Bearman @ 100

Posted in BearToons on June 30, 2009 by bearmancartoons

Illustrator Phil McAndrew posted something at LiveJournal where he asked readers to draw what they would look like at 100. Check at all the great entries here by scrolling through the comments section.

I missed the contest but thought I would take a stab at what I will look like then (hopefully).

I figure I will be my same sarcastic/practical joker self, but people will just say I am old so I won’t get in trouble for it anymore.

Bearman Cartoon: Elvis Jackson

Posted in BearToons with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 29, 2009 by bearmancartoons

It must be tough being an Elvis Impersonator these days. People who were alive when Elvis was are becoming older and now with the untimely death of Michael Jackson, you will have all his impersonators cashing in. Them along with people hawking t-shirts and other unlicensed crap (as well as the occassional editorial cartoonist taking advantage of the situation).

So my three predictions:

1. Michael Jackson Impersonators will be getting alot of work.
2. Debbie Rowe will come out and say Michael is NOT the biological father of his children in her attempt to get custody (or at least more money)
3. Someone will link prediction 2 with Billy Jean (ie. The kids not my son) in either song or late night joke form.

With only two days left in the Charity Challenge it is time to put up or shut up. Click the image below for all the details. But for the next two days only the next 5 people who don’t already have me on their blog roll, I will donate $20 instead of just $10 if you add me. Make sure to say so in the comment section if you do.

Sorry haven’t posted in the past few days…have something in mind but was at the Special Olympics. Very rewarding volunteer activity if you have not ever done it.

Bearman Cartoon: Michael Jackson & Farrah Fawcett

Posted in BearToons with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 25, 2009 by bearmancartoons

Most of you know I tend not to take shortcuts and put real images in my cartoons…yet drawing these iconic posters would not have created the impact I wanted.

I also struggled with how to caption this. In the end I went with just the title “Lost Youth”. I’ll leave it up to you to decide if it refers to losing two icons too young or the guy in the cartoon is lamenting his own lost youth.

I find it strange though that as we lose the stars of our own youth that it does reinforce you don’t get any younger. I just wonder when I will turn into my parents whereby the first thing I go to in the paper is the obituary section to see if anyone I know has passed away.

Added another entry to Comic Strip Improv. This weeks theme was to draw a cartoon based on “Artificial Intelligence” So of course I thought of artificial stupidity to come up with my toon. I HAATTTE those automated voice answering services that send you through a neverending loop of crap to find the person you need.

Check out all the entries through the week here.

Bearman Cartoon: Jon and Kate Divorce

Posted in BearToons with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 23, 2009 by bearmancartoons

I have said before how much we love to build up the lowly, the underprivileged, or those who’s story touches our heart. But the minute they reach the point where they have something we don’t, it’s time to jump on the hate bandwagon.

Now in the case of Jon and Kate Gosselin, I think some of the recent stuff was brought on by themselves. In their attempt to show normalcy on the show, it only fueled the paparazzi rigor to get the real story. Had they announced their separation several months ago, I am not sure they would have had all the media hounds that they have as of late.

So I bring you in honor of their impending divorce proceedings the new editorial cartoon showing TLC’s new show while Jon and Kate plus Eight (the eight being the kids) is on a hiatus.
