Cartoon - Camp WhoWho

When I was a little kid, I was able to go to a summer camp in Northern California for a bunch of years -- we slept out under the stars and did the nature thing. Crafts, hiking, backpacking, it was the best. Later, when I was in High School, I returned as a counselor at the same camp, and I did that for many summers as well. I think I had more fun being a counselor, than being a camper, because I felt like I was making a big difference in some of those kid's lives. And in some cases, I did make a big impression. Helping others, focusing on others needs, saved me from myself. You get out of your own head & set of judgments and preconceptions by helping others, and I find that it ain't too bad.

Cartoon - Falling

Is this possible? I'm sure it has happened to someone. The insanity is made even funnier (in my opinion), because the surreal image is repeated above and below. The cartoon originally started out as an 'orphaned sketch' -- pictures I draw where there is no caption that readily comes to mind. I save these routinely, and they circulate through my piles of papers for years, until some of them get a tagline. If you rotate the cartoon, you will see this gag started out as a guy laying under a table, next to a chair. I flipped the drawing, saw him 'falling' and then added another table and chair, for the caption. And now I've told most of you way more than you ever wanted to know about how a cartoon turns out & the creative method. Anyways, Crazy Jim in Laguna Beach likes it. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - What My Hammer is Thinking

How are ya? I don't normally inquire what inanimate objects are thinking, nor should you -- but in any case, my hammer and I have learned something valuable about caring about the things that happen in this world. The two-tone color scheme remains uncorrected, as well as the vertical orientation, because my scanner and retouching program need to work somehow together, in ways I expected, that appear to be no longer relevant. Which reminds me of a joke I heard recently that bears no relation to anything contained here: suffice to say, it was about Spain, the 1450s, religion, England, and shipping. CM Evans Cartoons

CM Evans Cartoons - More Posts to Follow

Hello there, I was out of town and sometimes it feels like my scanner is connected to my computer by a cable that stretches to Mars and back -- so pardon the lack of updates. I know I'd go completely fucking bonkers if I had to look at "Tootsie Eggs", since July 14. I have many cartoons, and now that I'm back in front of my computer, look for updates again on a regular basis. Mom, Dad, Kettleman City, Wasco, Pozo, Napa, San Jose, 6 AM, Interstate 5, and the Moon over Fields in the Imperial Valley all send their regards. CM Evans Cartoons
