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.

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.

Bearman Cartoon: 2012 and the End of Days AGAIN

Posted in BearToons with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 3, 2009 by bearmancartoons

Daryl Cagle has coined the term “Yahtzee” to refer to when 5 or more editorial cartoonists do the same gag. One he has ragged on in the past is using the “I’m with stupid” shirts on a cartoon. I have no idea who he is referring to..he he. In honor of that, I like to coin my own new phrase “Blue Ribbon.” When a cartoonist is the first to latch onto a new topic.

I did a 20 second search of google and haven’t found anything poking fun at the next set of conspiracy theory doomsday predictors – 2012. I saw the movie trailer this past week and thought it was well done. Then I made a trip to the bookstore and noticed all the books on the subject (even one that is a How To Survive 2012 book).

The basic gist is that there is a belief that because the Mayan calendar ends in December of 2012 that somehow they predicted the end of the world. One theory is that we will have a major catastrophe caused by the shifting of the North and South poles. I have even heard Nostradamus’ name thrown out. Didn’t he predict the end of days before during the turn of the century…didn’t come true. Sadly I think this will become worse than Y2K.

So if you see a 2012 editorial cartoon online somewhere that was published before mine, let me know and I’ll gladly hand over my Blue Ribbon.
