Cartoon - Before X Happens

I held out for as long as I could -- but I've always lost it way before people thought I should have lost it. CM Evans Cartoons

ShiShi for a Friend

Here ya go.

Cartoon - Normals

It has been a lovely ride -- and amazing ride over these four years and one day. I've repaired my relationship with my family, I'm slowly learning more about who I really am, my limitations, and what I really am capable of -- which is more than I ever imagined. Thanks to you all, for being a part of it. I don't believe in normality, by the way -- I think deep down, fundamentally, we are all unique. That makes Normal a myth. It also means we're all these fabulous self-contained universes reacting to one another. I find this to be the best part of life. Learning from others, and loving them the way they are.

Cartoon - Don't Believe Everything

Here it is -- a cartoon and how I edit it. I know some of you would be interested. The cartoon below -- as I was drawing it, I realized I wanted to change the wording. I was going to scan it, so the extract words go below the drawing.

Changed out two words, cleaned it up.

Might be funnier, or not. I think it makes better sense, though I am barely makings sense with this cartoon. Well, I can fix that by drawing 10,000 more.

2014: A year of Shishi -- Chinese Lion-Dogs -- 3.21.2014

3. 21. 2014

Here is the dog that showed up today -- drawn at a meeting I was at, on a paper towel. These Shishi are veeery interesting -- they scan ok -- but interesting things happen when I try to save them to the hard-drive, or upload them to Facebook, or here. There is a certain amount of resistance! Must be a powerful symbol. Very potent symbol.

My good fortune from this, is your good fortune. Any errors, are due to my fault, and my fault only.

2014: A year of Shishi -- Chinese Lion-Dogs

I was reading a book on Katsushika Hokusai -- one of Japan's most famous artists -- he was renown for the block print. He's probably one of the finest block-printers in the history of art. Even if you don't think you know him, you know him, because his images have been endlessly reproduced. I read starting in 1842 he drew shishi -- Chinese Lion-Dogs  -- one for each day, for a year. Because I have a ceramic shishi -- I decided to do the same. I started on 3.11.14. I'm not feeling unlucky, but why not increase the luck and see what it brings me? Then I can share my good luck with you!

Cartoon - Regional Conflict

Don't laugh -- please. Do you know how hard it is to get a good insurance policy for your armored personnel carriers and light vehicles with comprehensive road assistance and routine maintenance, when you're trying to mobilize them for a regional conflict? I mean, if you lose your coverage at that point, you might as well go cry -- because it will either be prohibitively expensive to replace the same coverage you had before, or you'll only get it through some third-rate insurance exchange that has lousy customer support.

Cartoon - Never Nevermind

I was watching Colombo -- or someone else was watching Colombo in the other room. Then I thought of that line from "Princess' Bride" -- never start a land war in Asia. But of curse, this was reportedly mentioned General Douglas MacArthur to President John F. Kennedy, in 1961.

I figure it does not count if you are from Asia, because lots of people start wars there, and win them all the time.

Cartoon - Thanks You / Do Feel Better

I was going
to post a poem
that was witty
and had
something observant
to say about communication

But I couldn't find
the right poem I had written
in the past

Here is the cartoon -- I
drew it in baby-blue ink,
but then I set it to

I might repost as

I like color

CM Evans Cartoons


And for anyone
who has been feeling blue

I do hope you feel

Cartoon - TANK ON TANK!!!

It was going to ROCK!!! TANK verses TANK!! NO RULES!!! TANK THROWDOWN!!! GET IN YOUR TANK AND FIGHT!!! Then we're on a giant golf course I guess. Tank one falls into Hole #14. Handicap/ Par 2/4. "Left-center of the fairway is the ideal tee shot to avoid the trees guarding the approach from the right." From the giant brochure we found nearby that we though was a house. CM Evans Cartoons

Cartoon - BM 2 fer Monday

I have these colored pens, and I draw with them, but other people around here draw with the pens too -- and so what happens is I start a cartoon, and the pen runs out. Undeterred, I keep drawing the cartoon with a totally different color, and I imagine if anyone studies my artwork when I'm dead, they'll think I changed colors because of some deeply symbolic meaning. What I mean is, you're too kind to come by and look at my work, and I love you.

CM Evans Cartoons

Have a nice day.

Cartoon - In Love with the World

Oh here we go World -- the minute I've sworn to resolving to harden my heart and never love you again -- then you sneak up on me, with all the happiness and love I can see in you, and I'm in love with you more than ever. CM Evans Cartoons
