Cartoon - Depressed Star Wars

I've been listening to a lot of French Café music from the 1950s on an old iPod I just found. I think about things like this, simultaneously. Who does not get depressed when they read about the results of researching depressed people -- especially when the results indicate that it is more depressing than previously thought? And everybody knows the 'unshielded thermal exhaust port' is uncovered on the Death Star, and open to the sky, without any overhanging why didn't the Rebels just bomb it from space? Or if bombs couldn't be used, just charge directly down FROM space over the exhaust port, rather than going down a skinny equatorial trench where you have no room to maneuver and can be shot at and ambushed from behind? And, never mind! CM Evans Cartoons

Non Cartoon - Random Drawings from the Files

I have some deep files, and I've been going through boxes that were inaccessible for a few years, just come to light, so here are some drawings of the non-cartoon variety. I have an interest in the mechanics, or methods, of 'auto-generation' of symbols and language. I've played also with random letter generation, via matrix and diagrams. Also, I've always loved maps, and I was always making new maps of worlds and places to discover.

Map from an adventure story/ plot I was fooling around with in the late 1980s, or early 1990s.

Cartoon - BigLegs

Two cartoons in one day? Only if you ask me out on a date. No? I was just kidding. JUST KISSING! What? I didn't say anything. No, not what you thought I said. Asking you out on a date? Why, thanks but no. What is your sign? Leo? Cancers don't complement Leo. Because? I don't know. I'm shy.

Cartoon - BM Hobbit Farewell

Most of the time is really easy for me to post text with a cartoon I'm putting up here, and today was going to be one of those days where the words just effortlessly flowed off my fingertips, to the keyboard. The post would be witty, not to snide, nor completely off the wall. You'd smile, roll your eyes, or laugh, when you read the post I was going to write. You might have even shared it with a friend. But this did not happen today. I screwed it up. So blah blah blah. My bike tire has a flat. CM EVANS CARTOONS

Cartoon - Trio Shoe Store

I wonder if I go to the Succotash Justice Law Center, the Sewing Marine Company, and the Cupcake Insurance Group, I'll be able to eat a legal meal, get my torn pants fixed with nautical strength thread, and insure my pound cake -- all in on afternoon? Well, at least I don't have to wait for 'the other shoe to drop'. I have an extra one! CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Old Fashioned

Yep, in the 'olden days', when ya had a hankerin'* for some gal or guy, and phones didn't exist, and electricity was mysterious, you'd sit down and write them a post card. But post cards were invented after phones, though, so never mind. I was thinking about a telegram. No I wasn't.

Cartoon - Roll Over, Erwin Schrödinger -- Your Cat Story is Stupid

"Today’s Google Doodle celebrates the life of Austrian physicist and Nobel Prize winner Erwin Schrödinger (August 12, 1887 — January 4, 1961), a founder of quantum physics who used cats to explain things long before Internet cat videos became cool."

Nice! And here is mine. Happy 147th birthday, Schrödinger, or 233rd birthday -- or however vastly old you'd be, if it was possible you'd be alive today. Or even want to be alive today. Which always confused me, on how they keep celebrating birthdays of certain celebrities and famous people, as if they'd still be alive now.

And I also wondered how long you'd realistically be able leave any normal cat in a box, before you'd basically know the cat was going to be dead, no matter what simultaneous state it theoretically be in. You know what I mean? Cats fuck with everything. You can't blame the cat.

Not to be overly critical, but I think Schrödinger's cat story is stupid, and it always was stupid. But professors have been telling it for so long to students, and expecting them to know it, we pretend it makes sense. Why not a baby with a flamethrower, or a walrus with a hand-grenade?

Well, nevermind! Drink up! Three cheers to Erwin Schrödinger! Nobel Prize winner Erwin Schrödinger, alive! Yes! Nobel Prize winner Erwin Schrödinger, dead! I heard he was master of Kung-Fu too. Too bad he didn't give us some snappy Kung-Fu analogies.

Cartoon - Denmark

I have a friend staying in the city of Aalborg, and being jet-lagged, he has some questions about Denmark. Knowing nothing about Denmark I tried to help him out, about some of the countries' customs, building regulations, and geological situation. He said that there are many modern Danish brick buildings, and I told him that these were 'mock' brick Danish buildings -- because bricks are illegal in Denmark. Bricks are prohibited, because a brick might fall on someone and they'd get hurt. He remarked that the city is very flat, and I told him Aalborg sold most of its hills to San Francisco, during the gold rush in California. Those where the days! I think he's asleep now. I'm glad to be of service. I guess, in a pinch, when someone is jet-lagged, I can be an expert on just about anything. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - Funny Cartoon

Here it is -- the perfect apology message for all of you who innocently go on a blind date and get drunk, or you drink too much, and it isn't anyone's fault specifically (or the bartender's) -- and a bunch of things go down, but you manage to get home with the date anyways, and you get lost in the house and can't find a way out while some small dogs chase you unmercifully around, while some stuff gets broken and you pee in a small bathroom that is full of shoes and dresses.

Shout out to my buddies from Macedonia. Latvia -- you too -- you're amazing. If there is a pretty girl in Latvia, and you like my work, let's go out.

Bar Sketch

This is what a bar looks like at about 2.00 AM -- when most people there are drunk and rotating around in circles in the center of the room, or else making out furiously in the corners & under tables.

At "The Pikey".
