So I went back to Kenosha this year for the Kenosha Festival Of Cartooning!
I won’t try to write up all the excellent coolness that goes on in Kenosha during that fest. I will, instead, send you off to Mike Peterson’s ‘Comic Strip Of The Day’ blog (CLICK HERE), so you can get a complete sense of the whole thing. Mike does a man’s work on his blog, and Hubris has been on there- you guys remember?
Kenosha (the Fest, of course, and the town as well) is wonderful. And things like it should happen in a lot of cities around the country (and the world) If you’re lucky enough to have such a thing in your city (Not many do. There’s TOONFEST of course… and… well…), you have my admiration and envy. If not, try to make it next year, willya?
You all know The Oatmeal, right? Not The Onion, but The Oatmeal. Anyhow, it has funny cartoons in it, and this is one of them. if you CLICK HERE you can read an excerpt from a WHOLE BOOK of outdoorishness in cartooning. Looks good to me!
Here’s a neat article for anyone who remembers skating in their youth- even if your youth was long ago or recently. The changes come and go, and somehow we attach some of our memories to some of the oddest things. CLICK HERE to see the whole thing:
More and more, I catch sight of people decorating with Skateboards. I saw, in the background during a TV interview the other day, a couple of really nice, carved decks. I remember the woodworked skate decks. For the life of me, I can’t remember who it was being interviewed.
Anyhow, my buddy Craig decorates with skate decks. Reg’lar ones that aren’t all carved and stuff.
Here’s a photo he sent to show you:
Nice, right? Well, at the moment, I have a woodburned deck with Matt Smith as Dr. Who on it. Anyone wanna decorate your walls?
