New books

I’ve set up a Square store for online book sales. All books are a limited edition run of 20. $25.00 covers all shipping, handling and other annoying stuff.

Check out It’s a LondontLife #1, a collection of local-to-london–ontario-canada editorial cartoons, and the latest cat drawing book, At least 22 cats

This week at LondOntLife

LondOntLife is where I’m putting cartoons. Contributions welcome.

Sometimes London is a sleepy  place, during the summers, with no inspiration for cartoons. Not so this week. Maybe things are on the downslope to slumber, but not this week. LondOntLife is where I hope locally themed cartoons will go.

Both Federal and Provincial governments are encouraging transit systems to move to electrical Light Rail Rapid Transit systems, as opposed to motor driven buses. They are providing grants of large amounts of money. Arguments in favour of Light Rail are rational, thorough, economical and farsighted. London city council voted to support only a locally, minuscule-y (and municipally) funded solution of a Bus Rapid Transit system, of more expensive, more diesel buses.

Well…. Books for Tingfest are built and sent off and ordered. They will each be a limited edition of twenty. One of those has to go to Library and Archives Canada. I wouldn’t mind keeping one for myself, if that’s alright with you. As to any of the other books I’ve printed and distributed, well… I was supposed to send one copy of those to Library and Archives, too. My bad.

Just some more mystery fooling around.

Just some more mystery fooling around. I make a mark and don’t know what it means. Then it becomes something.

A slab wall appears out of nowhere. Or is it a modern sculpture? That Henry Moore hole seems a clue. Or is this Serra? Well, whetever. Whoever makes this based on my design owes me tons of money.

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.

The Londoner Cartoons

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.
