not long ago i posted a link here to some really great art by a cartoonist named milton stein. milt worked in the east coast animation and comic book industry from the 40's 'til the 70's. he was a tremendous talent, but fame and fortune was never his. milton stein committed suicide in 1977.
nobody here could be bothered to follow the links and check out this man's incredible work.
Never assume. How do you know nobody here could be bothered to follow the links and check out this man's incredible work?
If you want to ramble about this stuff, I encourage you to start your own blog--that's just what they're for! ... you've obviously got an agenda here, Eeteed, an agenda I think you have a right to promote. Step up to the soapbox, Eeteed, and sign up for your own blog! It's free of charge!
That's what I was gonna say!
The color treatment in your paintings reminds me a bit of Philip Burke's work in Rolling Stone. Unless you hate his stuff, then it totally doesn't remind me of that at all.
I don't find that offensive at all. Thanks! Hell, I even like Leroy Neiman, the man they all love to hate! I don't care for the subject matter (usually sports) but I always liked the paintings.
These last two (Dracula and Conan paintings) are getting kind of wild and wooley. That's not necessarily bad--but I also kind of dug when you were letting the numbers show through.
I like the numbers too. But when the big brushy strokes take control I don't want to get "careful" and ruin the moment.
Every time I look at your blog header, the way you have the colors inverted on your caricature, it looks like a delicious shrimp! Especially with the "food safe" background color.
Funny you should say that. I am DYING to change that header because when I see it out of the corner of my eye, I see that damn Speilberg logo thing of E.T biking across the full moon! I'm changing it as soon as I find the time!
Uhh, Pumpie, I made the mistake of starting that story about the unwed mothers.
Now I must know more.
How can I read it???
And of course, I'd love to read the fat story.
I shall give you the magazine!
Did you have the one of Gorgo?
Now that I'm well into my second childhood, I'm constatnly searching for all of the crap that I destroyed during the first one.
I have never seen the Gorgo. I will give you extra Creature!
Why am I not surprised when police detain people?
You have a very twisted view of the world. You are a bitter intellectual suffering under the mass hysteria that has gripped Our Great Nation. You ate too many pickled tomatos in your life.
Why is Mark Martin funnier than Steve Bissette?
Bissette is also too convinced that he has The Answer. His problem is aggravated by a REFUSAL to eat many foods. Proper nutrition and a balanced worldview is important. Moderation, people! Don't swing too far left, nor too far right.
government = money + power.
the type of people who are attracted to money + power = evil.
all governments are evil. always were. always will be.
basically, anyone who has MORE than you is evil.
Sounds crazy for eeTeeD to just blurt it out like that. But sadly, I know a LOT of people who feel this way.
Spread the word --
Jay Stephens, targeted by the Department of Homeland Security -- does this suffice to wake up fellow cartoonists, or do we need more?
Alas, I remain absolutely reprehensible. I am blithe like Mr. Stephens himself.
Red tape runs amok and people get snared in it. I have sent Bissette examples of far more "gestapo-like" tactics from America's past.
Storming a religious nut's compound and killing all inside scares me more than some red tape nonsense at an airport. If that's dirty pool using a Clinton era comparison, I'll use a Bush era comparison. Sucking up to Mexico and refusing to crack down on the serious illegal alien problem scares me more than some overzealous mall cop picking on Jay Stephens.
I don't see a conspiracy of silence if the media does not jump on this. I wouldn't expect them to run a story about Jay Stephens any more than one about published author Hemlockman, or TMNT artist Eric Talbot. TMNT creator Eastman MAY approach the level of celebrity that would give the media a boner.
"They" have not come for my neighbor. That sounds like one of John Edwards' bumper stickers.
So please support Jay Stephens, and let us all pray that Bush doesn't cause any more serious damage to this country and our Constitution before the end of his term. No matter who follows Bush, they'll be mostly cleaning up after his mess, and oh what a mess it is. We've got an intractable war that is now undeniably our new Vietnam, the Patriot act, No Child Left Behind, possibly the most wrong-headed approach to education yet, oh hell. You don't REALLY like this guy, do you Mark?
I've seen worse. I don't like politicians in general, but I've seen slimier examples than Bush.
Rather than tearing your hair out over the most dangerous man on earth (that's actually what Bissette called Cheney, so I'm not quoting Jed exactly, but you get the idea) please get some perspective and calm down. We could all go up in a nuke ball tomorrow, or our children's children may create Utopia.
