In the beginning of the year, I posted about Cincinnati editorial and sports cartoon legend Jerry Dowling publishing a book highlighting his Pete Rose cartoons over the years.
Well thanks to info from the Cincinnati Illustrators Blog it looks like Jerry is at it again with his new book, Drawing Super Wars: The Early Years of the Bengals available at Amazon and the publisher Edgecliff Press (Click on the title at Edgecliff and you can see all the pages of the book – but of course you need to buy it). Local Bengals Fans can meet Jerry tomorrow at the Books by the Banks event.
Also there will be another local legend Tom Wilson who does Ziggy and wrote a great book “Zig-Zagging: Loving Madly, Losing Badly: How Ziggy Saved My Life”
Not going to be there but future Cincinnati cartoon legend David Wilborn also has a book out with collections of his great Urban Jungle web cartoon. Check him out if you get the chance.
So when is Bearman getting his book published, huh? Finger painting 🙂
Jammers made me say it, honest !!!!!
Yes, it was me. I held up the “finger”, and looner took it from there. I’m having a hell of a time getting it back, although considering where she might have put it, I’m having second thoughts.
a. I need a vast history of work
b. I need more than 30 regulars viewing my site and being fans before it becomes financially worth it to a publisher.
Ha, so all we are is dollar signs. I feel so cheap . . . maybe even as cheap as looner, who refuses to give me my finger back. Bet I can find it on ebay.
Jammer I don’t see dollar signs with you as being one of the first fans of beartoons. In fact when I get rich and famous, I’ll give you a 10% discount on my books.
Hey, maybe I can use that 10% to by my finger back on ebay!
Jammers you won’t want that finger back when I have finished with it!!!! Makes a nice swivel stick 🙂
Ah you can always make your own coffee table book from one of those “publish your own book” software sites. You know the one’s, where you read the fine print and discover they have the rights to use it for their own profits and gain!
Yeah but then each copy of the book would be like $60
Nope, $12.95 or something. I think it’s like Cafepress!!! I thought it was a great idea until I read the fine print. 🙁
That’s for a book with b/w text pages. My world is in COLOR!!!
Make it a coloring in book then!!!!! Problem solved 🙂
I’d buy your book, Bearman…in fact, I’d buy 10 of them…
Do you think you could get them published before Christmas though? I’m planning to give the other 9 away as gifts…
Give me another year and maybe I’ll be ready. In the meantime can I interest you in a Candy Corn Poop tshirt as a x-mas present.
Ok, I’ll give you one more year…
Do the poop shirts come in extra large? My Aunt is a real heifer…
There are “plus” sizes for the slightly larger ladies in your life.
The ‘Natti’s got it goin’ on, doesn’t it? Way to go, guys!
I am trying to get their talent to run off on me.
My guys love cartoon books at Christmas. But publishers are hard to come by.
What kind of stuff do they like?
this is really interesting, I may have to look for it on amazon… thank for the catch.
As I said if you go to the publishers website you can see a pdf version of the entire book.
Who are you really trying to convince that you’re not REALLY a huge Vikings fan, Mr. B?! I know that some day you will be able to admit it! 🙂
I’ve got Nati picked in Sunday’s game. At the rate they’re going, I’m not too worried.
No!!!! When people think they are going to win is when they choke.
