I just realized that I never did post my guest cartoon I did for Tony Piro over at Calamities of Nature.  Don’t be fooled by my schlock.  Tony does great work.  Check him out.

Superfogeys Guest Cartoon

Posted in Guest Cartoon on January 11, 2010 by bearmancartoons

Click the above link to go to Superfogeys. Yours truly was the last of a long list of great guest cartoons. Superfogeys is the webcomic by the talented Brock Heasley about what happens to a group of superheroes and villains who have gotten too old to fight the good fight.  They retire to Valhalla – Home for the Supertired.

I’ll post it here later but check out my submission now and tell Brock how great it was even though it sucked compared to the talent of the other folks who submitted.

Guest Cartoon: Calamities of Nature

Posted in Guest Cartoon with tags , , , , , on December 29, 2009 by bearmancartoons

Head over to Tony Piro’s Calamities of Nature to see my guest cartoon that I did for his contest.  My topic was about 2012 and the end of the Mayan Calendar.

I wasn’t a winner by a long shot but Tony felt shamed into posting my cartoon anyway since I took the time to enter.  🙂

I’ll post it here in a few days.

I don’t know how she found it but Midwest Mom over at hmmm-sweet-splendid-wisdom has found a picture of me and posted it on her site.  Go check it out here.

The Frustrated Cartoonist – At 100

Posted in Guest Cartoon with tags , , , , , , on September 8, 2009 by bearmancartoons

Our final selection is from Nate Fakes.  He draws, might draw, used to draw the Frustrated Cartoonist.  Hell, I don’t know.  You see Nate has hit the big time with Mad Magazine as well and will have a recurring strip going forward.  He swears that doesn’t mean the end of his Frustrated Cartoonist character Jim, but given how he drew him at 100, I think it might be a sign.

The Frustrated Cartoonist is Jim who longs to be like Nate and actually get paid to do his craft.  Yet like all of us frustrated cartoonists, he has to manage a day job to pay the bills.  That and his girlfriend and neighbors seem to cut into actual cartooning time.  Anyone who has ever had a hobby that they eventually wanted to become a career will relate.

So I give you the slow progression of age of Jim.

Aging Jim

So thanks Nate and thanks to all the great cartoonists for helping me out.  I look forward to reading all the comments.

Follow Nate on Twitter so you can keep up with all he is doing.

And follow me on Twitter too.  I should finally be posting again sometime this week.

D. Long – At 100

Posted in Guest Cartoon with tags , , , , , , on September 6, 2009 by bearmancartoons

Our final two guest cartoonists are actual published cartoonists in the ultimate of cartooniness – Mad Magazine.  First up is D. Long (you can see the image of the now released Mad that has his work on his blog).   You actually have to buy the magazine to see what he drew though.  Someone is yelling “damn the capitalists”

Now D is the mastermind behind Edmund Finney’s Quest to Find the Meaning of Life.  I am thinking his website address of eqcomics is short for Edmund’s Quest but it could be that he used to draw cartoons for home audio buffs and didn’t want to lose the URL.

Anyway, D takes Edmund on an ongoing quest that continually gets him in and out of trouble.  Just when you think he is safe…BAM, another tragedy befalls.   Mr Long is quite the character himself and decided to show us what he thinks he will look like at 100. 

100-year-old-me

 I am thinking that his balloon fetish might have taken a turn for the worse.  Thanks D!! 

Follow D. Long via Twitter updates!

Come back in 2 days for our final guest cartoon from the Frustrated Cartoonist!!   You can also keep up with me via Twitter. (just not now, I am busy I told you)

Unbearable Bears – At 100

Posted in Guest Cartoon with tags , , , , , on September 4, 2009 by bearmancartoons

Anyone with “Bear” in their webcomic title has to be outstanding.  And David LaMason must be even better than that because he has “bear” appearing twice in the title.  And this has special meaning because I am the recipient of David’s first Guest Cartoon.

Unbearable Bears is the story of Oskar, a dimwitted but loveable bear, and Bainbride, a headstrong birdbrain (literally he is a bird).  Frequently David himself has been making an appearance so he counts as a character too.  Thus I give you David LaMason at 100.

I know this comment will come out of one of you.  NO, David was never “touched” by Michaels Magic Glove.

Check out David on Twitter

Come back in 2 days for another new guest cartoon from EQ Comics!!   You can also keep up with me via Twitter. (just not now, I am busy I told you)

Spilled Ink – At 100

Posted in Guest Cartoon with tags , , , , on September 2, 2009 by bearmancartoons

Robert Matejcek is the mastermind behind Spilled Ink.  Robert, a semi-reclusive web cartoonist who doesn’t like to leave his apartment.  He has an adoring cat named Dharma (I think he needs another one named Greg) and a patient wife named Annabelle.

Spilled Ink is a semi biographical look and Robert, Annabelle, and Dharma’s life.  Man would it be fun being a nosy neighbor of theirs.  Check out the whole family at Spilled Ink but first check out this great cartoon of Robert and Annabelle at 100.
