ahead, try -- just try to snag some of my grub. Go on! Get your own damn foodies. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Presidential

Hey, don't turn your back on a presidential candidate. How many unexplained disappearances can be blamed on that? And if they do become president, hopefully you don't know them at all. Or have to be around them. CM Evans Cartoons
