Cover to the 1958 book of editorial cartoons by Merle Tingly

With help of espresso, and the driving drums of Kate, the last few pages have been scanned. The images have had only quick cleanup treatments, but now all 96 pages are up. I didn’t scan the inside front covers as they are blank. I expect to get into enhancing the quality of the scans and adding a bit of description and tagging.

With just one hand, held up high, I can blot you out…. Out of sight… Go to sleep little earth…

The Londoner Cartoons

April 20, 2014

Downtown London Ontario 1842

In this view of Downtown London in 1842, Wellington Street runs across the panel, south to North, Dundas Street runs into the frame, going west. The tree stump covered corner with sheep is home to bank towers, paving stones and metal trees. The stumpy patch on the right was the second City Hall.

Years ago I started this blog to post after publication, the weekly editorial cartoon I was drawing for The Londoner. Servers changed, links were broken. I  moved all the cartoons to the Flikr site. Links were broken. I moved all the cartoons from the Flikr site. In iPhoto, after pulling down the albums from Flikr, before they exploded their limits when some older albums were buried, Links were broken. I generated a lot of duplicates. Culling dupes I am discovering there are some older cartoons missing. I have all the original digital art on CD’s. Drives are gone. Apps are missing. I have found some to fill in spots, mostly in the really very loose Zeroman continuity.

I have moved the cartoons to on Google Drive.

There will be a small celebratory festival upcoming in London, a little TingFest. I posted a couple of things a few years ago, Some Ting Things and Another Old Fogey Story.

And though It might seem expedient, it is a coincidence, because I did finally find the 1958(?) booklet of cartoons.

I had intended for a long time to scan and upload all the pages, but I tucked it away safely in some place where I would know it was safe, and also safely out of sight. Yes, safely, safe, secure and lost. But I found it! And I swear my next project for here is to scan the book and share it. There is no copyright notice on this thing.

And what would be the best share spot? Because Flikr is set up in iPhoto, I suspect the images will go up there.
